Keeping the table set on Shabbat


One should try to keep his table set all of Shabbat, in honor of the royal presence of the day.

Some have done this by arranging three layers of tablecloths before Shabbat, so that when a meal ended they removed the top cloth, and the cloth below was ready. Even if one does not do this, one can make sure that the dining area is nicely arranged even between meals.

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 262:1; Aruch haShulchan)

Have a great day,
