The Proper Way to Set a Table

We have become a very casual society, and in some ways that is good. We're more laid back than we were 30 years ago. But we may have gone too far, eating on the run, or at fast food restaurants with our plastic utensils wrapped in paper napkins more often than we care to admit.
The holidays will fast be approaching. Whether you have a small drop leaf table set for an intimate dinner for two or a large dining table ready for 12 guests, the last thing you need to worry about is the table setting. You'll be needed as the calm host on the day of your big event, so you'll want to feel secure in your tablescape, having it set well in advance of the meal.
Here's a cute video I found on You Tube. It's only 1 minute long but it tells the whole story. Don't blink!

I hope this will help you to plan ahead, relieving some of the stress of the next few months.
