Happy New Year! The new year always brings a powerful and energizing motivation to me and I am honestly soaking it all in right now. I’ve been loving setting new goals for 2018 and one of those is to host more dinner parties. Although I frequent the birthday party, baby shower and holiday soirée categories often, I’d like to host more sit-down dinner parties this year. This inspired me to create a modern guide of how to properly set a place setting.
The wonderful aspect of the modern and formal place setting, is that you can adapt it to whatever you may be serving. If won’t be needing a teaspoon, simply remove it and slide the soup spoon in. If you don’t need dessert silverware, then slide the place card down. You’re able to adjust this formal guide to your modern tastes and needs by simply eliminating the item and move everything in towards the plate. It will still look classic and formal but with a modern freshness. I hope you, too, can use this modern and formal place setting guide as you strive to create memories with those you love.
