Etiquette Tip of The Week

Jul 22, 2013

Tip #1: Lemon is lovely in your iced, hot tea or other beverage. Lemon slices are garnishes — they are there to look pretty. Lemon wedges are to be squeezed. To keep a lemon wedge from squirting the person next to you, cup one hand over it while you squeeze, or poke it with the tines of your fork before you squeeze it.

Tip #2: Don’t be intimidated by a table full of silverware or flatware. Start with the utensils on the outside and work your way in towards the plate with each course. Your dessert fork and/or spoon will be above your dinner plate or served on the plate with the dessert.
