This is an effortless decorating tip to add a little extra charm to your dining table.  At each table setting, I placed a vintage Christmas card on top of a charger and then covered it with a clear glass plate.  The cards came from a large box that I purchased at a yard sale for fifty cents and I picked up the clear plates at an antique shop for less than a dollar a plate. This simple concept can be adapted to just about anything.  Other ideas include paper snowflakes in January, beloved Valentines in February, seed packets in the summer and leaves in the fall.  Old family photos or postcards can be used throughout the year.  Basically anything that can be used in a frame, can also be used to decorate a table setting.
