Via Gab comes this very useful illustration of a full table setting. Click the image for a larger view.
I don't know anyone who uses full place settings any longer - they're really a relic of pre-World War II fine dining - but the diagram is still useful with less extensive settings. Simply leave out the items one lacks, and arrange what one has in the order show.
So, if you're ever in doubt about how to lay the table, or in which order to use the cutlery at one's place, now you know.
