setting the table
When setting the table, it is important to start with a smooth, firm foundation. Carefully work all the wrinkles out of the tablecloth. If you layer lace over a solid cloth, this can be difficult unless you have well trained and willing assistants.
"Looks pretty good to me, boss."
Select cups and plates, and arrange attractively with napkins and silverware.
Choose and place serving plates to accomodate the goodies.
Accept the approval of your supervisor.
On the day of the party, plate and display goodies, add flowers, guests, and happiness. Enjoy!!
