Table setting for a elegant dinner

1 Set your dinner plate in the center.
2 Place a folded napkin on top of the plate.
3 The dinner fork goes to the left of the plate.
4 The salad fork goes to the left of the dinner fork.
5 Place a salad plate to the left of the forks. 
6 To the right of the dinner plate, set your dinner knife, blade edge facing the plate.
7 The dinner spoon goes directly to the right of the knife.
8 Place your soup spoon to the right of the dinner spoon.
9 A small bread plate should be placed at the 11 o'clock position, with respect to the dinner plate.
10 Position a small butter knife diagonally across the bread plate.
11 At the one o'clock position (again with respect to the dinner plate), set a water goblet or tumbler. 
12 The wine glass should be placed just in front and to the right of the water glass.
