      I get nervous seeing elaborate table settings like this. My usual coping mechanism is to apologise to the table, in good humour, for my appalling table manners. Dining Etiquette 101 Infographic

      Great cheat sheet on Dining Etiquette 101...always a good reminder. Best trick we've ever learned - Fancy table setting and don't know which bread plate and which water is yours? Put your hands in your lap, touch your thumbs to your middle fingers and extend your index fingers to form a "b" with your left hand and a "d" with your right. Voila! b = bread. d = drink. You're welcome! ;)

    • Meredith Moore

      A few basic rules of dining etiquette..personally I think every child should have to complete a mandatory semester long etiquette class once they are old enough to understand & remember what they learn (but before that age when things like etiquette, manners, & respect are ignored & are therefore NEVER learned) Just having basic good manners & some knowledge of how to present/conduct oneself properly in common situations like job interviews gives you a big advantage over those with no manners
