Additional tips:

- The cup and saucer are only placed during the dessert course.

- The dinner knife's blade faces inward toward the dinner plate.

- To remember the bread plate goes on the left and the drink glasses go on the right, pinch your pointer finger and thumb together on both hands. Your left hand signs a "b" for bread, while your right hand signs a "d" for drinks.
