1. Fresh Flowers, Herbs, or Greenery and a Little Twine or Ribbon
You’ve got everything ready, but take one last glance at your table and think it could just use a little something. Just grab your scissors and head straight to your yard for a little sprig of a herb or greenery or a fresh a flower. Grab a little twine or your favorite festive ribbon and wah-la you have a lovely napkin ring that is also delightfully fragrant. Bonus points if you mix in some of your feather finds.

4. DIY Kraft Paper Tablecloth
Who needs a tablecloth or any fancy place setting for that matter? Simply grab a large sheet of craft paper and a magic marker and you can make yourself a truly unforgettable and unique place setting for each of your guests. We also love the idea of using blank craft paper and providing crayons if you have a kids table. This allows for endless entertainment for the kiddos.
