1. Utensils, Charger and Plates, and Glassware

This point is pretty self-explanatory, all the items you need for your table for your guest to have a fabulous meal. Make sure to plan your utensils, chargers and plates, and glassware right according to your menu! Tip: Chargers and plates play an important part on the table. You can either spice it up and tone it down on the table with the plates you are using. Gold and silver utensils are also a good way to spice up your table, especially for the holidays! 
Here is a vast difference in using different chargers and plates:

2. Cloth Napkins

It is a must! We guarantee you that this will come in handy to stand up with your messiest fingers, greasy lips, and stains — every single time! Your guest will not have to find their way (in your house) to disposable serviettes.
We recommend using cloth napkin instead of disposable ones with a few simple reasons: it is less wasteful and they can last you almost forever. Napkin has multiple uses from lining serving baskets to wine bottle wrap. The list is almost endless. To sum up this point for this Christmas post, a napkin is also a GREAT decorative tool for your table!
Here are some ways you can use a napkin for Christmas:
Fold a lovely Christmas Tree or simply a squared one.

3. Table Runner

Table runner comes in all sort of sizes, colours, and fabric. They look great on long rectangular dining tables and changing them out is easy from season to season. Ideally, table runners are placed lengthwise to create a focal point for the table's decoratives. In addition, table runners can be also placed widthwise on long or short tables. You can skip the placemat by placing it widthwise to visually and physically divide the place setting. 

4. Centrepieces: Christmas Decoration

Fresh flowers, candles, Christmas ornaments are gorgeous centrepieces for the table. To give it a blink on the table, add sparkly Christmas lightings!

Wouldn't it be nice to receive something on Christmas? Even a small gesture of giving is lovely. Spruce up each place setting with a personal small gift.
