    We don't pretend to rival Martha — after all, on certain days, our culinary ambitions end at Easy Mac (hey, it's called "easy" for a reason!). Still, we love setting up a gorgeous dinner party. And when it comes to creating tabletop magic, much like composing a perfect outfit — topped off with a feathery set of falsies or impeccably lacquered nails — the magic is in the details.

    We've gathered up the gorgeous glasses, darling vintage accents, and pretty place settings that'll steal the show, whether you're serving rack of lamb or frozen ravioli.
