Set a Relaxed Table
- Skip the formal tablecloth and steal this easy look from your local café. Parchment paper, brown mailing paper, or the roll from a child's easel makes a casual place mat for two when draped across a table. And when the meal is over, cleanup is a snap.
- Use the glasses you have on hand. Forget stuffy rules about using special shapes or sizes for red and white wines. For most table wines, any glass will do. See the Stress Less Shopping List for drink recommendations.
