Envision the look of your table. Will you use flowers? Then remember that, if this is a sit down meal, flowers need to be low. I frequently choose a selection of my favorite, small vases and intermingle them with slender candleholders down the length of the table. This adds a warm enticing glow to your room.
Now that you are getting an early start, snoop through your cupboards and find Grandma’s glasses and special plates. Lovingly wash them ahead and set them aside covered by a clean towel. They will be ready and waiting to bring memories back!
I also make drawings of my table plans with sketches of lots of possibilities. This part of your event is great fun when you have time to organize ahead. When it’s time, enjoy it and fulfill your dreams!
