One of the best things about the holidays is the chance for a dining experience with family and friends. Whether it be eating out at a fancy restaurant with clients or setting up a decorative table scape for my family at home I have one go-to trick for navigating complicated tableware because I can never seem to remember which side my bread plate goes on or which water glass is mine at a crowded table.
I put my thumb and forefingers together. The left hand will always form a “b” and the right hand will always form a “d”- perfect reminders for “bread” and “drink”. That way I know my bread plate is on the left and my drink is on the right. For those of you who may also suffer from Pretty Woman table setting phobia, here is a helpful guide from our friends at Liberty Tabletop.
