Read an Excerpt

Setting the table can be a family activity that enriches our daily lives. The time and care put into setting a table for family or guests is an expression of love. Details such as a beautiful napkin fold or a handwritten place card show that we care. The things that happen at the meal table affect our everyday moods and attitudes. Prayers, conversations and the rituals of dining are all things that play a role in our memories or recollections of a certain occasion. A meal can set the tone for the remainder of the day or evening, so it is important to make it beautiful. A well-designed table is a way to break the ice for guests who might not know how to start a new conversation, and-let's be honest-a well-designed table makes the food taste better!

    Beautiful, Inspiring Ideas

    This is a beautiful book of ideas for table settings for any occasion from the usual holidays to engagement, anniversary, and baby shower parties; casual brunches to formal dinners. The color photos are gorgeous and show dozens of ideas for decorating a table for entertaining whether it be for an intimate gathering or a large dinner party, indoors or outside. Some ideas are simple yet sophisticated with a single bouquet of flowers to show off beautiful china. Others are elaborate and sometimes surprising such as the one that features dressed manequins posed in the middle of a large table.

    While this is mostly a book of pictures that shows the overall effect of tablesettings as well as the smaller details, the author does include tips and advice throughout. I especially appreciated that she writes on the topic of manners and etiquette because those things never are out of style and are appropriate for every occasion. Also included are tips on invitations, seating of guests, and the common rules of etiquette for dinner parties.

    Many of the ideas in this book are more formal than I personally would use, but they still inspire me to try creative table settings that fit with my personality and entertaining style. This would be a wonderful gift for a newlywed or anyone who enjoys entertaining.
