“I went to a fundraiser luncheon the other day.  Our table was way too crowded.  No one could tell where their place setting started and where their neighbors began.  I ended up without a water glass.  Can you give me some tips on how to decipher things the next time this happens?” – Beth

This happens all the time; you are seated at a round table that should seat 8 comfortably – with 10 people squeezed together like sardines; making it very difficult to determine exactly where your dining real estate begins, and ends.  You have a couple of options. I would suggest breaking the ice with your tablemates by saying you have a trick to help everyone figure out which drink or bread plate belongs to whom.  A fun way to do this is to have everyone at the table take both their left and right hands and make the “ok” sign by touching their pointer finger to their thumb.  The “ok” sign will resemble a lowercase ‘b’ on your left hand and a lowercase ‘d’ on your right…standing for ‘bread plate’ and ‘drink’.  Or, if you would like to be a little more sophisticated, you can use the initials ‘BMW’ describing not only a most popular car, but also ‘Bread, Meal, Water’.  Whichever method you choose, I’m sure your tablemates will be most appreciative of you sharing this tip.

Here is a picture of one of our placemats that helps to show the “b” and “d” placement of the bread plate and drink:

On another note… Do you know of anyone getting married this summer?  If so, we would love it if you would “pass along” the news about our app.  We have heard from brides who have found the app extremely helpful in keeping track of all of their wedding gifts and the many thank you notes to be written.  Here is the link:   Hop over to our app page for more information.
