How to dispose your plates and set a beautiful table?

When it comes to formal table setting, plates and glassware, should be placed in a specific order depending on the order of the courses or the type of meals served. Choosing your plates is essential to receive your guests. There are several types of plates, and for traditional table setting, 4 plates are placed on the table at the beginning of the meal: the presentation plate, the soup/deep plate, the flat plate and the side plate. The other plates are placed for the rest of the meal and/or according to the chosen menus.

The main plates of tableware:

  • The presentation plate: this large plate serves as an underplate for the other plates, for formal tablescaping no more than 3 plates should be piled at the time (traditionally the soup plate should be placed on the traditional plates). It is usually removed when serving cheese. Note that a large service plate can be placed at the center of your table to hold a dish.

 

  • Soup plate: Also known as the deep plate, as its name suggests it usually accommodates soups, certain meats in sauces, ragouts, stews, gaspachos and generally all liquid culinary preparations. The deep plate exists since ancient times and has fed a number of generations. It has got deeper and deeper over time. At the time of serving, the bowl can be used as an alternative to the soup plate. Discover our selection of porcelain soup plates with different shapes and designs. For a restaurant style presentation, opt for soup plates with broad rims.
  • Flat plates: These plates are specially designed to accommodate the main course. Smaller plates can also be used to serve appetizers and hors d'oeuvres. Flat plates are available with many styles and shapes: round, square or rectangular flat plates. Some flat plates such as oval or leaf plates are commonly used to accommodate meals with similar shapes such as fish for example.
  • Side plate: Placed at the top left of the main plate for a forman french table setting, it is a small refined plate aimed to accommodate the bread, the butter knife is placed beside it.
  • The dessert plate: Used at the end of the meal, these small flat plates of about 20 cm diameter and are used to serve pastries, desserts, cakes and sometimes ice cream. Some even hold their small verrines for a touch of French elegance.
