What is Etiquette? A set of rules that govern the expectations of social and dining behavior in a workplace, group or society. Table manners are the rules of etiquette used while eating, which may also include the appropriate used of utensils. Displaying manners is an act of kindness and respect to your fellow human beings.
How you behave and conduct yourself in dinner. Reflects loudly the kind of personality you have, In dining etiquette we always use the “Magic Words” and these are:
The “ Magic Words “ “ Please “ and “ Thank You “ and “ You’re welcome” are called magic words because when they’re said, other people tend to give us positive attention and comply with our requests. In a sense, the “ magic words “ are the keys that unlock the whole treasure chest of respectful manners. It’s also vital to learn how to say “ no “ politely and to accept “ no “ from others. Thanks for thinking about it.
Dining Etiquette Meals can be used to observe your behavior in social settings to see how you conduct yourself, as a member of the Catholic Women’s League,
Napkin Place your napkin on lap after every-one has been seated. Fold your napkin in half with crease toward you. Use your napkin as necessary. Place your napkin on left side of plate or on your chair when temporarily leaving table. Leave napkin in lap until everyone is finished.
More Examples of Introductions Sis Tancing, I would like you to meet Sis Ampy Lim our CWL National President, Ampy this is Sis Tancing the Archdiocesan President of Tuguegarao. When introducing a stranger to your group, you should interrupt the group and welcome the new member or important guest.
The Handshake Firm but don’t crush anyone’s bones Hold for 3-4 seconds
The proper shake... Involves eye contact Is firm but painless Lasts about three seconds Takes only two or three pumps Starts and stops crisply Doesn't continue through the entire introduction Begin with your fingers together and your thumb up. Shake hands web to web, with a firm but not crushing grip. Keep your fingers together and your thumb up. Slide the web of your hand all the way to the web of the other person's hand. Otherwise, he or she ends up shaking hands with your fingers. Also, shaking web to web effectively prevents the other person, no matter how strong, from crunching your knuckles. Never offer only your fingertips, causing a weak, limp handshake. Never offer only your fingertips, causing a weak, limp handshake.
Names? If you can not remember, admit your lapse If you can remember other aspects about the person, talk about those first If other people have forgotten your name, don’t make them suffer. Tell them.
Etiquette Points Use “please” and “thank-you” and always be polite to the wait staff.
Smile! Smile- it is the ultimate gesture understood by all!
Managing Soup-How to eat Hold spoon with thumb across the top of the handle. Take soup spoon AWAY from you rather than toward you. To get the last bit of soup, tilt the bowl away from you - …the Tug boat goes out PLEASE, Do not blow
Words to the Wise If you spill something don’t make a big deal about it. If you decide to pass on food being offered, simply say “No Thanks”- no explanation is needed
When You Are Finished Lay your fork and knife (sharp side of knife inward). Leave plate where it is – don’t push it away. Used napkin goes next to your plate, not on top of the plate. Do not ask for a doggy bag.
◦ Do not push your plate away from you or stack them up; leave plates and glasses where they are in the place setting ◦ Any unused silverware is simply left on the table When You Have Finished
When You Arrive at the Table Do not place any bags, purses, sunglasses, cell phones, or briefcases on the table When everyone is seated, gently unfold your napkin and place it on your lap, folded in half with the fold towards your waist Keep utensils in the same order they appear on the table
Attire for other Occasions We should always be dressed properly and appropriately. We still project the CWL virtues and qualities of being Mary-like and modest. We must try to be the true Christian woman of integrity and simplicity. What we wear speaks loudly of our personality.
