Default Muggle Studies Lesson #1: Dinner Etiquette


~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~



~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Welcome to the first Muggle Studies lesson!

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

~* Attire *~

* Cocktail or Semi-Formal
Please fill free to post your Characters dress in this forum.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

~* Entrance *~

As you approach the Muggle Studies classroom, you notice that the door is closed, which is different than usual. When you reach for the door handle, a deep British accent comes from the door, "Please state your full name and your House..."

After you share your name and house, the door will swing open to the ornate classroom. As usual, Professor Cerulean has decorated the classroom using charms to match the theme of the lesson. Once you have rped yourself introducing yourself to the door wait for the door to formally announce you before you enter the room. (I will come in throughout the day and act as the announcer)

Before entering, please wait for the door to introduce you properly. Then you may walk into the room.

~* Decorations *~

The room is extravagant! The ceiling is sparkling under a tool puff. The room is divided into four sections, one for each of the houses. Each section is easy to spot because it is color coordinated to match each house. Above each section, there are Chinese Lanterns floating above the section in shades of the house's color. So the Slytherin section has shades of green lanterns floating above the round tables. Ravenclaw has shades of blue lanterns floating above the round tables. Gryffindor has shades of red lanterns floating above the round tables. And Hufflepuff has shades of yellow lanterns floating above the round tables.

SPOILER!!: The ceiling




SPOILER!!: Chinese Lanterns Floating over each section




Each section contains a number of round tables that have been decorated using the House Colors as well. The tables have a simple black table cloth. The napkins and plates color coordinate with the lanterns floating above them. The tables have already been set in a formal setting. The centerpieces are very simple and elegant. Each centerpiece has three cylinder vases of varying sizes filled with water that is dyed to match the House color. A simple candle floats in each vase.

SPOILER!!: Table Settings




~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

~* Instructions/OOC *~

Please read the notes under the Entrance section. Once you have rped yourself introducing yourself to the door wait for the door to formally announce you before you enter the room. (I will come in throughout the day and act as the announcer) Then find a seat wherever you would like. Professor Cerulean will be here shortly. Please keep talking to a minimum and remember that she is watching at all times...

The class will officially start in about six or so hours. See you then!

Aurora unfolded her napkin and placed it carefully on her lap. Honestly, this was just like the parties at home! Only with people she actually liked. She raised her hand, "Professor... should they be passed clockwise?" she asked, unsure if that was right or if it was the other way... but she could be right...

Minerva took her napkin and put it on her lap. She looked at the menu, wow so much food. She hoped she could eat everything. Then she raised her hand "Professor I think it is clock wise that we pass things at a table."

Angelina took her napkin and placed it on her lap nicely. Once she recived a menu she looked over it in wonder what there will be. After reading everything she placed the menu down and listen to the Professor. To answer the question she raised her hand and said, "Would you pass it clockwise Professor, so to the left?" She knew a little about proper dinning, which was helping her some what.

As the food came into the classroom, it immediately released a delicious aroma that quickly spread through the whole room. Eino watched as they floated around, anxiously waiting to see what could be the source of the smell. He didn't want to become too distracted, though, so he quickly turned his attention back to the professor. There was a proper way to distribute the food? Eino raised his hand. "Perhaps it would be considerate to begin with the person who is most hungry first, and continue in a most-hungry to least-hungry order, until the person who is the least hungry is served." Any other way would be preposterously and rudely incorrect! He lowered his hand and then folded both of his hands neatly on his lap. He had always heard that resting your elbows on a table was bad, so he was trying to prevent that.

With a flick of her wand menus dropped from the ceiling and landed in their laps. "We are going to begin our seven course meal. As we go along, I'll introduce you to some different rules of etiquette when eating. Feel free to ask any questions that you think of. "

"Please glance over the menu..."she said excitedly and then once she felt like they had all had ample time to preview the menu, she flicked her wand and the menus flew away. "Okay let's get things started..."

She flicked her wand in a circular motion and the appetizer flew into the room and levitated above each of the tables. "Can anyone tell me what the proper direction we should pass the tray of brushetta around the table is?"

SPOILER!!: Brushetta




OOC: Remember to raise your hand before you answer. .And as always remember she is always watching you! But remember she doesn't handle rudeness towards Muggle ways very well, so you might want to keep those prejudices to yourself unless you want face the consequences! Remember we haven't started eating yet....We will soon though!


Elise beamed. Of course she was right! Nodding, she pulled the napkin out of its folds and placed it on her lap, like she was told to. Excited, Elise took the menu to examine. Yum! Everything seemed delicious.

Now, to figure out which way to pass the food. Elise remembered something her mother said about only giving with the right hand, because some Muggles were superstitious. Raising her hand, she made sure it didn't hit anything.

