1. Instead of place cards with your guest name on it, cut out pictures

of celebrities, put them at each setting and let your guests figure out

who is who.

2. Put a dozen apples in a bowl

3. Invest in a cheap tabletop turntable. Dinner will never be boring


4. Your local hardware center is filled with pipe fittings and locking

nuts that cost pennies and make awesome napkin rings.
