Table Manners

As meals are social events, it is essential to practice proper manners. This includes setting the table, serving yourself and others, using utensils, and cleaning up. It also can mean dealing with those  unexpected dining difficulties, such as specific allergies, unruley children, or guests that overwear their stay. As with any social situation, consideration for those around you can make a world of difference to the outcome.
