What is the etiquette way to set a table?

Table Setting Etiquette

If you are cooking for your date at home, you want to make a good impression and show that you care. Simple things like setting the table can make that difference! From the left---little fork, big fork, plate, knife, spoon. The knife's sharp edge should be turned toward the plate; the napkin goes on the left under the forks. The glass goes above the spoon and knife. If you can remember the fork has four tines and the word 'left' is spelled with four letters, you will remember the fork goes on the left. If you have a salad plate, it goes above the fork.
