If you're hosting a Christmas or New Year's Eve party, you'll want to give your guests something else to post Instagram other than pictures the food! We've got these simple table setting ideas that will put them in the mood to celebrate!

1. Create height
Got a dessert and drink station? Glassware of varying heights ensures the table doesn't look flat. Start by using candle holders of different sizes. They'll create a warm ambience, too!

2. A colourful table runner
Get crafty by designing your own table runner and printing it out. At the end of the party, should it get soiled, you won't have to worry about washing it. Just dump it out.

3. Use ornaments
Work Christmas ornaments into your table setting like this star on the cake stand. Fuss-free styling!

4. Have fun with cutlery 
Get your guests to interact with the table setting. The tie that holds the cutlery together would make a great gift for your guests, too. 

5. Napkin origami
Instead of paper napkins, invest in real ones to impress your guests and add colour and texture to the table. Check out the tutorial below for ideas.
