Being an Elegant Diner: Dessert Etiquette

If you’ll be attending a formal event where a meal will be served, it’s important to brush up on your dining etiquette. This includes learning what to do before, during, and after the meal—including what to do during dessert.

You can get some helpful advice for dessert etiquette by watching this video. As you will see, you can use both the spoon and fork or just use one. In between bites, your utensil or utensils should be placed carefully on your plate, never on the tablecloth. If coffee and tea are being served, only turn your cup right-side up if you want the beverage being offered. If any of your fellow guests ask you to pass anything, pass items to the right and pass them with the handle facing the person accepting them.
