Setting Up The Notebook

Let's start making our tabs, we will need one each for tableware, linens, menus, decorations, pantry and misc.  Tableware should be the one to work on first. This way you can fill in what items are missing, like the gravy boat Uncle Harry broke last year.

You are not limited to what you have on hand. Check out your local thrift shops for unusual serving dishes or dinner plates.  China does not have to match just look good together. Stagger the patterns!  Remember the food is the star of the table. If you can pick up two open stock white dinner plates for the next month, you have service for eight. This will give you more options. White dishes go with everything and all occasions, you can add add a pop of color with your table linens or tablescapes.
