When Mandy from Waiting on Martha creates a tabletop for entertaining, she starts with all of her favorite things, and as you can see from her gorgeous photos, when you start with what you love, entertaining becomes enjoyable and effortless. “The wine is flowing and my table is filled with my favorite finds, like a blue and white pitcher, rustic cutting boards and serve ware that looks like it was plucked straight from someone’s wine country home or French country cottage. Suddenly, beautiful gatherings seem completely achievable—and affordable,” she says.
Her curated spread has a laid-back California feel that encourages friends and family to sit, sip and nibble, and stay awhile.
