Sparklers create a grand exit -- the next best thing to fireworks! Make it easy for guests by providing buckets of sparklers. Line walkway with lit votive candles so guests can easily light their sparklers.
Make a festive feature of your Christmas place settings. Try wrapping napkins with twine rather than a napkin ring and finish with cinnamon sticks, sprigs or holly/rosemary or twigs spray painted gold or silver.
