Hasn’t it even happened at your place when he table set up for a lunch, dinner or breakfast get-together looks exactly the same? It has happened with me so many times. And then I have to run across, hunting for the basic cutleries at the time of serving. It is extremely important to set your table according to the meal you are serving. A breakfast table set is way too different than a dinner table set-up and this not just applies to a restaurant but also at your house parties. A well prepared home and dinner table for your guest looks exquisite and makes them feel special and comfortable. Here is a simple way of setting up your table for a breakfast date with your friends or for a formal one with your colleagues.

How to Arrange the Dinner Table
Breakfast table set-up should be a simple set-up that doesn’t look too cluttered. Try to put all the essential cutlery and utensils on the table before you start serving, for you do not want your guest to struggle for their needs. If you are planning to serve fresh juice to the guests, keep it on the table only when you are ready to start for in countries like India where the temperature is smoking hot, juices won’t remain chill for long. It is also recommended to have coffee & tea condiments ready on the table if you are having a formal breakfast meeting. Everyone has a different liking for their tea/coffee and it’s better to let them prepare it as per their liking. Try and prepare a breakfast menu that’s liked by all in general (if you have a first-time guest over) and keep a few options (not to fancy necessarily) in case a person needs them. Do not forget to add some fresh flowers on the table to add that extra freshness to the ambiance.
