I don’t do a lot of entertaining, but I hoard books on cooking, entertaining, and etiquette. The most recent addition to my collection is How to Set a Table by Potter (c/o Blogging for Books). This small, cloth-covered book is chock-full of creative ways to set a table. From Tuesday takeout to a seated dinner party, there are beautiful photos that will inspire you to pull out the good china for every occasion. And, if you don’t know a charger from a dessert plate, there’s a section that explains dinnerware basics.
I once read that you should only buy white dinnerware because you will always be able to mix and match white pieces. What’s your favorite tip when it comes to setting the table?
