Setting Your Holiday Table

Posted on Updated on

If you’re hosting the upcoming holiday dinner, you’ll want to be sure everything is just right. Setting the dining table will be a snap with these pictured diagrams for you to follow.

Try to plan your table setting to match your menu. When bread and butter are served, add a butter plate to the table. Use separate salad plates if serving your main course with gravy.

For a formal setting, everything should be geometrically spaced. The silverware placement is guided by the menu, starting from the outside, in. A tablecloth should be used.

An informal setting is used for a basic three course meal. Again, the silverware placement is guided by the menu, starting from the outside, in. A tablecloth may or may not be used.

Informal Table Setting

TIPS:
If using candles on your table, use unscented. You don’t want the aromas of your delicious dinner to be mixed with a blueberry scented candle.
If using a centerpiece, be sure it’s not too high that your guests can’t socialize.
If using a table linen, be sure you have time to press it.
Most importantly, remember to relax and enjoy yourself. Making your guests feel comfortable is something they will remember.
