I'm not usually one for formal tables, but sometimes it's fun to go all out and set it up. Usually the parties I have are too crowded to serve a sit down meal. Every now and then, though, I have a smaller gathering and pull out my best china. Whether you're planning a intimate dinner date or are inviting relatives for a holiday dinner, they'll love the idea of formal tables as much as you do. Check out these great examples to inspire you.
