Now that Thanksgiving has passed, it’s time to prepare how you’ll plan for Christmas. It’s one of the biggest and most special holidays every year. If you’re like us, we love to give traditional table settings a twist, such as fun name cards in the form of ornaments, mini trees, candy canes wrapped in ribbons, and candles to lighten up the space.

When you’re decorating your table for Christmas, remember that it should reflect the warmth, cheer, and magic of the holiday season. It doesn’t have to be expensive or over the top as long as you, your family, and guests will love it!
