Table Setting Tips

Proper Placement

As a yacht stewardess, you will have to set the table for the guests for various meals and occasions. However, the way you set the table depends on the meal being served or how formal the service will be. This is very important to keep in mind. Here are a few helpful things to remember when setting a table on board a yacht:

Since each yacht has its own preferred style of service, make sure to consult with your senior or chief steward/ess and have them double check your work! Take note of how many courses to expect, what's being served, and the formality of the meal. Also consult the chef or chief steward/ess if there are any other considerations to be made such as theme nights, specialty food accessories, number of guests, size of the table, etc. Make sure you have the corresponding items in the right position on the table. Refer to the picture above for a guide to the various settings.

Get a Little Creative

Fold the napkins in a unique way. Create a floral arrangement to set the mood. If you're working during a holiday, add a touch of it to the table. Match your creativity to the guests' preferences. Check out pinterest for more inspiration!
