Joyful Jars – This mason jar centerpiece is lovely. It’s beautiful without being overpowering – plus you can fill as many jars as you need for the length of your table. You’ll need several mason jars, some sea salt, a few candles, some cranberries, and some evergreen branches.

O Christmas Tree Napkin – How cute is this napkin? Getting creative with your place settings doesn’t have to be complicated. A square green napkin and some simple folding will festive up your places in no time!

Wonderful Wood – Wood, pine cones, and deer: oh my! Here’s another rustic table to inspire you. We’re big fans of the table runner they’ve chosen, as well the wood they’ve placed under their plates. 
Pink & WhiteWonderland – Your table isn’t limited to a red and green color scheme this holiday season. Want to break out of the box? Try a white, pink, and gold table! With the right accents (like ornaments and reindeer) you can keep your festive motif while using these fun, fresh colors.
Cute Cranberry Wreath – We’re still fawning over these mini cranberry wreath place settings. They’re a snap to make and add some fabulous, custom charm to any holiday table.
