Nothing worse than preparing to set your table, only to discover your linen tablecloth is stained, worn or missing! Take time now to make sure you have all the items you need to set your table, set up your bar, serve your guest… you get the idea.
I want to share an idea that may shock you. Get ready! If you have a large crowd coming for dinner, you might consider using disposable dinnerware. I know you want a lovely table but this saves you HOURS in the kitchen when the meal is over. This also helps if you don’t have enough dishes, silverware, etc. for everyone. You can also set a beautiful table with disposable dishes, napkins, tablecloths. I have done this to create a Thanksgiving themed table. You have to decide what works best for you. This is your event & you should do things the way you want, the way that makes life easier.
Still want a nice table setting but don’t have what you need to make this happen? More in the next challenge!
