Figuring out which fork to use for which course can be confusing enough, but having to actually set those forks—and everything else on the table? A recipe for disaster… or a chance to strut your etiquette stuff. PLAY

You Will Need

A table

Enough place settings for everyone PLAY

Step 1: Space plates around table

Space dinner plates around your table, leaving enough room in between to accommodate cutlery. PLAY

Step 2: Place bowls or appetizer plates

When applicable, place soup bowls or appetizer plates on top of the dinner plates.

If you plan to plate individual food servings in the kitchen and serve them to the table fully assembled, start each place setting with an artfully folded napkin where the dinner plate would otherwise go. PLAY

Step 3: Fold napkin

If you haven’t used the napkin in the middle of the place setting, fold it and place it to the left of the plate

If you have the origami skills to turn the napkin into a tea rose or a Great Blue heron, simply placing the napkin to the left of the plate is a waste of your talents. Put your creation on top of the plate. PLAY

Step 4: Place silverware

Place the knife to the immediate right of the plate with the blade facing in, the dessert spoon to the right of the knife, and the soup spoon on the outside. PLAY

Step 5: Place dessert silverware

If you’ve placed the dessert-spoon above the plate, place the dessert-fork directly under it, with the tines pointing right. If not, place the dessert-fork to the immediate left of the plate. Place the entree fork to the left of the dessert fork, and the appetizer or salad fork on the outside. PLAY

Step 6: Place salad & bread plates

Place salad plates to the left of the outermost fork, and bread plates above the forks. PLAY

Step 7: Place glasses

Put water glasses just above the tip of the knife, and wine glasses to the right of the water glasses. If you’re serving more than one wine, put wine glasses in order of use with the glass to be used last next to the water glass and the glass to be used first on the outside.

When in doubt, remember LERD: Left for eating, right for drinking, and start at the outside and work in. PLAY

Do you know?

In Medieval times, diners used large slices of stale bread, called trenchers, as plates. It made it much easier to clean when one could simply eat the plates afterward. PLAY
