How To Set a Formal Dinner Table

Happy Monday, friends! I hope everyone had a great weekend. I spent a lovely weekend at home on the lake with my family and am excited to kick off a great week. I have lots of exciting new projects in the work that I can’t wait to share soon. In the meantime, I’m loving this guide to setting a formal dinner table from Mrs. Lilien. While I love casual entertaining, there’s part of me that just can’t enough of fancy wear-your-prettiest-dress-and-pearls dinner parties. Of course, dicephering your dessert spoons from your salad forks can be a tad confusing so Mrs. Lilien has the complete breakdown to help you set the perfect table.

Isn’t this great? Keep it in your back pocket for your next dinner party or holiday celebration and wow your guests.

A really useful guide to have, I always forget which way round the dessert fork and spoon go. So thanks a lot! Love Linda x

Where does the water glass go?

Here Mrs. Lilien is showing bubbly where the water goblet would typically go. You can mix up the beverages offered based on the crowd and the meal you’re serving. She has a great breakdown here on her blog – http://blog.mrslilien.com/mrs-lilien-styling-house-blog/2011/6/2/mrs-liliens-proper-table-setting-for-tradhome.html
