It isn’t just about a centerpiece – although that is definitely important – you also need to think about other things that you can create on your own:

  • Color Scheme: Do you stick with traditional red and green or do you branch out to other fun colors?

  • Lighting: Pillar candles, votives or both? Overhead lights?
  • Paper: Place cards? Dinner menu?
