“The family is a big table and everyone around,” Laetitia Casta, French actress.
1) Table setting at home
The simplest to not be embarrassed at the last moment is to provide cardboards with the names, placed in front of the water glass (or pebbles, shells, ribbons).
- The hostess and her husband:
In France, if the table is of 6, 10, 14 or 18 guests, the hostess and her husband are placed at each end of the table, face to face. If the table is of 8, 12, 16 guests, the hostess shifts one place to respect the alternation Male / Female.
In England and the USA: the householders are at each end of the table.
- The guest of honor:
For a woman: to the right of the master of the house.
For a man: to the right of the hostess.
- Couples of equal social importance (couple X and Y):
Places of honor go to those who are invited for the first time, or to the oldest people, or the one whose function is the most important.
Couples are always separated except those who have been married for less than a year.
– Mr. X will be to the right of the hostess.
– Mr. Y will be on the left.
– Madame Y will be on the right of the master of the house.
– Ms. X will be on the left.
If there is a single person, the alternation will not be able to play. Do not point it out.
Likewise, if you are 13 at the table.
A religious personality always has the place to the right of the hostess.
If you are alone, do not put a single person in front of you. Avoid ambiguity.
A person commented this on my Quora account: “By matching talkers with listeners.” This is interesting too.
2) Table setting for business
The most important guest sits to the right of the host, the second to the left.
If two people invite, they sit at each end of the table, with the 3rd most important to his right.
