Bread Plate & Water Glass Placement?
As Savvy Niece is getting a little older, we think it's about time to start teaching her table etiquette. My mom started with us at a young age so we grew up fairly comfortable dining out, even at most exclusive restaurants. My friend taught me this really neat trick. Growing up, I had to memorize all the placements and which fork and knife to use. Also, if I absolutely don't remember, my parents told us to just sit back and watch others. Going back to the neat trick, the hand on left looks like a "B" for bread and the hand on right looks like a "D" for drink. It's not the end of the world if a gal uses the wrong bread plate but isn't it cool to know when the occasion calls for it?
