For a fun option, name each table after a well-known Christmas panto. If you’d like to carry the names through to decoration, place a prop on each table. You might, for example, have a glass slipper on the Cinderella table or a brass oil lamp on the Aladdin table.

The Names:
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Aladdin, Cinderella, Mother Goose, Puss in Boots, Jack and the Beanstalk
