I’m no Martha Stewart, but I do like to indulge in fantasies of being that perfect hostess. I’ll never have her effortlessness in the kitchen, but thanks to Sur La Table, I can set a mean table to rival even Martha’s. Sur La Table, which literally means “on the table,” carries the most beautiful things for your table, including linens, servingware, utensils, glassware and place settings. Whether you’re going for a classic look with fine white china, a rustic Italian flair, or more modern square dinner plates, you’ll find the perfect look here. They also have every cooking and baking pan, dish and utensil imaginable, for when you do decide to brave the kitchen. You can find inspirational recipes on their website, and even sign up for in-store cooking classes. Or just buy some of their fancy ready-made sauces, spices and desserts to serve a maximum-impact meal with minimum effort.
