Inspirations, instead of names, were in the placecard holders.
Cranberry colored chargers and plates featuring birds complete the picture.
Here are my guidelines for Setting a Festive Table:
Theme - choose one, however subtle it may be
Layer - texture, color or pattern
Shine - add metallic accents for some shimmer
Surprise! - use an accessory in an unusual way (like the marshmallows)
Glow - soften the light with candles or a dimmer switch
Remember my mantra: Pleasing, not Perfect!!

They were expert hot chocolate makers and also provided the holiday recipe cards that we gave away.
