holiday decorating with ribbon

Ribbon has always been one of my favorite tools for dressing things up without breaking the bank. Use it to create a makeshift table runner, tie napkins, or to transform your everyday serveware or home decor into pieces that perfectly match your party theme. Example: everday white vase + red ribbon = instant “candy cane” container!

1. Ribbon Table Runner
– (Budget tip: use fabric or gift wrap paper for the widest piece)
2. Ribbon-Accented Table Setting – Another option is to put the ribbon under the main plate so that it’s only covering the charger, which won’t require removal to eat!
3. Elegant Ribbon Roses – made from 5-inch wide wired ribbon
