Here a just a few ideas:
- Place votives on the bottom of several juice glasses, and you have a beautiful effect on your table when you light your candles!
- One of my favorite things to do is to use a dinner plate and pour kosher salt all over the bottom evenly and place a glass in the middle filled with beautiful fresh herbs and place it in the middle of the table. Your guests can reach over and grab a pinch of salt and some fresh herbs!
- Use fresh fruits and vegetables to decorate your table as well as in flower arrangements!
You know, it does take just a bit of extra effort to set a table, but judging from the thanks and appreciation I receive from my family and friends, it's so worth it!
Take a look at some of my favorite holiday table settings...although I wish I had the picture of the "after" from the fire!
