Seating Etiquette

Whether at formal functions or house parties, you should always wait for the host to direct where to sit, also keep in mind to maintain a steady posture on the dining table by keeping your head up at the eye level, shoulders straight and your hands on the table. If you keep looking down at the plate with hunched shoulders and elbows spread, it will give an impression that you are feeling uncomfortable and are only interested in food.
