I took the plastic placemats from the shelf and arranged two flatware settings each with a knife, dinner fork and spoon on the table. I placed two clear water glasses of the multi-purpose variety bought in a four-boxed set at any discount store near the Corelle white square dinner plates with black squiggly lines. Paper napkins left over from the holidays were folded. I moved the assorted pile of bills, new appliance directions and books out of the way to be cleared tomorrow. 

There. Dinner is served before watching Downton Abbey, and seeing how the Edwardians did it up grand.
