During the holiday season, it's customary to enliven what's otherwise ordinary: We string lights on trees, bedeck our halls, and arrange carefully cut cookies into the shapes of houses. Seemingly everything — even an item as mundane as a stocking — is just a little bit more special. So, with that in mind, we wondered: Why should a dinner party be any different?
In the spirit of celebrating, try swapping plain, white napkins for linens trimmed in gold, or brighten a bare tabletop with a sweet-smelling spruce. Whether you're a well-seasoned host or an entertaining novice, we're serving up a feast of festive finds sure to help make any holiday shindig extra special. Party on.
