Hot to Set a Table: A Review

Funny how a book doesn't have to be big, thick, glossy, or fancy to be great. And that's exactly what How to Set a Table by Potter Style turned out to be: a small, unassuming book that's chock-full of useful and interesting information, helpful tips, and super-creative ideas!


It includes some things I already knew (how to place silverware and the difference between wine glasses). But it also taught me a lot of things I didn't know, like how each person should be given about 24 inches of table space. The different sizes of napkins according to use. And how place cards are typically only used for parties of eight or more.

There are also many other fun extras, such as sample settings for a cookout, potluck dinner, birthday picnic, breakfast in bed, and even overnight guests. 

All in all, I know I'll be turning to this little gem many times over during my future entertaining. And I'll really have fun doing so.

*I received this book from Blogging for Books for my review.
