Review | How to Set a Table

Well, this is a charming little book. It was quite different than I had expected, but I still love it all the same. From the front cover I had assumed that the inside would be very clean and minimal with vintage type drawings. But, it’s actually full color photographs and descriptions. Definitely more of a modern feel on the inside. It’s neatly arranged and covers pretty much any setting in which you’d entertain including The Dining Table, The Breakfast Bar, The Coffee Table, The Picnic Blanket, The Bistro Table, The Console, & The Serving Tray. The descriptions and suggestions are to-the-point and simple, so not a lot of wording in here. There is a resources page in the back and of course there are pages with descriptions for everything you would use in a place setting. Oh, and I should mention that the cover is covered in cloth … how quaint is that. I look forward to putting this book to good use someday when I have a home of my own to entertain from.
