As the holidays near I like to get a head start on decor ideas for upcoming parties and dinners. Here I've rounded up 5 tips and tricks for getting your table setting just right while adding a little pizazz and style.

1. Place Setting Etiquette: the perfect map for the traditional place setting, from The Tasty Design.

2. Polish Your Silverware, Naturally: these DIY tutorials from The Daily Green will help you clean your silver and copper ware with ketchup, toothpaste and baking soda.

3. DIY Tablecloths: try using cheesecloth, an ombre dyed tablecloth or sewn scalloped oilcloth.

4. Add a Pop of Color: try adding neon napkins or a table runner, rusty oranges for fall, or any color complimenting your dining area.

5. Floral Arrangements and Natural Materials: consider accenting your tableware with succulents, pebbles and rocks, single flowers in vases, or pumpkins and gourds.
