I’m a stickler for etiquette, especially when it comes to table manners. Somehow though, the bread dish always gets me! How many times have you been at a dinner party and looked at the person next to you wondering ‘am I eating their bread?’ Happens to the best of us. Here’s a table setting guide from Emily Post to help you remember.

I will need to bookmark this! My trick to remembering where my bread is, is to make a lowercase b with left hand for bread (bc bread is on left) and lowercase d with my right hand for drink.
Such a great trick! I’ll have to remember that one.
