Place plates about one centimetre (1/2 inch) from the edge of the table. The distance between the centres of two place settings should be 60 to 80 centimetres (24 to 31 inches), so that you can fit a good number of guests at the table without anyone feeling cramped.
There should be no more than four pieces of silverware on the right; three on the left.
Always place the dessert silverware horizontally above the plate. Point the handle of a fork to the left, and the handle of a spoon to the right. If you're serving fresh fruit for dessert, place a dessert fork (instead of a spoon) at the top edge of the plate.
Place bread plates, along with a small butter knife, to the left of the setting if necessary.
Set glasses above the silverware on the right-hand side in the order in which they will be used.
White wine glasses should be positioned slightly further right and filled two-thirds full.
Red wine is generally served in large, wide goblets that taper slightly toward the top. Fill the glasses only a quarter-full so that the wine has room to breathe. #beacausetablesmaketheroom #godisinthedetails #interiorstylingindia #restorationhardware #architecturaldigest #india #rochebobois #interirordecor #monochromatic #greylove #gqmen #vogueindia #madfordesign #nycdesign #amazinginteriorstyle #interiorstylingindia #interiorstylingblog
Renaissance reflections: The new Arcade mirrors by Bower Studios remind of the arched windows seen in 16th century Italian architecture. Made to order in New York, the designers’ home town, the mirrors' frame is either crafted from white oak or walnut, while the glass can be clear, bronze, peach or plum. Sold only as a trio, the empty space between them forms simple columns. 📷 by @charlieschuck
Currently on the easel...
Took a minute to get back in the groove after the first week back...I’m loving the colors and it’s a great size to push the paint around the canvas and mark-make😉
