Speedy Holiday Decorating Idea: Ornaments on Plates

Easy way to dress up your diner table for the holidays

Add instant holiday flair to your table setting by simply placing an ornament on each plate before guests sit down for a dinner party. We chose simple red ball ornaments to add a bit of holiday color to our green and white table color theme. We recommend using the same color and shape of ornament for every place setting in order to create a “wow factor” for your table decor. To take this idea up a notch we tied a string of ribbon around the utensils just for fun and added visual appeal, but if you’re rush for time you can skip the ribbon and still have a great looking table set-up. We also like to stack the plates to add more dimension to the setting and so guests feel like they’re dining at a fancy restaurant.

This idea is so fast and easy that you can set it up in a matter of minutes, just before guests arrive at your house for dinner.

Do you have any quick holiday projects or tips that you’d like to share?
