How to: Set a Table

DIY + How To

Though the level of formalness might vary from holiday gathering to holiday gathering, it never hurts to be prepared for any eventuality. Therefore we’d like to present to you today, in case you are hosting a holiday dinner gathering or are attending one, the very important and polite how-to post of how to set a table.

Being that we’re neither connoisseurs or experts in etiquette, we can’t be entirely sure the two places we are sending you for reference, here and here, are the VERY BEST places to learn how to set a table, but they sure look good to us. And ever since the very exciting announcement of the engagement of Price William and Miss Middleton, we don’t think you’re in danger of being invited to dine with the Queen (she’s busy planning a wedding, after all).

The question to ask, of course, is it even necessary to formally set a table any more? In these modern, sleek and minimal times, is less is more when it comes to how your table and glass ware interact? How will you be setting your table this year?
