The Art of Table Setting – Western

The practice of dictating the precise arrangement of tableware has varied across cultures and historical periods. The evolution of formal dining is said to begin at the medieval era, where dining became a sign of social status. These elaborate elements on the layout of the banquet table served as expressions to reflect a culture, the social status, the theme of the occasion and the type of food served. Today, the practice has evolved to become an art and there are exhibitions held to display table settings around the world.
