You have responded to a request to RSVP and have accepted “with pleasure the kind” invitation, and have identified any meal restrictions. You have agreed to the dress request. Yes, dress as your host expects. Dress in season. Learn business dress suit etiquette, business personal grooming, and business etiquette to know. Meet conduct expectations. Plan your transportation. Get directions. Know the name of the venue, location, and time of the meeting. Engine search the location and map directions. Get a trip planner, bus, car, and ride-hailing application. Get a parking application. Learn the most favorable driving directions and parking instructions for each place to which you will invite someone. See if each parking pass can be validated by the venue. The discount for the special of the day can be overshadowed by the cost of parking or the valet. The Valet: the person who will park your car. Someone asked me about parking to which I replied, “Get a Valet key and let a valet park your car.  It is OK, really.” If you let this happen, place what you want to keep in the glove compartment or in the trunk. Avoid tempting an angel. Tip this person one dollar-five dollars and the posted rate on the way out. This person can expect that you have already mastered the art of palming. When a valet is not present, learn if the venue will validate the parking pass. Review the online menu. Get fast food coupons; (eat a little something before you get there.”) Now back to stations.

Eti - Q Test Professional & Graduate University Etiquette Business Dining DiningThings to Learn and Do

Get Etiquette Outclass the Competition baesoe.com
Harold Almon Etiquette Coach
Be at Ease School of Etiquette Austin
What to do.  Two Pre Steps: RSVP    Accept the ‘kind’ invitation and the Dress request.   Identify Meal restrictions.   Get Coupons.  In addition to the universal rule for eating in company, "Eat a little something  after you leave home.” And get directions.
Because the more you climb the corporate ladder the more dining protocols matter; there comes a time to transcend coffee shop habits and dining hall ways, and to display rules of etiquette for business dining. It is a ritual at which more than eating is done. On the way to the top there are stations and lines at which to stop.
Station 1. The Meeting Line
1.       Be punctual, arrive just in time, whatever this means in your community.       (Occasionally show up with a present.)
Station 2. Name Badge Placement
2. Know where to wear that name badge. Get a name badge holder.
Station 3. Something to Drink
3.       Know how to respond to an offer of an alcoholic drink. During daylight, order a “Virgin” drink over a “Non-Alcoholic one.” It is just easier to say. A juice can be a substitute for an alcoholic drink. Know “What can I get you,” and what it will cost.   Know what to do with that cocktail napkin.  
4.     Learn to hold a glass by the base.  Lift the glass with the right hand.  
 Avoid the crane; drink without poking someone in the eye; keep your elbows and arms down close to your sides while taking a drink from a glass. When not drinking, keep your right hand warm, dry, and free. Appear to be drinking less than the host, hostess, or person who is picking up the tap. At an evening event, make any drink Virgin (especially after your first.) (And wash your hands before you come to or stay at the table.)  
5 .       Learn to survive a business party: hold a napkin, glass, and plate in the left hand functionally. 
6.       Mock tail Introductions Do introductions correctly.
7.       Notes on Handshaking Shake hands the right way.  
8.       Mingle. Be good company. When someone gives you a business card, know what to do with it and what to have to give back. You can say, “I am temporarily out.   I can email you my resume or contact information."  
Station 4. The Line to the Table
9.       Learn who should get the first seat of honor at a table. Review the  Plan de table.
10.     Table Talk.    Do table introductions. Prepare for conversation. Talk about things other than work (unless it is the purpose for the meal). Talk, some unseen food can still be in your mouth. In business, keep the people at your table company. (Remember, for some, your conversation is the entertainment.)
At a family dinner, know an invocation acceptable to your host’s culture Someone may say, would you care to say a prayer?
Know what to do when someone stops to visit you at table.
Know how to interact with dining staff.

