It is best to set the Shabbat table before the start of Shabbat. You will need: Candlesticks with candles or oil lamps (these must be lit before sunset); a cup or goblet and wine or grape juice for kiddush; two whole challah loaves, placed on a tray and covered with a cloth. The table is traditionally covered with a white tablecloth, and richly set with the fanciest tableware you own — as befits the Shabbat queen.
