Think of setting a table much like you would getting dressed. Find a tabletop to organize all the things you want to use on the dining table. That way you can see everything together. Maybe something doesn’t seem quite right. Try something in its place. By having it all together it begins to tell the story of what the table will look like. It’s just a fun visual way to get you excited for the task ahead and keeps you extra organized, which is always a good thing in the entertaining department. Have fun!
