How would you prepare for a freeze right now?

After a stretch of glorious 60 degree days, there's a freeze advisory for my area (southern CT/ Fairfield County) in place for this eve. I'm wondering what i need to do to protect my plants. (Or if indeed I need to do anything. At the moment the weather forecast says 36 for tonight -- but the weather advisory, which covers my area, warns of temperatures as low as 30...)
I would love to hear from others in roughly this area what they would do to protect against a frost at this time. Should I be throwing sheets over things? Which things most susceptible to damage? I have Japanese maples with new foliage... azaleas that are about to flower... hydrangeas with new growth, etc etc.
Or maybe I'm worrying about nothing! That would be nice to hear 😊
