Collar Pin Safety Pin - So you've been invited to dinner or you have invited someone? First of all, you should reply promptly to the invitation. In the US, it's also called RSVP which stands for repondez sil vous plait or please respond. Traditionally, you should respond in the same way you receive the invitation. So if someone called you, call back. If someone actually wrote you a card or a letter, you should write back. At larger gatherings usually asked to respond by a certain date and you should definitely not miss that line. If nothing is indicated on invitation, respond in a timely manner. If you suffer from any food allergies, you should tell the hosts in advance, otherwise, they may prepare a meal and not be able to change and accommodate you on the spot. You should always keep your commitments. Not only does this reflect poorly in your character and people may consider you flaky, but the host and or hostess have gone to incredible lengths to accommodate you, they went grocery shopping, they made a meal plan, they invested in their liquor cabinet, in their wine selection, and they just made a huge effort, so just not showing up is extremely disrespectful. If you are invited to a dinner party, maybe a barbecue, or any other kind of informal arrangement, you should always offer to bring something. Only ask if you're actually prepared to bring what the host requests from you. Most hosts won't ask you to bring six bottles of champagne but if they do and you don't bring it, it makes it look extremely cheap. Also, be considerate and never create more work for the host. Always make sure to arrive on time which means you show up exactly the requested time or about 5 to 10 minutes later. Never show up earlier because everyone who has ever hosted a party knows that there's a lot of work to be done and if guests show up early and you're not done yet with your preparations, it's frustrating and it's just hard for you to manage with your time. So don't be that guy who shows up early. Once you arrive, you should always greet the host and a hostess personally. Ideally with a handshake or a hug depending on what culture you're in. Once the meal is over, they may be leftovers. If you're at someone's home, you never ask to bring anything home even if you brought the dessert or the salad, you just leave it there in its entirety. . Who pays the bill? If you're the restaurant, It can be a little tricky. In countries like Germany, if someone specifically invites you, it implies that they're going to pay for the meal. In the US, it's a little different because it only implies that your presence is welcomed, not that your bill will be paid for. Unless someone specifically says “let me buy you dinner”. Don't assume that someone else will pay for your meal. Finally, let's talk about the departure. It's always impolite to leave a party early or right after dinner because it implies that you're just there for the food and you're not interested in the company. At the same time, don't stay too late. Look for cues of the host, are they may be yawning because they're tired, already starting to clean up and doing the dishes, or staring at their watch many times, or maybe have they stopped serving drinks two hours ago, that's the case, it's time to leave now. If you enjoyed your evening, you should always return the favor and invite the host and hostess to you. It doesn't matter if you think you can't cook, you either come up with an idea or you invite them to a nice restaurant that you like and pick up the bill, it's just a way to show them that you appreciate that they invited you and that you like to hang out with them. #notsponsored #diningetiquette #tablemanners --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Want to stay updated?

7 Simple Etiquette Rules You Don't Know You're Breaking

Do you have good manners? They are as diverse as the people who show them. There are numerous etiquette rules, and many are only applicable in certain countries. Thus, Eskimo people rub noses when they greet each other, the Japanese always take their shoes off before entering a house, and Thai citizens will never show their shoe soles — it’s considered inappropriate. Nevertheless, there are some etiquette rules that should be followed no matter which nationality you are or where you live. For example, you shouldn't bring your pets (mostly dogs) with you everywhere you go. Other people won't enjoy your big clumsy dog. A small barking dog won't make them happy either. The same goes for when you're invited to a house party. Always ask if you can take your dog with you. Unfortunately, some of these important rules are frequently disregarded nowadays, so if you wanna learn more about them, watch the video!

