School Of Excellence: Table Etiquette Rules

Do avoid talking with food in your mouth.
Do take small bites and you'll find it's easier to answer questions or join in table talk.
Do wait until you have swallowed the food in your mouth before you take a sip of your beverage.
Do remember solids (food) are always on your left, liquids (beverages) are on your right.
Do carry food to your mouth with an inward, not an outward, curve of the fork or spoon.
Do look into, not over, the cup or glass when drinking.
Do butter only one bite of bread at a time & butter bread on the plate, never in midair.
Do remember your posture at the table. Sit up straight and keep your arms (including elbows) off the table. 
Meal

Don't, in eating, overload the fork. Don't, under any circumstances, put the knife in the mouth.
Don't spread your elbows when cutting meat. Keep them close to your sides when eating.
Don't reach across the table or across another person to get something, ask for it to be passed.
Don't gesture with your utensils in your hand.
Don't place used utensils on the table.
Cherry tomatoes are finger food except when they are served in a salad, and then they are cut with a fork and knife.
Butter served wrapped...open and use knife to push the square onto the bread and butter plate...fold wrapper butter side in and place on the edge of the bread and butter plate...never on the table cloth.

Reasons for different lengths of the stems of glassware: The longer stem of the wine glass prevents the hand from warming the wine and changing the temperature. The shorter stem of the brandy glass enables the hand to cup the bowl. 

Water glasses are filled two thirds full. Wine glasses are filled one half full.
If you are on the receiving end of a toast, do not drink to yourself. Just nod and smile your appreciation at the end of the remarks. Host toast his guest, takes a sip, then sits down. The guest (s) of honor returns the toast. 

RSVP on an invitation should be honored. Relax and enjoy the occasion, the meal and most of all the company!

Different Cultures have different table manners. Know where you are and who you are with. Don’t embarrass your spouse by doing the right things just at the wrong place.

Receive Jesus Christ today and go to church for spiritual fellowship.
