You could spend your time embroidering a beautiful one inspired by the stars, but your friends are gross and dirty and they're just going to ruin it anyway — so stick with this cool paper version that you can make and toss after someone inevitably drops a giant blob of cranberry sauce on it.

3. Milk Carton Vases

Your friends definitely don't need to be manhandling grandma's antique glass vases. Take an exacto knife and some paint to an empty milk carton and pile in the blooms for instant idiot-proof prettiness.

5. Animal Place Card Holders

Sarah hates Beth because she used to date Shane and Kara can't be near Jeff after he insulted her dog at Jason's 4th of July party last year. Yeah, seating arrangements are freaking complicated, but at least everyone will have something shiny to stare at while they're mulling over their hatred.

6. Painted Napkin Rings

OK, so this probably isn't the occasion to waste your good linens (and a trip to the laundromat) but fancy napkin rings around a stack of paper towels is just as classy, no?

8. Framed Chalkboard Menu

Chances are at least one person is going to complain about what you're serving. Slap the menu up on a framed chalkboard to ensure they are allowed maximum airing of grievance time.
