  • Floral shears
  • Evergreen branches (about the thickness of a pencil)
  • Hot-glue gun
  • Card stock
  • Calligraphy or felt-tip pen
  • Small evergreen sprigs


  • With floral shears, cut slim evergreen branches into 4-inch segments. Trim off any nubs.
  • Holding two segments of about the same thickness, adjust them to fit together snugly -- this might require some twisting, turning, and further trimming.
  • Turn pair of branches over; run a line of hot glue across the pair's width, 1/4 inch from each end. Let dry.
  • Write a guest's name on a 1-by-2 1/2-inch piece of card stock.
  • Slip place card into holder; tuck a small evergreen sprig into one end.

Now just make sure you have the right dining pieces to fit all your friends and family! We have plenty of options below including contemporary bar tables, bar stools and dining tables below.
