    A few tips to help you polish your dining etiquette

    1. The host and hostess should always be the last ones to be served at a dinner party.
    2. Large napkins should be folded in half before being placed on the lap.
    After you finish eating, your napkin should be placed on the left side of
    your plate. If the plates have been cleared, place it in the centre - where your plate had been placed.

    A child should remain standing till all adults have been seated at the dining table.

    If salad is served as a main dish, use your dinner fork to eat it. If not, use your salad fork.

    1. If dining out, the person who issued the invitation or suggested they dine out should pay the bill.
    2. If you need to blow your nose, excuse yourself from the dining table. Never ever use your table napkin as a handkerchief.
    3. Food should be passed round the clock in an anti clock wise direction. It should be passed from left to right.
    4. You can share food with others at the table, but is more appropriate to use little plates and clean spoons and forks to divide the shared food.
    5. If you don't want to swallow the food in your mouth, push the food forward with your tongue and onto your fork or spoon, and place it on your plate again.
    6. Always swallow your mouthful before taking a sip of your drink.
    7. After using a finger bowl, place it at the upper left side of the place setting.
    Dining etiquette always makes you a more pleasant person to share the table with.

    Hi Roopa,
    Very good tips. Its always better to follow thses tips at home, so that we can conduct ourselves better, while eating out or visiting relatives.

    Yes Sravanti...if we start practising at home, we may not end up making a fool of ourselves in the public.

    Roopa.
