How to set a formal table

Here is how to set up a formal table in a really cool way:

Bread plate:  The Butter knife handle faces right for easy reach.

Dessert fork and spoon: Tuck in dessert utensils above the plate — fork handle left and the spoon handle right.

Glasses: Water is placed above knives for a a very easy access . If you’re serving both red and white wine, set glasses right to left in the order used : White wine for the first course on the outside, then red next for your entree.

Utensils: The Forks  should be kept on the left side ; knives (blades in) and spoons on the right side. Everything is placed from the outside in based on course order — for instance, set for soup, salad and then entree.
