Table Etiquette Tips

The following are helpful table etiquette tips

* Hold cutlery properly; don’t wave it around. Once you pick up a piece of silverware, it should never touch the table again.

* Place the napkin over your lap as soon as you are seated. When you leave, do not fold the napkin. Lay it loosely to the left of your plate.

* Never chew with your mouth open or talk with your mouth full of food.

* Sit up straight; keep elbows off the table. If you have nay doubt about your hands, put them in your lap.

* Put butter on your plate. Break off one bite-sized piece of bread at a time, buttering each piece just before you eat it.

* Don’t pick your teeth or put lipstick at the table.

* Keep everything off the table unless it is part of the meal. This includes eyeglasses, hats, gloves, briefcases and mobile phones.