"Is it left to right, Professor?"
she asked. Cause giving that way just makes sense. Lowering her hand, she relaxed, never letting her posture go slack.

LuLu glanced at the menu.. tomatos she didn't love tomatos but it wouldn't kill her to try again.. right? She raised her hand up again "Clockwise, Proffeser" her hand went down and she had another peek at the menu, she'd eat the rest.. tomatos she was dreading though but if you think about who was fond of tomatos?

While placing the napkin on her lap, Nora kept thinking of an answer to the professor's question, although everything was getting way too fancy, even though she had good manners and yadda yadda yadda. "Maybe starting with the oldest?" She suggested with a hand in the air. Well, that would be polite, at least. If not, she would be happy to grab it first.

Laura looked at the Professor, seriously she wasn't going to eat a seven course meal no way, she smiled as she raised her hadns and answered the next question. "Professor your suppost to throw the food across the table to the person opposite you." Yeah well Laura did that sometimes expecially when it was her sister there.

SPOILER!!: Brushetta




Lewis quickly went to copy the list of courses onto his piece of parchment, this time WITHOUT dropping any of his cutlery. Holding his quill between his teeth to have both of his hands, he reached out for his napkin, and carefully placed it on his lap. Okay, this wasn't so difficult up until now.

Wow. That menu looked amazing. He briefly wondered WHO had cooked all of that. Probably the house elf. Lewis glanced at the professor for a moment, trying to assess if maybe she was able to cook all this. Huh. Maybe, maybe not. Though, it had probably been the house elves.

Aw, goodbye menu. Lewis really wished they would have been allowed to keep them. There were some great ideas on them. But there was the first course already. Brushetta. "Profesha, I fink it's fro' left to righ'." Okay, maybe he should have taken his quill out of his mouth first. Raising his hand again after putting the quill in his lap, he repeated his answer again. "I think it's from left to right, Professor." There. Could they eat now? Please?

Hope is the only thing stronger than fear.

Jezzabelle read over the menu as quickly as possible then placed her napkin on her lap as the menu went away. It all sounded so delicious and she couldn't wait to eat. A tray of the appetizer was floating near her and it looked amazing. She raised her hand, "From left to right." Oh how she hoped she wasn't last in getting something to eat.

Amelia unfolded her napkin and placed it on her lap. She was enjoying this class because she didn't know a lot of these things about Muggles. She just assumed some of their etiquette was the same as the Wizarding people's. She raised her hand now. "Clockwise?" A lot of things were done that way as opposed to counter-clockwise. So it was a fair assumption to make.

Yum...Auggie's eyes scanned the menu quickly and before he had a second to even crave that steak that would come towards the end of the meal, the brushetta arrived. Stomach growling, the Gryffindor resisted reaching out and taking one and instead turned his head to listen to the Professor.

He raised his hand after placing his napkin in his lap, "Professor don't you take one for yourself and then pass the plate to your left?" You needed to take one for yourself first right, or else everyone would just pass it and no one would get any.

Kimalia had already been sitting, quite professionally she might add like the rest of her housemates she hoped. Her right leg crossed over her left under the table with her hands closed together resting on the table making sure her elbows were off. This was Etiquette after all, first she listened before participating and now it was her turn to participate.. at least when she was allowed to speak after having her hand raised.

"To the left, Professor" Just like that muggle song.."Until it circles back to the first giver."

After placing his napkin on his lap Justin looked over the menu....Oh my what a treat! So many of his favourite items and dishes. This class would be a nice reminder of how dinner was served at home. And luckily his mother had raised him with proper manners.

Kurumi had been a little too overwhelmed by the table setting diagram and glancing between it and her own table setting, trying to match everything up, to be able to answer the next series of questions. Seven courses? That certainly was a lot and Kurumi knew she wouldn't be able to eat it all...and that would be rude, right? What if something that was served this evening was something she was allergic to? Then what was she supposed to do?! Was it proper etiquette to eat it without a fuss, or was there a proper way to turn down a certain dish?

Kurumi glanced nervously at her napkin and picked it up, unfolding it and resting it on her lap. Glancing up at the levitating plate above her table. She looked back at their table, noticing its rounded shape and became even more confused by her question. "Professor," Kurumi said with her hand raised. "Where do we begin passing from? Usually, when the tables are square there is someone sitting at the head of the table who gets dishes serves first...but we are at round ones." Kurumi knew where the head of the table was in accordance to the customs she grew up with, but this was already so different from everything she knew. She couldn't really pass from left to right...or right to left...whichever way it was without knowing where everything started.

At least she was sitting now. No need to worry about tumbling and twisting her ankle in her heels.

Which Way?? Eva thought. She knew she was bad at this but not this bad!! But seriously which way! She didn't think there was these types of questions in Muggle Studies. Putting up her hand she responded saying; "Professor, is it clockwise? Or is it the person who's most hungry eats it all?"

