Have you ever been getting ready for a dinner party and when it comes time to set the table you had to stop and ask yourself, "What side does the fork go on?" and then just draw a blank? Well, we have definitely been there too, so we thought it would be great to teach you guys how to set a table properly!
Here is an example of how to set an semi-formal place setting:
(side note: I was really excited to have an excuse to use my favorite atomic dishes!)
Here are a few extra tips:
-Spacing is very important when setting your table. You want to make sure there is adequate space between place settings, so it is good to start by placing all of your plates down first and making sure they are all evenly spaced, and then add the cutlery after.
-A good way to remember the order of the cutlery is to place it in the order of it's use, starting from the outside and working in.
- For an extra special touch try experimenting with using a decorative napkin fold for your cloth napkins, or another option is to use a simple, yet pretty napkin ring.
-Pick something that compliments the style and color of your dish set and use it as a centerpiece for your table. Fresh flowers are always a good option!
Happy hosting, lovelies!
