For a simple, yet elegant décor idea, try adding a small plain wreath hung from a burlap ribbon. It won’t overpower your chairs or take away from your table décor. Plus, your guests can take a mini wreath home once the meal is over—so it doubles as a party favor.
If you can’t fit all of your favorite ornaments on the tree, don’t sweat it—use them to decorate your chairs. This idea is super easy to put together if your space needs some last-minute décor before the guests come. String the ornament on a ribbon and tie it to the chair in a pretty bow.

These will add both eye-candy and a festive scent to your dining area. Tie branches of rosemary together with burlap and hang from the back of each chair. You can place a special, personalized accent on each finished product, like your guest’s initial, or an ornament they can take home.
Write some holiday phrases on these chalkboard signs, or use them as place cards and put your guests’ names on each one. Take some metal chalkboards (they can be found at Michaels or on Etsy), decorate with chalk marker, and add some other festive accents like berries, greenery, or cutout shapes.
