SETTING THE TABLE
First off, there are two different ways to properly set a table: formal and informal. Whether dining out at a restaurant, dining in another’s home, or hosting guests, there are things you should expect as well as know as it pertains to table settings. For starters, just in case you have never been properly informed, the forks, knives, and spoons are placed on the side in which you are required to hold them when cutting and eating. For proper etiquette this means the forks go on the left and the knife and spoons on the right.
