"You can pull a theme together with some pretty paper and a bit of creativity. Line your trays with patterned paper or make cute toothpick flags for desserts and appetizers. My buffets always have a framed sign with a festive phrase, or I print out colorful labels to identify the dishes. Once, when I didn't want to clean lots of glassware, I bought inexpensive red paper cups and stuck on labels that said 'Cup of Cheer.' They're an easy custom crowd-pleaser."
