Christmas Lunch

Bring the Christmas spirit to the table with this DIY place setting. Using our Vivid Wrap in Berry Tartan, we cut a large square pattern that designated each place setting. To frame the beautiful plate and silverware setup, we then used our Vivid Wrap in Red Nordic Flakes to mix up the pattern play.

Our Vivid Wraps is one of our favorite collections of wrapping paper that we bring in each year. They're handmade from recycled paper so you're helping the earth a little bit no matter how you use or reuse each gift wrap.

To decorate the center of the table, we cut the circular snowflake patterns out from our Vivid Wrap and placed them around the table. It adds the perfect little touch for a fun, yet casual tablescape.

Season's Greetings

Take this twist on the traditional Christmas gift opening with a table setting full of white, black and gold colors.

To set the center of the table, use our Chalkboard Table Runner Wrap to run the length of the table, then layer our Auron Wrap in Black with Gold Stars over the top to create your color duo.

We created each place setting by first using our Confetti Gold Placemats, then placing our beautiful Lacquered Gold Trays on top as a modern setting. Use our Confetti Gold Placecards and our Alphabet Stickers to create a customized name card for each guest. It creates such a beautiful presentation without having to do much!

The rest of your table can be decorated by the gifts that you are gifting! See a few of our tips on how you can wrap each one, below.

New Year's Eve

Set a table to toast the New Year from with this champagne setup. Using our Gold Hexagon Gift Wrap, we covered the table to contrast the lighter tones that we then set the rest of the table with. Our Confetti Gold Placemats marked each place setting. Using our Black & Gold Dots Woven Wired Ribbon, we tied each silver setting together and added a Black & Gold Stripe Gift Tag personalized with each guests' name written in our Gold Chalk Marker.
