Dinner Table Decore -
TABLECLOTH • Pull the chairs away so go can walk around the table freely. • Lay the silence pad down and cover with the tablecloth. Make sure that all the sides are hanging true. • Align the needed chairs so they are spaced evenly down the side of the table. • Now sight the chairs that are across the table from each other.
PLACE MATS • Center the place mat on its chair. • The edge of the mat should be 1/2 inch from the table's edge. • If you have the large mats the flatware goes on the mat. For small English type mats flatware goes on the table.
Setting the table • Roll a runner down a table and make sure that the ends hang even. The edge of the runner should be 1/2 inch from the table's edge. • Align the chairs so they are spaced evenly down the side of table. Now sight the chairs that are across the table from each other. • Place a cover plate in front of a chair. The edge of the plate should be 1 inch from the edge of the table. • The basic rules for laying the cutlery are: The handles will be one inch from the edge of the table. • The two outer most pieces are used first. (See our illustrations for the correct piece of flatware for a course). • A soupspoon may go between knives if there is an appetizer before the soup. • The butter knife on the bread plate has the blade face into the center of the plate. • Only the soup course has one piece of flatware all others have two. A salad should be torn into bite size pieces but a knife may be used to push the food onto the fork. • If you have individual salt and pepper shakers they go above the main course fork or above the dessert flatware. If people have to share the hakers they go between the covers. • The bread plate can either go to the left of the forks or above the forks to the of the salt and pepper shakers. • The wine glass for the main course is above the knife for that course. The water glass goes inside the red wine glass and a little above it. The white wine glass goes on the outside of the red wine glass and a little closer to the flatware. If there are other wine glasses used they can lined up behind the first two glasses. • The flatware for dessert goes directly above the plate. The fork goes closest to the plate with the tines pointing to the right. The spoon goes above the fork with the bowl pointing to the right. • The flower arrangements and candelabras should not be above eye level.
