"To set my table for the holidays without spending too much money, I use my everyday dishes and add a colorful charger at the bottom. After the holidays are over, you could invest in holiday-themed dishes or salad plates at a reduced price and mix them with what you already own... next year." —Christy Rost, author of Celebrating Home: A Handbook For Gracious Living (Bright Sky Press)
