How to set the table?


Do you have an event at your house and don't know how to set the table? We show you how depending on the type of occasion: casual or formal.

  1. Only place the cutlery that will be used/needed at dinner - for example: if soup is not on the menu, do not place a spoon.
  2. Place the cutlery in the order that it will be used, starting from the outside.
  3. The fork sits on the left side of the plate and the knife on the right, always with the edge facing inward.
  4. Drinks are placed on the right side of the plate because they are always served and collected from the right.
  5. When dessert is to be served, the small spoon is placed on the top of the plate with the handle to the right, and if a small fork is also required it is positioned in the opposite direction.
