Manners Monday: Reaching for the Correct Bread Plate

We're beginning a fun, new little series here at The Classy Woman. Just in time for the holiday, I'll be delivering regular tips that will come in handy during the holidays and beyond.

Today's Holiday Etiquette Tip No.1 addresses the sometimes confusing bread place location. Have you ever wondered which one was yours and began using the wrong one in error? Avoid this table manner faux pas by using this quick and easy trick for remembering. 

As we near Thanksgiving and the upcoming Christmas holidays, with more opportunities for dinner parties and the like, it's essential to know proper table manners. If you don't spend much time dining formally, it's a great way to remember and the perfect way to teach your children also! 

I'd love to hear from you! Do you use this little trick to remember which bread plate is yours? 

Thanks for reading!



  1. Cute - never knew that one! We're a family of right-handers, so my mom taught us that we hold the knife of butter in our right hand, the bread in our left, so the bread plate would obviously be on the left. This is much more politically correct, in that I don't want to exclude the leftys!!

    1. Yes, this works for both lefties and those who are right-handed. :) Thanks for stopping by and sharing! XX


Thanks for stopping by, your comments make my day! I read every single one and will answer any questions you have. I hope you'll visit again soon! :)
