This preview shows page 1 - 2 out of 2 pages.

Good manners are NOT about putting on airs. They are about making people feel at ease! Wait until the host/hostess places napkin on lap before you do. In restaurant, napkin on lap immediately. Dinner party guests wait until the host/hostess is served and picks up fork to begin. In restaurant or banquet, never begin eating any course until everyone has been served, unless prompted by the host/hostess to do so. Napkin: do not shake it out, do not tuck it into shirt collar or belt/wasteband. Open end of napkin fold facing away from you. When leaving table during meal, napkin is placed on seat. When meal has ended, napkins are folded casually and placed to left of plate, never on the plate. Salt & pepper are always passed as a set. When passing food, generally, offer to person on your left before serving self, then pass to the right (counter clockwise). Silverware is set in order of its use; bread (b = left) & drink (d = right).
