Go Au Natural
Natural elements such as olive, evergreen, or eucalyptus branches add character to your table setting. Place the branches down the middle of the table or incorporate pieces into place settings. Fruit and berries such as red apples, green pears, and bright holly berries add some colorful holiday cheer.

Add Some Fun
Sprinkle in festive touches like flowers and decorative vases and bowls. You can even spray-paint pine cones or nuts to place along the table. Use these fun elements to create one-of-a-kind place cards for your guests. To add a little more color to your table, try putting mini ornaments in clear vessels!

Cozy Up with Candles
The holidays often bring chillier weather; add some warmth and light with candles. You can use taller candles for a traditional look or use tealight candles in decorative votives for a little extra style.
