With holiday decorations on sale this is a great time to buy for future events. I have a friend that says he really likes spending my money: however, he seems to find deals that are absolutely great.
If you are planning an event next year take advantage on some of these deals and you can save big-time and have that expensive look for half the cost or less.
Another idea is to use napkin rings as an inexpensive way to class-up your table for that special touch. If you are planning a baby shower or family reunion crop a photo and add for that personal touch. Also consider that napkin ring as a place card idea. Your guest will be totally surprised at your creativity.
