Planning on a kid’s table this year? If so, make it the destination of choice for the little ones at your Christmas celebration.
When setting a children-only table, use bright primary colors. For Christmas, red and green are perfect. Use fun items, like the Santa hat pictured above or a stocking or mitten to mark each place setting. Remember to use age appropriate utensils and cups; and it’s fine to go with disposable. For the centerpiece, you’ll obviously want to stay away from candles and expensive flower arrangements. Swap these for jars filled with candy canes or gum drops or use pedestals layered with Christmas cookies. You may want to remove these items from the table while the kids eat dinner and return them for dessert. When serving dessert, put candles on your cake, pie or cupcakes and let the kids sing “Happy Birthday” to Jesus!
Show your young guests that you spent time on their table and they will feel special too. It’s great training ground and a perfect opportunity to teach proper table etiquette.
