Unique Table Runners: Setting your table for 3 major holidays

Wrapping paper is one of the most versatile things in your entertaining arsenal. While it can of course be used for making gifts look lovely, wrapping paper has many other uses, too. My personal favorite, is using it for a quick table runner. Not only will it bring instant color to your table, but it makes clean-up a breeze. 

Last week I took a stroll through my local Hallmark to check-out their wrapping paper section. Not only was I greeted with fabulous paper, but I also found an incredible selection of accessories and tags which, as you will see, make great table accessories and name plates. Plus, Hallmark was running a special in which if you bought one roll of paper, you got an additional roll for $1...not to mention several of my wrapping paper choices were already on sale for 30% off. Two thumbs up, Hallmark

Since I found so many beautiful wrapping papers, I decided to show you how to achieve an easy table look fit for the next three major holidays: Thanksgiving, Christmas & New Years Eve. Since I wanted to make it a point to use what you have, I didn't change any of the items I used other than the wrapping paper & name plates (all from Hallmark). Everything else is straight from my own collection of china & glassware. In my opinion, you don't have to buy something new to host, especially with these gift accessories from Hallmark. 

Take a look at my video showing a quick glimpse into each tablescape, or scroll down for more information on creating three beautiful tables of your own:

Thanksgiving: Use brown craft paper from Hallmark for this table runner. The best part? It is the perfect width, so you can easily add it over your favorite tablecloth without having to worry about cutting a straight line. Add a leaf with guests name (from your own yard) for a splash of color. Oh, and don't forget to have to-go boxes readily available to send guests home with leftovers. I love these brown boxes tied up with ribbon. 

Christmas: For Christmas, I'm loving classic red this season, so I chose a plaid wrapping paper for my table runner. I also picked up two red bells & two red ornaments to serve as place cards. I love that each guest can take their place setting gift home and add it to their own tree. 

New Years Eve: New Years Eve is an excuse to get glamorous. Use silver chargers (seen in every other tablescape) against metallic scallop paper from Hallmark. I love the glimmer that dances off of the stemware from the paper. I also used gift tags as place cards. Instead of writing guests name, write fun New Years Eve inspired words like "cheers," "clink," "pop," and "fizz." 

There you have it! Three tables without changing more than the table runners & takeaway gifts! All thanks to the amazing selection of Christmas decor at Hallmark
