I hope this week’s topic has reminded you of some of those forgotten table manners and tips. To finish up I’ve pulled some “assorted table tips” from Emily Post’s Etiquette. Enjoy!
–Remember to make good use of that napkin in your lap! Wiping your fingers as necessary and blotting your lips every so often
–If you can’t seem to get a certain piece of food on your fork do NOT use your fingers to push it on to the tines. Use a piece of bread or your knife as the pusher.
–If you use bread to sop up gravy or sauce, make the sure the bread is on the end of your fork and use your fork to eat the soaked bread–not your hands/fingers!
–When you are finished eating, do not push your plate away from you. Also avoid saying things like “I’m stuffed” or “I’m done.”
