In an earlier post, I showed you how to take a serving bowl from “everyday” to “holiday” by using inexpensive scrapbook stickers. Here’s another inexpensive idea for dressing up your holiday place settings, using a “gift” theme. Whether your dishes are holiday themed (like the one in the photo) or not won’t matter with this idea because all you will need, to create this idea, is some ribbon, paper and your computer. I tied some extra and inexpensive ribbon (in a bow) around my dinner plates. Next, I created a sheet of gift tags, using “auto shapes” in Microsoft Word, typed each person’s name (who will be attending my holiday dinner) inside a tag, printed them out and cut them out with a pair of scissors. HINT: instead of regular printer paper, you can use card stock (available at office supply & discount stores) to make the gift tags a little more substantial. Finally, add your gift tag to the bow. As your holiday dinner guests arrive and see their gift wrapped place setting, they will begin to anticipate the scrumptious meal ahead and how that, as well as being together, are truly… gifts!
