At some point in all of our lives we have sat down at a table that is set for a lovely meal and thought, “Which fork do I use?”
Easy peasy! Flatware is placed in the order of use; so that means start from the outside and work your way in. Secondly; Forks go to the left of the plate, and knives and spoons go to the right (with the sharp side of the knife pointed towards the plate). Last but not least, you set the table with flatware you will use. No soup; no soup spoon :).
