Dining Out Experience Workshop

To continue the cotillion experience we offer our 7th & 8th grade Dogwood Cotillion Students the opportunity to attend an optional dining workshop. We will start with a receiving line and continue through a formal 4-course dinner.

Points covered but not limited to:

  • Place cards
  • Table conversation
  • Excusing yourself from the table
  • When to rise at the table
  • Where to place your napkin when you’re finished dining
  • What to do when you dislike certain foods
  • How to eat difficult foods
  • Passing foods and when to “reach”
  • All those utensils and when to use them
  • What to do and say at the end of a meal
