Whether you’re throwing an elaborate dinner party or just inviting a few friends over for a casual meal, setting a table can be a tricky endeavor. To properly set a table, you just have to know where to place the plates, silverware, and glasses, and you’ll be ready to say „bon appétit“ in no time. If you want to know how to set a table, just follow these steps.

Setting a Formal Dinner Table

1. Put down the placemat. Put a placemat in front of each of the chairs you’ve set up for your guests.
For a true formal dinner setting, you should have enough matching placemats for all of the guests, and the placemats should also match the tablecloth.

2. Place the napkin on the left side of the placemat. Fold the napkin into halves or fourths, depending on the napkin. The napkin should be ideally made of cloth. You can also fold your napkin to the left of the forks after you put them down.

3. Place the plate in the center of the placemat. It should cover just the right side of the napkin. If you want to have a fancy setting, use ceramic plates.

4. Place the dinner fork and salad fork on the napkin. The dinner fork should be very close to the plate without touching it, and the salad fork should be just a centimeter or so to the left of the dinner fork. The tines of the forks should be pointing away from the diner.

5. Place the knife to the right of the plate. The knife should be pointing away from the diner and the cutting edge should be facing the plate.

6. Place the teaspoon to the right of the knife. The teaspoon will be used for stirring coffee or tea at the end of the meal.

7. Place the soup spoon to the right of the teaspoon. Do this if the first course will be soup so that this will be the first utensil you pick up when you have your soup.

8. Place the wine glass on the top right corner of the placemat. To place an additional glass for water, just position it above and to the left of the drinking glass. The tip of the knife should be pointing to the water glass.

9. Add any additional plates and utensils that you may need. If your meal includes more courses or items, you may need to add the following additional plates and utensils:
