I like to bring out the nice china and wine glasses for the holidays. If there is anytime to treat yourself and guests to a pretty table, I think it is the holidays. I will usually set my dining table days ahead of time. Most recipes will be prepped as far in advance as possible so on the "day of" it is really just assembly of food and some minimal cooking. For centerpieces, I like to go in the yard and clip greens here in there and arrange them in a pretty vase or other vessel. I might also add a few sparkly ornaments on the table and then I am ready for Company! When I throw a party, I prep ahead as much as possible so I can relax and enjoy the company.

If your mother's silver is stored away; read this: I used a polish that "instantly" removed tarnish while applying a glowing protective finish - a year later, while preparing for the holidays, only a few pieces required a touch-up. The polish even restored my fifty year old stainless steel sink and faucet; applying a waterproof shine. Water just rolls down the drain (no more water-spots); and the shine lasts. The polish provides the same results on every type of metal. MAAS metal polish can be found on the internet along with numerous endorsements: Good Housekeeping Institute test results state: "MAAS cleans best and gives lasting results..."
