There’s something about that holidays that makes people want to gather and celebrate. You probably want to have a little get together to entertain some friends in the next few weeks but you don’t want to spend too much money setting your table.

After all, you need that moola for purchasing gifts.

1- Wrapping paper as a table runner.

Use a plain table cloth or fabric and then make it fabulous with patterned and/or bold wrapping paper. Cut wrapping paper with pinking shears to craft a runner. Use double-stick tape to secure the runner to the tablecloth.

2- Inexpensive votive holders as flower vases.

You can spend a lot less on flowers by doing this. Place one or two buds in each holder.

3- Print personalized menus as place cards.

You can type it up on any word processor using nice font, print it out on regular print paper and glue it on to colored card stock.

4- Make a burlap table runner in under 10 minutes.

Just cut the burlap to size and pull on the ends to create the fringe. Add ribbon on the ends for a finished look.
