We LOVE details here at Mask Events and correct table placement is one of our styling geniuses particular details when we walk into a styled venue. We love to fill the table up with our stunning centerpieces but we want your table set to not only look and feel beautiful but also to be useful to your guests.

We have simply mapped out a helpful guide to get your table placement set perfectly before you host any one of your next events.

When deciding on how to set your table, firstly think of the type of food that you will be serving. Will it be formal dining or informal dining? The difference being, between formal and informal ultimately depends on the number of cutlery pieces and glassware required on the table as well as the number of courses of food that is to be served.



Traditionally the forks are to be placed on the left of your dinner plate with the knives and spoons placed on the right with the blades facing towards the plate.

The general rule of table setting is that the utensils are placed in the order of use from the farthest from the dinner plate.



Some tables can be quite restricting, especially if we are filling it up with lavish florals and moody candles.
So, if space is one thing you are lacking at the table. Simply place the dessert cutlery directly above the dining plates with your glasses sitting to the right and the butter plate to the top left or place directly on top of your dining plate to add height.

Et Voila!
