Don't forget to polish all the silver in advance--even things you don't use often--so that you won't have to do it at the last minute. I was glad I'd done all my flatware and serving utensils before Thanksgiving, for which I wasn't even going to cook until my parents decided to come to town on the spur of the moment. I wound up doing dinner for 9, which was stressful enough without silver polishing.
