I buy really pretty wrapping paper and I "wrap" my table with it. Then when we're all done, I just roll the whole mess up and throw it away!
I love personalized place card holders. You can buy ornaments really cheap after Christmas, and put people's names on them with a metallic pen (from a craft type store like Michael's, JoAnn Fabric, Hobby Lobby, etc.). I have put them in champagne glasses (plastic) full of cut up ribbon or confetti, so they sit on top of the glass.
One year I had plastic "donkey" ornaments, and we had a riot with that. We were the "ass" family that year. We had fuss ass, crab ass, tight ass, smart ass, wise ass and so on. The fun part was we told everyone to just sit at the ornament that they felt described them. Also did that with the 7 dwarfs another year. Everyone tried to sit at "dopey", lol.
