Good manners always stand out. Etiquette is all about being polite and courteous all the time everywhere. You never take a break from good manners. Learning good manners has become extremely important in today’s day and age as we witness most children exhibiting bad behaviour in schools with teachers and peers, in restaurants and at social events in the name of swag.

Being polite at the dinner table will never go out of fashion. Good table manners are associated with professionalism and good manners in general help.you grow both personally and professionally. Boost your confidence and impress your bosses, colleagues and friends with these dining etiquette rules:

✅The meal officially begins when the host unfolds his napkin. This is a signal to the guest to do the same.

✅Start eating after the host eats his first bite.

✅Never cut your food into bites all at once. Cut only two or three bites at a time. 

✅ Sit straight with your ankles crossed. Do not cross your legs.

✅Rest your wrists or forearms on the table. Do not prop your elbows on the table.

✅ Do not create a scene at the dinner table if you find a foreign object in your food. Politely and discreetly tell your server to change the food.

✅Always pass the salt and pepper together if asked. They should remain on the table together throughout the meal.

✅Food served in a bowl is eaten with a spoon and food served in a plate is eaten with a fork.

✅After the meal is over, the host signals the end of the meal by placing his napkin on the table. The guest should follow and rest the napkin neatly on the table to the left of the dinner plate.

Happy Dining!
