Setting a Table and David the Gnome

It's been established time and time again that I'm very Type A, well when I came across this handy diagram for place settings I honestly got all tingly inside! My parents sent me to etiquette classes when I was younger, yet I still admit I can get flustered by all silverware, glasses and plates at formal dinners. I plan on teaching Nia how to properly set a table, and I'll hold onto this handy tool:

Funny enough, it came from Paula Deen's website (the key is on her site), and I honestly don't think of her as a formal dining kind of person. I mean, she usually just eats out the pot on her show and goes around making sinful things like fried macaroni and cheese bites wrapped in bacon!

This place setting tool also reminded me of a book me and my friends used to read in high school in our library which had etiquette for everything. I don't know who in my circle of friends came across this book, but we used to read it when we were bored during study hall and laugh at the "rules" such as eating asparagus with your fingers. Who knew? This was the same group of friends who came across the book Gnomes in our library, and we spent a semester obsessed with it!
