Expert Tips

Christmas ball ornaments also make charming place settings. Write the name of each guest on an ornament with a metallic marking pen. Set one ornament at each place setting and steady it on a vinyl hose washer--that's right, the kind you find at your local hardware store. The washers work great for making the ornaments stay put, and you can spray paint them to match. Remove the tops from the ornaments, and fill about half full with water. Place flowers in ornaments and tie with a decorative ribbon.
