CREATIVE PLACECARD HOLDERS
An easy last-minute Christmas craft could be creating clever place card holders for your table setting! Use those leftover candy canes to prop up names, or create mini wreaths for each place setting. Pine cones work well, too! You could even brush them with some metallic paint or frost their edges to make them even more festive!

If you’re hosting Christmas Eve or Christmas dinner, this is the time to light the candles! Tall and tapered ones are glamorous atop candelabras and votive candles down lower add to the ambiance. By layering heights, you can achieve a magical glow to match the magic of the season!

FESTIVE FRUITS AND GREENERY
Look no farther than your grocery run or backyard for some final tabletop touches! Pomegranates and pears, citrus fruits, artichokes…even magnolia leaves and small tree branches can bring the outside in to charm guests and enhance the feeling of home.

TOUCHES OF TARTAN
There’s perhaps no more traditional Christmas pattern than Tartan plaid. Add placemats, a table runner, napkins or coasters in Tartan to add texture to your table in a classic way.
