It’s no secret that I love to set a fancy table, but sometimes it can be a lot of work. My most dreaded moment is when the reality sinks in that the party is over and now I have to clean up. I often run a mental checklist while I’m setting the table of what needs to be hand washed and what can go in the dishwasher. I aim to have more dishwasher safe items when I’m hosting because I hate washing dishes, especially when I am hosting larger parties.

Table linens are another thing to consider. I recently washed and dried some new napkins only to discover that they were indeed dry clean only – oops! I definitely prefer more low maintenance pieces, so paper items are a fantastic option. I love mixing them with cloth napkins or tablecloths to keep it from looking too much like a kid’s birthday party. Simply toss them in the recycle bin when you are finished using them. It doesn’t get much easier!
