Fun Decorating Tricks For The Kids Table, From Sandra Lee

When it comes to holiday entertaining, Sandra Lee, Editor-in-Chief of Sandra Lee magazine, had many quick and easy solutions to share when she stopped by to chat with me on Mondays with Marlo. Sandra knew a few great tips for making the "kids table" more fun.

Sandra loves to decorate the kids tablescapes with a little bit more fun and festivity than the adult space, with things that keep the kids busy and entertained. Sandra suggests ornament-painting kits and temporary tablecloths for quick, easy clean-up. She also loves miniature toy sets, which come with about 20 miniature figurines. She'll take out the figurines and put them in a stocking with a candy cane and a short holiday story for the kids to discover. That way, everyone can participate in their own table story, separate from the adults.
