Looking for ideas on how to set your table beautifully for holiday dinners? We’ll you’ve stopped by the right place!

I’m going to share a few tips¬† on place settings today that will hopefully give you some inspiration and get your creative juices flowing.

If you are entertaining on a budget and don’t have enough matching dishes to accommodate your guests, no worries! Use what you have, just make it festive.

Promise you will not go purchase paper plates. For close to the same price, you can invest in some real plates that you’ll use time and time again. Go to the dollar store and pick up some plain white or even clear glass plates. You can also find some great buys in thrift stores. Purchase a plain pattern that can mix and match with pieces you may already have. Go all white or all cream and no one will notice all the pieces aren’t exactly the same.

For inexpensive table coverings that are easy care and fuss-free, use sheets (that’s right, sheets). You can find them in all sizes and colors and they are very inexpensive. If someone spills all over them, you won’t be hyperventilating worrying about getting the stain out. You can also make very affordable place mats out of felt. Purchase pre-cut pieces at craft stores for less than a dollar each.

Think about what type of look and feeling you are trying to convey. Fun, elegant, traditional?

Here are a few ideas to get your started:

Happy Holiday Entertaining!
