Make Rudolph and his sleigh full of goodies the star of the table with this fun centerpiece decor. Simply print and cut the Rudolph printable graphic and sleigh templates, and hot glue them to a circular piece of white cardstock to make them stand up. Embellish with ribbon and cover base with fake snow or shredded coconut for a touch of seasonal sparkle.
Don't worry about fussy centerpieces for this informal picnic. Plop some seasonal flowers in a mason jar and scatter fall fruits, like small pears, and berries around the table. It's a little thing that adds a lot to the overall look of the table.
