Print out the menu and prepare place cards
Make the get-together special by giving guests an idea of what to expect. Print out the menu on specialty paper and place it on top of each plate.
Make them feel extra special by having place cards, too! You don't need an elaborate layout for the menu and cards—a sleek and readable font will do.
Work on an interesting centerpiece
Do you have a theme in mind? The centerpiece needs to follow the overall theme of the celebration: whether it's a white Christmas, a fancy dinner, or a casual lunch. To keep things simple, you may simply fill a clear bowl with Christmas balls and pine cones. You can also work with jars and vases.
To make the most of the dining table space, you can display desserts: cookies, brownies, and chocolates as the centerpiece.
Accessorizing is a must
You don't need to have tons of accessories on the table—otherwise, it will only turn into clutter that can overshadow the food and affect the ambiance. Opt for scented candles, a few tabletop decor, and an interesting tablecloth.
Bring out your best dinnerware
We're sure that you can't wait to use your prized plates, glasses, and bowls! Showcase your collection by using it for the party. Be careful not to bring everything out! Choose the set that goes well with the theme of your decor and the accessories that you have on the table.
