Etiquette Tip of the Week: Napkin Apps

Another tip for Banquet Season: if there is an invocation or grace being said before a big banquet, wait until it is completed before you place your napkin in your lap. At a smaller occasion, such as a dinner party, if there is no invocation, place your napkin in your lap when your host does.  Same thing for an interview meal -- wait for your interviewer to place the napkin in his or her lap.
