When having family and friends over for the holidays, having them enjoy the décor as well as the menu is a gift in itself! A festive table layout makes your home feel luxurious and your guests feel like they are at a night out having a fancy dinner at a restaurant. But it doesn’t have to break the holiday budget! Here is a DIY design on a dime that combines at home holiday essentials with some dollar deals. Anyone can recreate this table settings quickly and inexpensively.

First, as a table runner, use white snowy blanket material. Next, layout your logs in staggering positions adding the white tapered candles to the center of each. Once the candles are in place, add the Christmas ornaments to the runner, in between the logs and along the table. We used white and frosted ornaments, but any color to match your daily home décor can work!

Next, dinner settings. Place your chargers, soup bowls, and silverware along with your dinner napkins. As a finishing touch, flowers! Baby’s breath and Dusty Miller are placed as wintry centerpieces throughout the runner.
