The Perfect Table Setting

I just love beautiful table settings!  Although Mac and I love to entertain, we usually do so informally.  These beautiful books are not only fun to look at, but are also helpful for finding the perfect setting for any event!  The fabulous descriptions are below!

 "No one knows how to dress a table with elegance and flair better than Phyllis Hoffman, publisher of Southern Lady magazine, the quintessential resource for entertaining the gracious Southern way. Now, Hoffman draws upon her years of expertise to create Southern Lady Gracious Tables, the definitive guide to creating gorgeous "tablescapes" for every occasion."

"Perfect Tables" reveals the secrets behind William Yeoward's eye for detail and color, and shows how you can find inspiration in a fabric or item you may already own. William's invaluable hints and tips include reassurance for the nervous hostess and even dealing with dining disasters! The book concludes with myriad ideas for tying napkins, arranging glasses, and laying cutlery."

These are wonderful books to own and I've just loved the beautiful pictures.  They also give great ideas.  When is your next dinner party?

  1. Setting the perfect table is as rewarding as preparing that perfect feast. Fine china, grandma's silver and fine crystal stemware is a true celebration of life!
