After being on the CJ and Debbie Ray Sail Away and enjoying the fine service in the dining room onboard, I appreciate the art of setting a beautiful table. Especially when a lot of my meals in Lafayette are eaten on the run with a plastic fork!  I saw a formal place setting diagram circulating on facebook a couple of days ago and it got me thinking... who really sets a table like that these days? A formal table service includes five wine glasses. As they say on ESPN, "Come on, man!" So I started searching for how to set a modern informal table. Found it on The Classy Woman website. Did you know that utensils are supposed to be placed one inch from edge of the table? Me, either! Take a look at the diagram here.
