Worth Mentioning: Our judges describe this as a simple, clean tabletop that features food placed in the proper dishes, which leads to a nice presentation, not one that's overcrowded. While the napkin hanging over the side of the table is visually appealing, our judges wondered how practical that is. The nicely weighted silverware fits well with the overall environment and the steak knife and centerpiece holding the salt and pepper add nice visual elements, too.
