Where does the soup bowl go in a place setting?
Similarly, you may ask, where does the soup spoon go in a place setting?
(e) Spoons: Spoons go to the right of the knife. In our illustration, soup is being served first, so the soup spoon goes to the far (outside) right of the dinner knife; the teaspoon or dessert spoon, which will be used last, goes to the left (inside) of the soup spoon, next to the dinner knife.
Furthermore, what is the proper place setting? Table Setting 101
- The first and basic rule to get you started is: Utensils are placed in the order of use; from the outside in.
- A second rule, with only a few exceptions, is: Forks go to the left of the plate, and knives and spoons go to the right.
- Finally, only set the table with utensils you will use.
Similarly, you may ask, where does the butter knife go in a place setting?
Knife blades should always face the plate, except for the butter knife which lays on top of the bread plate pointing down and left.
What side does the cup go on?
The forks go on the left, and the knives go on the right, with the sharp side of the knife pointed towards the plate. Water or wine glasses go just above the knife. For a more formal setting, the bread plate goes to the left of the fork.
