Decorate the Christmas table extra festively
The Christmas table needs to be decorated and every family has their own traditions, from an elf scenery to a simpler way with just a Christmas tablecloth and candles. That is how it is supposed to be. Though it is fun sometimes to try something different. That could be decorating not only the table but also the chairs. Try this paper cone decoration. It is fairly simple to make and it peps up the Christmas decorations a bit.
The decoration on the chairs will definitely be met with excitement.
