Creating formal dining room tables is not a difficult job for us as long as we know and run some guidance in terms of formal dinner table settings. As long as we have a dining table that is presentable, then get an impression on the formal dining table is not something to be feared.
Here are some guidelines that we can follow:
(1) Size table – the size of the table that is used to obtain a formal impression is large and long table. But do not have to worry if we do not have such of dining table like the criteria mentioned – just using our usual dining table. Next, place the table right in the middle of the room so that we could accommodate more guests.
(2) Setting the cutlery – before we begin, please note that each country and culture has a different way of doing a formal dinner table settings. But, we do not need to think too much about it as long as we put all cutleries neatly and beautifully. Place the plates on the table and do not forget to put the forks, spoons, knives that have been wrapped neatly with a napkin on both sides or on top of the plate.
(3) Setting the table – put the glass on the left side of the plate. Place two pieces of glass to the plate – the first glass used for drinking water and the second glasses used for wine. Polish our table decorations by putting a vase of flowers in the middle of the table.
Relax and be a gracious host is more important than preparing to the smallest detail about the formal dining room tables. As long as we make the table look neat, beautiful to look at, and are able to invite the appetite of guests, our guests will certainly appreciate what we have done.
