THE EATING UTENSILS
In an elegant dinner, the eating utensils should be placed in the order of how they are intended to be used. This is the most important rule here but there are some others.

WATER, WHITE AND RED
The glassware should be on the top right corner of the place and for an elegant dinner, you should always have a glass for water, one for white wine and one for red wine.
