Place Card Primer: A Slew of Snowmen!
Christmas ornaments make great place cards for a joyful holiday spread, like this set of glass, snow-filled snowmen from the home store CB2. I have had these for over a year, and I just love them! I even remember that the original advertisement was so clever, it said something like “Buy a few, because snowmen like friends.” Well, it worked in my case, because I have several!
I dress the snowmen up for dinner with little scarves made from felt scraps, or tiny black hats, and finish each one with a name tag tied around its neck. The sweet look of these little guys on the table always delights my guests.
These ornaments can also be used as a fun and inexpensive centerpiece or as buffet card holders for a winter fête.
