I do love to dress up the table for our family get togethers and add a little touch of elegance to even the most casual of gatherings.

The last six months have been exhausting around here, beginning with two surgeries for my husband, the birth of our first grandchild, sudden death of my brother-in-law and our crisis with our teenage son.

With all that going on who has extra hours to spend setting a perfect table? Not me so here are a few tips to make entertaining easier for all of us.
