How To Set Your Table
Breakfast

A luncheon plate is used for eggs or any other main course. The cereal bowl goes on the luncheon plate. Only at breakfast is it good form to have the cup and saucer on the table at the beginning of the meal.

Breakfast Setting

  • A. Luncheon plate
  • B. Cereal bowl
  • C. Bread-and-butter plate with butter knife
  • D. Cup and saucer with teaspoon
  • E. Water glass
  • F. Juice glass
  • G. Fork
  • H. Knife
  • I. Teaspoon
  • J. Napkin
Luncheon

The plate for a first course, if any, is placed on top of the luncheon plate. To serve soup, set the soup bowl and a liner plate on top of the luncheon plate and have a soup spoon already in place at the right of the teaspoon. A fork for the first course would be placed to the left of the luncheon fork. Salad can be served with the main course on the luncheon plate.

If there is no first course, the napkin is usually placed at the center of the dinner plate. The salad plate is then set to the left of the forks. The teaspoon in the place setting is used for dessert or a dessert fork is carried in with that course.

Formal Dinner

Utensils for the first course and a service plate on which it is set are part of a formal place setting. When the service plate is removed with the first course dishes, it is replaced with a dinner plate. Silverware for dessert can be set in advance or brought in with that course.
