Setting the table is frequently a hasty, last-minute activity that might leave you confused about where to place the flatware, plates, napkins, and glassware. Don’t add stress to your dinner plans by focusing on the food, your family, and friends with these very simple table setup ideas.
Begin with a simple setting to dress up the table and create a relaxed atmosphere for your dinner party or holiday celebration. Add more items to the table for a more formal setting by bringing additional plates, cutlery, glasses, and other serving pieces as shown below.
Basic Table Setting
This arrangement is suitable for most events, and you can supplement the basic components as needed.
Everything else is arranged around the dinner plate, which is put in the center of the place setting. The flatware is then put around the dish in the following order:
- To the left of the plate is the fork.
- To the right of the plate is the knife and spoon. The knife is placed to the right of the plate with the sharp edge toward the plate. To the right of the knife is the spoon.
- A water glass goes above the knife.
In an informal environment, napkins might be placed under the forks or on the plate.
Luncheon Table Setting
Simply begin with a basic setting and supplement it with the following items:
When serving a salad, place the salad fork to the left of the dinner fork. If no salad is provided, position the salad fork to the right of the dinner fork to be used as a dessert fork if desired.
If soup is provided, place the bowl and a soup spoon to the right of the beverage spoon on the plate.
Salad and bread and butter plates should be placed to the left of the forks. Place the butter plates on top of the forks, with the butter spreader across the plate.
The cup and saucer are placed above the spoons, with the handle to the right. Place wine or water glasses to the left of the coffee cup.
Formal Dinner Table Setting
Begin with an informal dinner or luncheon setting and build on it using the following ideas:
To the left of the coffee cup are white and red wine glasses, as well as water glasses.
The spoons for beverages, soup, and/or dessert are located to the right of the knife and can be brought to the table when soup or dessert is served.
Place a charger beneath the dinner dish to fancy it up even further.
