Table dressing ideas
How to set a table
Place a tablecloth down first. Use one that reflects the occasion and try to match it to your dinnerware if you can.
Placemats come next. Lay one down at each place setting.
3. Serving plate
On top of the placemat, add a large dinner plate or charger.
Once these have been laid, the cutlery can be set. Cutlery should be arranged based on use, from the outside in, with forks being on the left of the plate and knives and spoons on the right.
You can now add a napkin, placed either in the centre of the plate or next to the fork.
If you use any glassware, place it above the knives and spoons on the right.
