How do You Set a Dinner Table?

Setting a dinner table can be somewhat meticulous. Center the dinner plate in front of one’s chair, and place your drinking glass at the right corner of the plate. Place a napkin in the center of the dinner plate, and add a small bread plate to the left corner of the dinner plate, placing a knife on it horizontally. Here’s where it gets tricky: Place three forks (salad fork, meal fork, and fish fork) on the left side of the dinner plate. Then put the dessert fork above the dinner plate facing west (right), and the soup spoon facing east (left). Then put the dinner knife at the right side of the plate, and place the butter knife right next to it. Now all you have to do is serve your guest and enjoy your meal!
