It is my honor to volunteer for the Alzheimer's Idaho support group.  This month is their Christmas dinner so I did one of the tables for them.
I started off with a good table cloth - used one of mine for my dining table and folded it rather than a thin one for a card table - makes a better base for the tablescape.
Since I decided I wanted to use a silver-wintery theme I found some inexpensive glittery fabric that would not fray when cut and made a simple addition to the table.
Very simple to cut lengths of this fabric to drape over the table.
A silver charger, silver china plate and a white desert/canape plate with a silver tree and one little red bird. Simple white lantern, added some silver ribbon and festive silver ornaments.
Snowflake napkin holders, white cotton napkins.
Feel free to copy if you need place cards, the font is listed below.

I found these little silver ornament place card holders and decided that rather than use their names I would use words that best described these wonderful women caring for a family member with Alzheimer's disease.  I also made them for the other tables.  It just seemed appropriate.
