Another simple idea for your Christmas table… place a small holiday ornament or sprig-like decoration on each plate. Ornaments that combine fruit, satin-covered balls and/or greenery work well.

If using an ornament like the ones I used here (with a stem) use a wire cutter to cut the stem shorter.

You could use matching ornaments on each dinner dish at your Christmas table, or mix it up a little and use coordinating, but not matching pieces…
