Dinner Etiquette Guidelines
Begin With Utensils on the Outside and Work Towards the Plate
Bread & Butter Plate:
Use the butter knife to cute a small pat of butter, which you put on the plate. Break off a piece of the roll, butter one piece at a time. If a butter knife is used, place used knife across the edge of the plate until needed again.
Salad Plate or Bowl:
Lave the salad fork on one side of your salad plate when you are finished.
Unfold and place on your lap when you are seated. Leave it there until you stand up and leave the table.
Use only for salad.
May be used for dinner and salad if you choose.
Spoon soup away from yourself to the far edge of the bowl. Sip from the side of the spoon. Never pick up the bowl or blow on the soup! Tilt the bowl away from you to get the last spoonfuls. Crackers should be eaten as crackers and not crunched up and added to soup.
Cut a few small pieces of meat at a time. Never lick your knife! When not in use, place used knife across the edge of the plate until needed again.
Share your life, and find the finest joy man can known. Do not be stingy with your heart. Get out of yourself into the lives of others, and new life will flow into you – share and share alike.
Joseph Fort Newton
The spirit of hospitality aims to make guests feel special and loved.
The model for entertaining is found in the slick pages of women’s magazines with their appealing pictures of foods and rooms. The model for hospitality is found in the Word of God.
Hospitality is missed if we see it only in terms of large houses and full sets of china. You can live in a two-room apartment, a college dorm, or a small house with a mishmash of dishes from a secondhand store, and still offer warmth and availability to others. Hospitality is created with the welcome of open arms and open heart, not with wealth.