Sky nearly smacked herself for forgetting to place her napkin in her lap. Thank goodness her mother wasn't here, she would've been so disappointed! She picked up her napkin, unfolded it and placed it in her lap before raising her hand to answer. "You pass the food clockwise, making sure the ladies are served first," she said, smirking slightly at the guys. At least that's how her family had always done it…

And now the smell of the brushetta was making Sky hungry…

Presley actually was really hungry, and thankful that this lesson took place during a meal. That way, it was okay if food was on her mind throughout class. She raised her hand to answer the question, watching the Bruschetta circle around the table dying for it to get to her. "The food usually starts with the host, and moves around the table to the left, where his family usually sits." Presley sat two places down from her father on the left when they had dinner, with Leo occupting the space between them, or now that Leo had moved out, right next to him, and if Leo brought Charmayne to dinner, Presley moved down one more seat and Charmayne sat next to Leo. It sounded complicated, but it was just how it went.

Not having brought anything to take notes, Gideon simply took note of the answers everyone had given and Professor Cerulean had accepted as correct answers. Doing as she directed, the boy found his napkin and placed it on his lap before catching the menu that fell from the ceiling to his place. She had certainly put a lot of effort into this and not just the meal, he mused looking over the given items. Before the 5th year knew it however the sheet was taken away from him as well as the others.

As the appetizers appeared, Gideon mulled over the question that was presented to them. "Would it be to the left professor? So ye are passing it in front of ye rather then having yer arm in yer neighbor's face?" It certainly made sense as he lowered his arm after raising it to answer.

Alyssa placed her napkin on her lap, reviewed the menu to see what they would be having for dinner, and then listened when the Professor asked her next question. This was one answer she knew. Alyssa raised her hand and said. "Professor, the plate would be passed to the person sitting to the left of me, clockwise."

Instantly, a list of the seven courses appeared on the screens.

1. Appetizers
2. Soup
3. Salad
4. Sorbet to clear the palette
5. Pasta, Fish or Poultry Dish
6. Red Meat, Fish, or Poultry with Vegetables
7. DESSERT!!!!

She smiled at the students, "If you haven't already, please grab your napkin and place it in your lap. It should stay there for the remainder of our meal and should be used occasionally to wipe your mouth."

With a flick of her wand menus dropped from the ceiling and landed in their laps. "We are going to begin our seven course meal. As we go along, I'll introduce you to some different rules of etiquette when eating. Feel free to ask any questions that you think of. "



"Please glance over the menu..."she said excitedly and then once she felt like they had all had ample time to preview the menu, she flicked her wand and the menus flew away. "Okay let's get things started..."

She flicked her wand in a circular motion and the appetizer flew into the room and levitated above each of the tables. "Can anyone tell me what the proper direction we should pass the tray of brushetta around the table is?"

SPOILER!!: Brushetta




OOC: Remember to raise your hand before you answer. .And as always remember she is always watching you! But remember she doesn't handle rudeness towards Muggle ways very well, so you might want to keep those prejudices to yourself unless you want face the consequences! Remember we haven't started eating yet....We will soon though!


Vickers raised his hand as he replied, "It usually starts with the host, and passes it to the next person to his or her left, keeping that going in one direction until everybody at the table has their share. "

Taylor put her napkin on her lap but refused to answer the teacher's question since she didn't feel like answering questions on manners right now so she sat quietly.

The professor's eyes became huge and they nearly popped out of her head at the student's reply...she couldn't tell if the student didn't know or if she was being funny. "Well, if this is a class about eating properly, then I doubt that throwing food would be appropriate..and I can't honestly think of any setting that would be acceptable...please think through your answers..." she said sternly at the student...she didn't want that even started in this room.

SPOILER!!: YES YES YES!!!

"The food usually starts with the host, and moves around the table to the left, where his family usually sits." Presley sat two places down from her father on the left when they had dinner, with Leo occupting the space between them, or now that Leo had moved out, right next to him, and if Leo brought Charmayne to dinner, Presley moved down one more seat and Charmayne sat next to Leo. It sounded complicated, but it was just how it went.

And now the smell of the brushetta was making Sky hungry…

What if something that was served this evening was something she was allergic to? Then what was she supposed to do?! Was it proper etiquette to eat it without a fuss, or was there a proper way to turn down a certain dish?

Kurumi glanced nervously at her napkin and picked it up, unfolding it and resting it on her lap. Glancing up at the levitating plate above her table. She looked back at their table, noticing its rounded shape and became even more confused by her question. "Professor," Kurumi said with her hand raised. "Where do we begin passing from? Usually, when the tables are square there is someone sitting at the head of the table who gets dishes serves first...but we are at round ones." Kurumi knew where the head of the table was in accordance to the customs she grew up with, but this was already so different from everything she knew. She couldn't really pass from left to right...or right to left...whichever way it was without knowing where everything started.

