Delight the kids' table with these gorgeous snowman place settings. You can even use disposable plates and napkins for easy cleanup! Align a large plate and smaller salad plate to form a snowman body, and position a knife and patterned paper napkin above the salad plate to form a hat. Fluff an additional paper napkin and secure it underneath the plates to form a scarf. Extend a fork and spoon outward from the body as snowman "arms," and add facial features with baby carrots and gummy candies.
Form a wintry forest on your tabletop with shaved-bark trees and a few cleverly placed log slices. Lacy-edge white china pops against a log-slice charger; tiny slices form place cards and wine coasters. Wrap white napkins in jingle-bell rings to complete the setting.
Want a touch of sophistication on your holiday table? This gray and wine-hue place setting has you covered. Plates, runners, and napkins coordinate in cool shades of silver and gray, and red vases and a small wrapped gift create warm contrast. We threw in a bowl of frosted red fruit, created by brushing with slightly beaten egg whites and sprinkling superfine sugar over the top, for powdery sparkle.
