Spacing Individual Place Settings

When spacing individual place settings at the table, you don’t want your guests to be so close they bump elbows or spill food on one another, but you also don’t want them so far apart that conversation is difficult and turns into a shouting match.

A comfortable and appropriate distance between place settings is two feet from center of plate to center of plate.
