Entertaining should be enjoyable and fun but it can often be fraught with anxiety and stress. Let us show you how to make it fun again with tips on how to set a show stopping table for a formal dinner, informal lunch or picnic in the garden. Think outside the box by using a mix of different china and glassware; theme your tablescape with linens, color, candles, centerpieces and interesting menus.

If you are a “foodie” or just love to entertain, book a class and learn how to set a table to delight your guests, understand the nuances of US and European place settings and how to arrange a table setting for a multi-course formal dinner.

Do you have an invitation to a formal affair? No problem, we can guide you through the protocols of such an event. Have confidence in yourself with the knowledge that you won’t eat your neighbor’s bread or drink their wine, know which flatware to use for each course and be at ease eating difficult foods.

The tips you learn will establish you as the quintessential Host whose events run seamlessly and the Guest people will invite back again and again.
