Have you ever wondered what are the correct plates and what are the correct silverware that you need to put in a correct table? Well, hi! I'm Hazely Lopez from Hazely Academy of Refinement and Modeling and I'm here to talk to you about how to set up a table correctly. The first thing you want to take a look at in this picture is you want to see that we have the actual salad fork, the standard fork, the knife, the spoon and the plate all in front of you. The silverware basically go an inch from the table. And as you can see, the salad fork is on the outer side and the spoon is also on the outer side. That is a basically a trick that you'll have because that helps you indicate that those are the first utensils that you are going to be using to actually eat. Also you may want to take a look at, on top, the water glass and the red wine glass. If you're doing something a less, a little bit more basic, you may just want to put a drink on top of that and you may really not need to put the spoon. But these are just some tips. We can also do the formal one, which is a little more elaborate. Basically, it's really up to you. It's really going to be how you want to do it. If you want to do it basic, informal, or formal. So, after all, it says a lot about you when you set up a table correctly. I am Hazely Lopez from Hazely Academy of Refinement and Modeling and that is how you set up a table correctly.
