1. The way you set your table is important, because it influences three things: It indicates the tone/feeling that people have about being together. It lets people know that you think they are important enough to put in extra effort for them. It influences the appearance of the food served.
2. Table setting (laying a table) or place setting refers to the way to set a table with tableware—such as eating utensils and for serving and eating. The arrangement for a single diner is called a place setting. It is also the layout in which the utensils and ornaments are positioned.
3. The three most common types of table settings are formal, casual, and basic. Each place setting includes the utensils and dinnerware pieces that would normally be used with the corresponding style of dining. For instance, a formal table setting will provide more utensils because there are more courses.
4. My idea of table setting spells out "simplicity". So when your ready to entertain at home, don't overlook an amazing table setting, it can make all the difference to your enjoyment of the meal and the overall mood of the gathering.
Lastly, always scoop food using the proper utensil, away from you. Always use serving utensils to serve yourself, not your personal silverware. Basically, that's all you need to know about passing etiquette at the dinner table. Bon appetit!
