Etiquette and manners
A few things which cannot be managed with a fork are eaten with the fingers
Before leaving a party, thank your host for a good time.
When a dish is passed to you, help yourself and pass it on. Ask for a dish to be passed to you which is not right before you. Do not stand and reach for it.
*If you want to cough or sneeze, hold your napkin in front of your mouth and turn your head away from the table.
*A few things which cannot be managed with a fork are eaten with the fingers. Food should never get on to the palm and eating should be managed only with finger-tips.
*To have soup, lift the spoon pointed towards you, from the side of the bowl opposite to your mouth. Eat without making any noise.
*Do not use your own spoon in the sugar bowl. If no sugar spoon is available on the table, shake what you need into your cup or spoon.
*Spoons are used for soup, fruit, desserts and side dishes.
*Do not place your knife in your mouth. Knife is for cutting food.
*When you are not eating, do not rest elbows on the tale.
*When you are invited for dinner, wait for your host to tell you where to sit.
*Do not play with spoons or twirl you water glass.
*Do not share more than your share.
*Before leaving a party, thank your host for a good time.
