Table Manners: Dos and Don't s
1. Pull out chairs to seat the women when you are eating together.
2. Do not sit down before all the ladies are seated.
3. Pull your chair up and sit close to the table after sitting down.
4. It is customary to say grace before the meal begins in many Christian homes. Watch the host or hostess. If they bow their heads, join them.
5. When the hostess takes her napkin, open your napkin in half and lay it across your lap.
6. When eating with silverware, start from the outside pieces, then use the utensils for each successive course. The pieces closest to the plate are for dessert.
7. When having soup, move the spoon away from you to spoon out the soup. When a little remains, you may raise slightly the side of the bowl close to you to scoop up what is left.
8. Cut large pieces of food, such as steak or chops, into small pieces all at one time. (Some people cut one piece at a time and some people cut the whole portion into little pieces at one time)

You can choose whichever you like.
