As is well known, the eye always eats. That is why we should not only care about the taste and quality of our daily food, but also about the right table decoration when dining. Only when the food is eaten in peace and a pleasant atmosphere can it achieve its healthy and energizing effect for body and soul. Especially on special occasions like birthdays, weddings, Christmas or New Year, the right table decoration plays an important role for the wellbeing of your guests and family.
Place the table sounds quite simple. However, if you are looking for special occasions that you really value, you should follow some important rules as well as creativity and time. They will certainly assist you in arranging the festive table.
Table decoration lovingly
We have listed five of them for you:
- Always ensure sufficient free space on and at the table
- Place a placard, which remains in its place until the last turn and serves as a placeholder
- Arrange the cutlery according to the order of the menus next to the plate – from the outside to the inside
- Always place the glasses above the knives – the order of use also starts from the right to the left
- Position the napkins correctly – in the beginning on the top plate and then on the lap or left on the bread plate
Extra tip: The thumb rule
In order to make everything optically and ergonomically a bit more accurate, you should always leave a gap between the cutlery and the edge of the table as well as between the plate and the edge.
