setting the perfect table: how do you do it?

I’m an avid cook, but I rarely host dinner parties. Mostly I avoid the affairs because I don’t have a table. On special occasions, I turn my freestanding butcher block into a small kitchen table, but most of the time my boyfriend and I eat on the couch. (I know, I know.) Despite my lack of a table to set, I’ve come to appreciate a beautifully laid out table. I saw this red radish place setting over at Apartment Therapy Re-Nest and my mind has been racing with new ideas. Do you take the time to really set your table for dinner? Do you have any tricks up your sleeve for making a statement with your setting? –Erica P.
