"I have this passion for entertaining; I've always loved cooking and baking," said Pieterse, who recently released a new book, "Sasha in Good Taste: Recipes for Bites, Feasts, Sips & Celebration."

"I like to create something different for each holiday," Pieterse said.

These place settings are special because they add a personal touch.

"I like to add a tag to it, whether it says, 'What are you grateful for?' or whether it's someone's name or a cute little quote," Pieterse said.

Here how to make the place settings:

You will need cinnamon sticks, fresh rosemary, linen napkins and twine.

1. Cut twine that's long enough to wrap around your cinnamon sticks, rosemary and linen.

You can place it to the side of each plate or at the center. Enjoy!
