How to set a dining table

1. Get the basics. These consist of the main dinner plate and the drinking glass. Set the dinner plate in front of the chair (center it) and place the drinking glass on the right side of the plate accordingly.

2. Add to the dinner plate a napkin placed in the center. Alternatively, place the napkin either on the table to the left of the forks, or on a side plate; some people roll up the napkin and place it into a wine glass. Add a small bread plate with a knife placed inside of it horizontally to the upper left corner of the dinner plate (American setting). Or, use it as a “side plate” and have it placed to the side (English setting), with the butter knife still upon it (that is if the course meal have bread on your menu list).

3. Add the silverware (cutlery).

Place the two to three forks on the left side of the dinner plate (salad fork, meal/dinner fork, and fish fork if using).

Above the plate goes the dessert fork tine facing right (toward the glass) and the dessert spoon facing left.

Place the dinner knife on the right side of the plate and the butter knife following.

Align a soup spoon next to the knife if having soup. Any teaspoons being used will be placed between the knife and the soup spoon.

If having a cocktail fork, this sits next to the spoons, at the outermost edge.
