Style your table with peppermint swirl placemats and plates! When I first styled this table I found these great quilted peppermint placemats that came with buttons and buttonholes so your could attach the placemats into a table runner. Sadly, these are no longer available, but here are a couple of options…the first ones are “synthetic leather” and come in a set of six. The second ones are paper and come in a set of 50!

Red, green and white candy cane napkin rings were the perfect way to tie up napkins, a pair of layered candy cane striped over solid red.

When I spotted these salt and pepper shakers I knew these would find a place on my table!  You would almost expect peppermint flavor to shake out of these, wouldn’t you?

Simple clear glass stemware held a little surprise for each guest.  A cellophane bag of chocolate and peppermint kisses was tied up with candy cane and green curling ribbon.  These explosions of curly ribbon added to the decor of the table, too!
