Last night I hosted a holiday dinner party, and while I checked out the seasonal serving ware from Sur La Table the other day, I simply couldn't afford it. However, that didn't stop me from creating a beautiful and festive table presentation. My quick and inexpensive ingredient? Tinsel! It comes in every color imaginable and a lot goes a long way. Wind around candles like I did, or create neat rows across the table. When it was dark and the candles were lit, the tinsel glowed and sparkled. It was perfect for a celebratory meal!
