How to set up the tablecloth and the napkins?First of all choose your tablecloth carefully: it must be made of fabric, clean and well ironed. It must also be large enough to fall widely on each side. If your tablecloth is too small, you can connect several smaller tablecloths but preferably identical and in threes so as not to have a connection in the center. (What do you mean you don't have 3 identical tablecloths?) The most chic hosts place an under-tablecloth or a fleece under the fabric to dampen the noise of the many glasses, dishes and plates. The napkins must be made of fabric, match the tablecloth and also be perfectly ironed. You can place them in the center of each plate, but their place is more generally on the left of the plate, near the cutlery.

Other recommendations for a perfectly set tableDoes all this seem complicated to you? It is ! It is also up to you to adapt these rules according to your table, your dishes, your habits and the level of requirement of your guests. If setting a table in the state of the art can be fun, it is not about turning your dinner into a nightmare. Remember that being in good company around an appetizing table is the essential aspect of a meeting with family or friends! But if you want to carry the experiment to the end, here are some other tips that might be useful to you: * When your guests arrive, the table must already be set (yes, even the plates that will be removed during first service). However, no dish should appear at the table before the guests are seated. * Mineral water should not be served in bottles. Pour it into a nice carafe that you will place on the table. * The bottles of wine must be placed in front of the master of the house who will serve. If you are using a decanter, leave the bottle in sight so that guests can see it. * Do not forget to place a salt and pepper shaker at the table, and if your menu provides for it, a small plate of butter near each guest, at the top left of the plate. * Do not overload the table with decoration. The idea is to showcase your dishes, not hide them under the ribbons, the subjects and the fabrics! Not too fragrant flowers or an elegant table runner are usually enough to dress up a festive table, and the dishes themselves set the tone for the event. Even if you "pack the package", avoid excessively large decorations which may disturb the guests or the service.
