How to choose the right tableware for your event and how to arrange them

How to set a table

Basically, the type of tableware you should pick will depend on the menu that will be offered, meaning that choosing a menu is a task you’ll need to work on first.

For an informal meal, fewer utensils are normally used and the serving dishes are placed on the table. In more formal events, eating utensils are arranged in the order and according to the manner in which the person will be using them – for example, a soup spoon and a salad fork, then the dinner fork and the dinner knife. The blades of the knives should always be turned toward the plate. Glasses are placed an inch or so above the knives, also in the order that they will be used: white wine, red wine, dessert wine, and water glass.
