I hosted a dinner party this past weekend and since I was using a pop-up table and had an undone bench around it, I decided to make sure the table was set nicely. My friends would be happy to come over and eat pizza on paper plates, but we were eating a good meal and I wanted it to be nice. Besides, I am pretty sure they enjoyed it too. :)
I had to think for a second on how to do the table settings, so I figured I would share for reference. There are many ways to set a table, so by all means this is not the only way. It depends on if you are having soup, salad, red wine, white wine, champagne, dessert that needs a fork, dessert that needs a spoon, you get the picture.
The Salad Plate is on Top of the Dinner Plate
Right of the Plate – Knife with the sharp edge facing towards the plate (we didn’t need a spoon with our dinner, but normally you would place the spoon to the right of the knife)
Above the Plate – Dessert Spoon or Fork (we had apple/pear crisp with ice cream, so we needed a spoon)
Glasses- Placed at the right corner of the plate – Water Glass to the left, wine glass to the right of the water glass. (I know what kind of wine my friends prefer, so I had a white or red wine glass at each of their settings instead of both).
