Mom’s Prom Dinner Guide

Moms love to give advice and direction. It just comes naturally! Prom may be the first fancy dinner that you attend and there are a few things that all Moms want their kids to know about how to conduct themselves. Follow Mom’s prom dinner guide and you can’t go wrong!

  • Be on time!
  • Don’t forget your manners, use words like please and thank you.
  • If you are wearing gloves, remove your gloves during dinner.
  • Examine the event tableware and use the proper silverware. Usually you start using the outside fork and work your way in.
  • Turn your salad fork upside down on the salad plate when you’re finished.
  • Turn your coffee cup upside down if you do not want any coffee.
  • Put a personalized napkin on your lap to save your dress or pants from an embarrassing spill!
  • Don’t put your napkin on the table until you are finished eating. Place your napkin on the back of your chair if you are leaving to use the restroom.
  • Gentlemen, open doors for the ladies. Carefully pull out a lady’s chair for her and then assist her in moving it forward, once she’s seated. Keep in mind, chair covers can be slippery.
  • Ladies, don’t forget to thank your date for dinner! Surprise him with gift favors for his generosity.
