Let’s Discuss Some Dining Table Etiquettes, Shall We?February 1, 2015 286 0 0
Hosting a dinner at your place also becomes a grand affair when you know you have to get your stylish crockery in place. Fine cutlery plays a very important role in brushing up your table manners. Setting up a perfect complimenting cutlery along with neatly maintained dishes to serve adds a feather in your cap. To be very precise our entire agenda for having a discussion over this topic is simply to avoid social embarrassment!
So, to make your dining experience a lot more simplified and make you stand tall amongst the elite crowd here are a few tips to follow >>
As we all know what is not supposed to be done, let’s discuss what you should be doing & how should you place your cutlery and crockery to receive that much needed appreciation >>
Point 1: Simple, table manners
Least you can do is, follow the old school manners which were obviously taught at a very early age. For eg; make a use of napkin or tissue while you sit for having meals. Always keep the glass of water away from your dish so that you don’t fidget and drop it in your plate carelessly.
Point 2: Glass Crockery - Handle With Care
As it goes without saying, glass becomes extremely delicate and cautious to handle, but it’s always a good idea to have glass cutlery on your table. Make use of this delicate cutlery as least as possible to avoid accidental breakages. Also it’s helpful for serving champagne or wine! Along with it, hard designer plastic and stainless steel also works brilliantly.
Point 3: Keep a set of butter knives and forks
Once you set your dining table and decide on the chair positions, place the tissue and table cloth which will be followed by serving plates, wine and water glasses as knives and forks will be sitting at the extreme left. Complete your setting with tiny hankies at other ends near the plates.
Point 4: Add some silverware cutlery
If you are an admirer of silver and know its nutritional values, you’d agree with me as on why I am asking you to include this metal in your crockery. Silver cutlery looks elegant and uber sophisticated. You may also go for dinning forks, spoons and bowls in addition.
Point 5: Keep Soup Bowls, Cocktails, and Salad Servings Separately
Many of us do not like to mix the meals and keep jumping between starters, soups, cocktails and salads in between the main course. So to avoid the hassles and inconvenience to the person whom you’re serving the food, keep these things handy but another side of the table.
