Planning on doing any entertaining during the holidays?  While we are Celebrating the Sauce, we are hoping that you are too!  I am one of those people who change up how I decorate my dining table, almost every year at the holidays.  It may be because I change my paint color too often (don't ask my husband, you'll get him going for sure...) or because I find some really great holiday piece at the end of the season (or beginning, or during) that changes how I decorate.  Or maybe it is because I am a collector (that's what I am calling it and I am sticking to it) of Fiesta®-ware; and with so many colors and each year there is a new hot holiday color theme that I adore; so I change it up!  Like this year, I am loving the teal, turquoise, peacock blue colors with the limey greens, gold and white  - whatever you call it, I love it! So, I grab my plates and set them out, and decorate around them.  This year my table is sort of a winter wonderland with white trees, gold chargers, green candlesticks and ornaments in those peacock blue and limey green colors.

We thought it would be fun to round up some decorating ideas from around Pinterest to help you with some easy decorating.  Some even reuse/recycle cans!  I know, right?!  I wish I was as creative and clever as so many of you are, but thank goodness you are, because I am here to copy  your creative genius!!  Thanks for sharing!  If you want to show off your holiday table decorating, please post your pictures to our Facebook page or on Instagram and tag with #SundaySauce or #TuttorossoRecipes so we can find you!
