Fill old-style specimen jars with water, and add enough food coloring to produce a suitably supernatural tint. Arrange lotus pods, poppy pods, and coneflower heads within. No evil will darken your doorstep with these eerie elixirs on display.

Giving red envelopes filled with coins is a custom at Chinese New Year (which starts January 26), designed to bring good fortune to the recipients. Here's how to share the luck with dinner guests.
1. Rubber-stamp a red envelope with a New Year's greeting -- in any language -- using a gold-ink pad.
2. Fill it with change, and then lay it on a folded napkin wrapped with a band of patterned paper.
3. Tie in back with gold cord.

Celebrate the new season with place cards that resemble tufts of grass. Cut a 3-by-4-inch rectangle from green card stock. On 1 short side, fold under 1 inch to create a base. Stamp or write a name on the place card. Using scissors, cut a series of grass blades, as shown, stopping about 1 inch from the bottom. To finish, make angled cuts along the top.
