Set the Table for the Holidays

For any holiday party, the way you set your table can really make a dramatic impact on the room, and on the overall feel of the party.  Make your guests feel extra special this year and really wow them with your table.  Here are some great examples.
Use old sheet music for a placemat.  I think this looks beautiful against all the silver, white, and green.  It would be cute if you used Christmas-themed music.
A bundle of cinnamon sticks wrapped in some twine and a rustic ornament make this table feel personalized and elegant.
Silver, silver, and more silver.  Bring it out for the holidays.  Let your table sparkle and shine.
Add in some antique blue for a fun Christmas table.  I love silver and blue together.
Keep it rustic with some evergreen, and add lots of browns.  
Add some drama with a large centerpiece filled with brightly colored and differently textured ornaments.  A simple candle in the middle will make it elegant.
Wrap a surprise gift for each guest.  It could be something as simple as dinner mints or chocolate.  Its the thought that counts.
Use ornaments as place card holders.  Simple and festive.