11.     Know the current USA menu number and order of courses. Know the rules of Menus and formatting Menu Cards. Learn what to do after reading that reusable menu. Notes to self, if a menu in not Prix Fixe, order something you know how to eat.
12.     Rules for Setting a Place Setting with Spoons: a napkin is to be placed center a place setting in absence of a first course. In a home, the spoon for coffee can be omitted from a place setting.
Maintain your cover: (place setting for one,) or establish one. A cover is to be free of technology.  
13.     Know when is a water glass to be at a table. Look for drinks to be served from the right (refreshing.)
14.     Setting an Advanced Formal Place Setting Know Rules for Using Flatware: the butter spreader and bread and butter plate are omitted.  Know which fork to use and when and how: name six.
15.     When seated at a table, know when is a napkin to be picked up and placed in your lap. 
16. Notes to Self (Sit up straight. Bring food to you)   (Avoid duck and chuck.) 
17.     Rules for Bread and Butter      Avoid bread until you receive a main course dish; remember bread is not a first course   Avoid leaving teeth marks  in bread that you are eating. 
18.      Using Glasses at Table  Know how many refills of water can you get. 
Station 5.  The Line to the Food
19.     Filling a plate take small amounts of food. (Practice eating in courses over eating in piles.) Look for food to be served from the (leaving) side.  Avoid taking too little, or too much, or more in visual calories than those dining around you. Try a little of everything unless restricted by religion, health, or culture.  
20.     Take a hand rest often.  You can rest your elbows on the table - in between courses. (Continental style, you can talk with a knife and fork in your hands. Keep them low.) Place your implements in the rest position for the style in which you are eating, anytime you want.
21.     Eat each meal in an accepted style.
Cut items, one or two pieces at a time.  (Yes, you may eat only one thing at a time.)  Sit up straight. Take small amounts of food.  Close your mouth around the edge of any fork placed in it. Chew each portion with your mouth closed, and saver each bite. Taste buds live and digestion begins there, and not the stomach – yes that’s right.  Avoid chewing with your mouth open. "It is disturbing and annoying.”  Avoid eating too little, too much, or too fast, or acting as if the meal is to be your last. Make as little noise as possible. Keep your hands on the table. Pace yourself. Eat each course in such a manner as to finish it along with the person to your right.  When at a loss as to how to eat a particular dish, you can ask." The lesson most likely will begin with a smile. In public, leave a little something of each course on your plate. 
22.     Avoid adding salt or pepper to food prior to tasting it.  When salt is requested, ensure both pepper and salt are passed.
23.      When cutting meat, slice with the grain, and cut across the grain, or fillet it. Avoid seconds in the same place, or in any home not your own.  
24.     Know of what an after dinner salad is to consist.                                  
25  Correcting the table is done before serving dessert. When it is time, “Take a break.”  Before temporarily leaving the table place flatware in the rest or finished position for the style in which you are eating; get up; place your napkin in your chair.
Know what to do when someone visits your table.  Between the salad course and dessert, visit Station Six: the bathroom. Make Checks and repairs. Know the answer to the question, “Where can I wash my hands.”

2. Soup can be served with croutons or oyster cocktail crackers. Each may be eaten by placing them in the vessel a few at a time and eating them with the soup. Saltine crackers are to be eaten separately from the soup. These crackers can be crumbled into chowder, but this is to be done only at a very informal meal.

3. Soup may be served with a relish tray. Items on it are considered finger foods, and are to be picked up with them. Each person can take up to two of each item and place them on a bread and butter plate.

4. Relish tray items may be placed on the edge of an underlying plate in the absence of a bread and butter plate. Olive pits could be taken out of the mouth with the thumb and the index finger and placed on the left edge of the plate.

5. The rest position for the spoon is handle in the four o’clock position. The finished position for a spoon on a plate is at four o’clock. The finished position for a spoon served with a bowl or cup is on the right side of the underlying plate.

6. Sherry may be served with a soup course. A sherry glass is to be set in formation to the right of the last wine glass. It can be filled half- full, without being lifted from the table. The glass is to be held by the stem in the right hand when drinking from it. It is to be set back in the position for it when the drink is rested or finished. Sherry could be omitted.

A stack of cocktail napkins can be held in the hands, pressed in the center and turned, and the stack will begin to spiral. This can be done with napkins while they are being pressed and turned in the center on a table.
Cocktail napkins can be folded  lengthwise and back down and used for dinner. This is more frugal than etiquette.  Dinner napkins are to be seventeen x seventeen inches square or larger and can be folded and used for cocktails. Each dinner napkin can be folded into a signature fold for your event. You may learn four napkin folds at minimum from Correct Creative Table Setting.
In a bar, a pre-dinner drink is considered given when set atop a cocktail napkin center the space for the person for whom it is intended.
A host/ hostess can hand a drink directly to a guest with a napkin, or without one, but why? Avoid wrapping a napkin around a drink glass for yourself or anyone else.
A napkin is considered at rest pending the return of the person drinking when it is set atop a glass.