At least she was sitting now. No need to worry about tumbling and twisting her ankle in her heels.

"To the left, Professor" Just like that muggle song.."Until it circles back to the first giver."

He raised his hand after placing his napkin in his lap, "Professor don't you take one for yourself and then pass the plate to your left?" You needed to take one for yourself first right, or else everyone would just pass it and no one would get any.

So it was a fair assumption to make.

Wow. That menu looked amazing. He briefly wondered WHO had cooked all of that. Probably the house elf. Lewis glanced at the professor for a moment, trying to assess if maybe she was able to cook all this. Huh. Maybe, maybe not. Though, it had probably been the house elves.

Aw, goodbye menu. Lewis really wished they would have been allowed to keep them. There were some great ideas on them. But there was the first course already. Brushetta. "Profesha, I fink it's fro' left to righ'." Okay, maybe he should have taken his quill out of his mouth first. Raising his hand again after putting the quill in his lap, he repeated his answer again. "I think it's from left to right, Professor." There. Could they eat now? Please?

Now, to figure out which way to pass the food. Elise remembered something her mother said about only giving with the right hand, because some Muggles were superstitious. Raising her hand, she made sure it didn't hit anything.

"Is it left to right, Professor?"
she asked. Cause giving that way just makes sense. Lowering her hand, she relaxed, never letting her posture go slack.

He didn't want to become too distracted, though, so he quickly turned his attention back to the professor. There was a proper way to distribute the food? Eino raised his hand. "Perhaps it would be considerate to begin with the person who is most hungry first, and continue in a most-hungry to least-hungry order, until the person who is the least hungry is served." Any other way would be preposterously and rudely incorrect! He lowered his hand and then folded both of his hands neatly on his lap. He had always heard that resting your elbows on a table was bad, so he was trying to prevent that.

She knew a little about proper dinning, which was helping her some what.

She had certainly put a lot of effort into this and not just the meal, he mused looking over the given items. Before the 5th year knew it however the sheet was taken away from him as well as the others.

As the appetizers appeared, Gideon mulled over the question that was presented to them. "Would it be to the left professor? So ye are passing it in front of ye rather then having yer arm in yer neighbor's face?" It certainly made sense as he lowered his arm after raising it to answer.

Alyssa raised her hand and said. "Professor, the plate would be passed to the person sitting to the left of me, clockwise."



"Thank you! You are all correct!!!" she said with a tilt of her head towards the right. Instantly a diagram popped up on the screen showing an arrow going around a round table and then an arrow going around a square/rectangle table. "You pass the food to the left going in a clockwise direction...if you were sitting at the table with the host, you would let the host start the food...but since we are all here learning together we don't have an official host, so the plate will just start with a random student..." with that the plates of bruschetta levitated to one person at the table and waited for it to be grabbed. "Please just grab one bruschetta off the plate. The plates have been charmed not to fall" she added before someone got nervous about that. "Because the bruschetta is a bread you may eat it with your hands....and place it on your bread dish..."

She flicked her wand and the menu appeared on the screens again and the appetizer was crossed out on the list. "Okay now onto to our next course...and no worries about not being able to finish all of the courses. Each course isn't a huge serving but just enough...." she said moving her wand to signal the cups of soup to come in. Each one flew in and levitated above the tables. "Now before we get our next course I just want to remind you of some common rules that apply in any eating setting...." she said with her sweet smile.

"Number One...never talk with food in your mouth...Number Two....Do not put your elbows on the table. This is rude and can knock items off the table...Number Three...Don't blow on your food, just let it cool down while you have conversations with other guests...and Number Four...If you ever get something that you don't like. It is always customary to take atleast one bite to try it out....unless you are allergic and then you just don't touch it...." yes those were some simple and good ones to start with.

"So before the soup is delivered, can anyone tell me from which side the food will be served to you? And when you done with a course, which side the dish will be removed from?" she asked hoping her question made sense.

OOC: Remember to raise your hand before you answer. .And as always remember she is always watching you! But remember she doesn't handle rudeness towards Muggle ways very well, so you might want to keep those prejudices to yourself unless you want face the consequences! Try the bread!!!!

Selena picked one of the funny looking things off of the platter thingy. She had seen this thing before, at parties her mother liked to hold. She didn't like them. They never did look very fun eating. Still, she picked it up and placed it on her bread dish, which was apparently on her left. Right.

Selena knew those rules, obviously. She tried her best not to kick her legs back and forth as she listened to the professor speak. "Is the dish served from your right and taken from your left?" Selena asked after raising her hand. It would make sense since they were passing the dishes to the left, right?