Either hang it on your chair or a hook. You can sometimes find the latter on the side of or directly underneath the table. - If you're late to a group exercise class, don't barge your way through everyone toward your favorite spot. It's your fault that you’re late, so just take whatever space is available, and don't block the equipment. - After you’ve finished with weight machines, reset them to the minimum weight. This way, the next person who uses them won't injure themselves if they start doing exercises without looking. - There are 3 types of people in this world: those who arrive early, those who arrive on time, and those who arrive late. If you aren't the first type, you'll inevitably have to pass in front of people at the theatre, at the movies, in a concert hall, or in any other place that is equipped with seats. The only right way to do it is by facing the other people and not turning your back toward them. - If an invitation says “Regrets only,” you should only respond if you’re sure that you will NOT attend. Otherwise, the host will count on you being there. - “RSVP” (“respondez s'il vous plait,” which is French for “please respond”) means that you must write or call the host to confirm your presence at their event. You should do this within the requested period of time. - If you aren't sure which fork you should use for each dish, start with the one farthest from your plate. Then work your way toward your plate. - If you're in a small group of up to 4 people in a restaurant, wait until everyone has been served before you start to eat. If it's a business or formal meal, you can begin when the host asks you to do so. - Casual Attire — This can be anything from a T-shirt and jeans to a pair of shorts and a blouse. It's a good idea to find out if you're going to be inside or outside. You can also ask others what they’re going to wear. - In most companies, Casual Friday means that you can swap your pants or skirt for a pair of jeans and leave your tie at home. - Business Casual — Being neat is the answer here. Ditch clothing that is too tight or oversized. Just be stylish! - Formal Business — This is perfect for professionals who want to always look dashing and are aiming to climb the career ladder. A suit and dark dress shoes for men, and pumps, a skirt, and a blazer for women. - When standing in line at a coffee shop, don't talk on the phone. Especially when the barista has already started asking you questions. It's impolite to make everyone wait and listen to your conversation.

Table manners are actually something your parents taught you but are actually far more important as an adult. First of all, your table manners speak volumes about your refinement and it's often interpreted as a sign of character. It's not at all about being snobby or showing off but much rather show respect, your host and your dining partners will greatly appreciate your manners.

It's very important to keep in mind, proper table manners aways help you and never hurt you. The good thing is they can be learned and its never too late to do so.

So what are table manners?

I suggest you turn your cell phone ringer off when you enter someone else's home and put your phone in your pocket when you're with the guests. Don't leave your phone on the table because you are much more likely to pick it up and look at it which is impolite In the presence of other people.

If the table is all set, you don't just walk in and sit down. Wait to be seated or wait for the queue of the host, or if they sit, you can sit as well.

Ideally, want to sit up straight but comfortably, don't slouch, or cross your arms, or sit as you would on your couch while watching a football game.

Don't expect to sit next to your partner and follow the lead of the hosts. Traditionally, couples were always mixed up to sit with different people.

If there's a napkin on the plate or next to a plate, put it on your lap right away. If the host or hostess wants to say grace, accept the gesture for what it is and move along.

Two, let's take a look at the place setting. In the Western world, an informal place will always have at least a plate, a knife, and a fork. If dessert will be served, you'll find either a little fork or a spoon on the top side of the plate. If soup is served or anything else that requires a spoon, you will also have a spoon. On the top right of the plate, you'll likely find a water glass which is always filled and a wine glass which is empty, to begin with. Sometimes you also find beer glasses; if you prefer that, if that's what's served with a meal. If you see little plate with an extra knife on a top left to your plate, that's for bread and butter. When you're done with the course, you place the fork and a knife at a four to five o'clock angle that means you're done.

Three, now it's time to serve the food. Most informal dinners are family-style meaning there are bowls or platters where food is served from. For formal dinners, courses are usually plated but we talk about the intricacies of that in our formal dining etiquette video here.

With bowls and anything at the table, the cardinal rule is, don't reach over anybody else and don't touch them. To start, pass the bowl around the table from the left to the right when you get the bowl you hold it and you serve yourself then you pass it on to your neighbor on the right. Always use the serving utensils and never your silverware that's on your place setting. Of course, if the host or hostess has a different idea, go with what they do.

Four, finally it's time to eat. You should only start eating when everyone else has been served and a host or hostess starts to take their fork and take the lead. It is very impolite and sometimes even rude to just dig into your plate of food while the others are still empty-handed.