The Line to Station Three - the Frugal Bar for Alcohol University Etiquette Provisioning - Cooking 101 Strategies

Get Etiquette Outclass the Competition baesoe.com
Harold Almon Etiquette Coach
Be at Ease School of Etiquette Austin

Normally the line to station three, the frugal bar, leads to an area set in the corner of a room used to serve something to drink during an event. This station is to follow station two: the Reception line.  
Etiquette Guide
In a polite home, station three is the living room; a sofa table is a bar. A drink is to be served in a real glass and with a napkin when the event is held indoors. In a private home, it can be served without that stirrer. In formal service it may be served from a bare tray.
The bar can be a sideboard credenza, a microwave table, a roll-in cart from Wally-Mar (get 2), or a raised table.  You may raise a table with pieces cut from PVC pipe.
Equipment for a Frugal Bar
For each bar have two to three bar spoons, bar towels, bottles, bottle stoppers, bottle washers, dishpans, (Turkey roasting pans), dish washing racks, funnels, glasses, glass dispensers, glass trays, jiggers, mixing glasses, pitchers, and strainers.



Fruit as Frugal Cocktail Food II Cooking 101 Strategies Professional & University Etiquette Provisioning

Bananas can be served alone whole, halved, or in quarters with or without the skin, or in slices. Bananas can be peeled and, sliced or not, stored in bags and frozen for use later. Peanut butter can be added to these on a bagel or bun, yum. Bananas can be separated into thirds lengthwise, just by pressing your finger in from the tip of one, and used as part of a topping.  (*1c 1c) Each can be coated with quick shell chocolate and rolled in nuts, and placed on wax paper in a refrigerator until it hardens. These can be eaten alone or cut up and placed in oatmeal or cereal. Everyone knows you can use these to make smoothies with berries. Bananas can be kept frozen separately, or covered in dark chocolate separately, and then frozen in packs. Bananas that are about to go soft can be added to a citrus salad.
Organic Berries can be full of fiber: listed as __#grams fiber per cup Acai, Blackberries (7.4gf), Blueberries (3.5gf), cranberries, and Raspberries (8gf).  
Organic strawberries are nice as cocktail foods. You can add to them whipped cream, cream, powdered sugar, syrup, and /or chocolate: outside and in or you may let them stand alone, and eat them by the stem.  You could serve strawberries with black pepper and vanilla. *8 c 1 cup 1 ¼ cup c 3.8gf.  You can store rinse strawberries in a bowl of water. Thanks Jeff. Get a small vegetable peeler to use to poke an opening in the back of berries so that dark chocolate can be inserted into them. You can dip them in quick shell chocolate, and place them on wax paper in the refrigerator until it hardens.
You could serve Mixed Berries or a mixed berry salad tossed with honey and lemon juice. Blue berries and strawberries cut in half make an awesome two-some on a plate. Informally, cut fruit and berries can be eaten and shared with toothpicks. Other fruits that can be served as cocktail food include
Red cherries, 
Citrus can be served as cocktail food: Citrus fruit is to be included in or before meals where possible. It can be squeezed in water or placed atop it.
Clementines, or
Grapefruit can be selected for morning, scored in quarters, and around the top, peeled, and eaten alone in wedges, or you can supreme grapefruit: cut the fruit of each segment. For lunch or at night, you can cut a grapefruit in half, cut the sides of each segment and top the fruit with brown sugar and almond flakes before setting it under a broiler for six minutes. This is more an appetizer than a cocktail food. Grapefruit can be used as a base for a great fruit salad. It is said grapefruit can help break down protein, eat what you can of the white part. Check with your doctor to see if this fruit and juice are to be avoided when taking medicine. 1c 1c.
Organic Lemons Organic Limes (You will like these best when you zest.)
Organic Nectarines and
Oranges can be cut or segmented and served.
1 citrus item counts as 1 cup. Organic is best for when you zest.
