1. Consider if the meal will be served plated, set on the table family style or will be buffet style.


This supports you in the planning journey with knowing what you are serving and how it will be served. This also helps with knowing what will be on the table.













2. Consider what items will be going on the table.


Remember to only put what your guests need for the meal. You want them to be comfortable. How many guests will be at the table? Will you have seats on the end of the table? How many tables will you need for your guests? Will this be a formal table setting? How formal and the menu will dictate what plates, flatware (forks, knives, spoons) and glassware you have on the table.

3. Consider what accessories you want included.


Is there a color scheme or theme that you would like to stick with? Will you be using chargers underneath your dinner plates? A charger ads depth to the place setting and all plated meals sit on top of this plate. Will there be centerpieces on the table? What style napkin fold will you use? The napkin can be used an additional accessory and can be folded in many different ways.
