Setting Your Holiday Table

Setting Your Holiday Table

During the holidays, the table is arguably the most important spot at the party.  Whether it’s to munch on finger foods at the office Christmas gathering, or sitting down with the family to a filling New Year’s Eve feast, at some point we all find ourselves there, at the table.
