When you cater for a number of family and guests at your home, you may need to write down a checklist before you start preparing the epic meal. Sometimes you may forget a few steps in the process and therefore you may find yourself forgetting to hand out drinks or preparing the table.

Therefore to save you from this mess it is highly recommend that you do all of the tasks which can be completed and left alone. One of those is setting the table which once it has been completed, guests and family members can look upon with awe when they come to sit down. This will also help you keep track of time as you won’t have to mess around with setting the table during the dinner service and if you place out all of the dinner mats on the table you can easily server the dinner on the pre-set plates you placed down earlier.
