Go Classy With Place Settings

Speaking of place settings, this is a no-fail way to make everyone at your holiday dinner feel extra special. The basic setting is easy to arrange. Start with a dinner plate, then place the fork to the left of the plate and the knife and spoon to the right. Set wine and water glasses above and to the right. Voila! You have a gorgeous place setting.

Combine Styles

You don’t want your table decor to be too matchy-matchy, giving off the impression that you just went to the store and purchased a party kit. To avoid this, try combining different styles of accessories, like traditional and trendy, and even using mismatched plates.

Forgo the Tablecloth

Depending on the fabric and design, tablecloths can be rather old-fashioned. Instead of hiding your beautiful dining table under a tablecloth, draw eyes to it and add a pop of color with a table runner. You’ll also protect your table from spills and hot serving dishes.
