Setting the table: glasses

I had a dinner party tonight. More on that later. First I want to make a note on setting the table with glasses before I forget and have to look it up again! My source is the French cookbook La bonne cuisine pour tous. It is a wonderful resource if you can read French. My friend's mom gave it to me when I lived in France.

Glasses from left to right: champagne glass, water glass, red wine glass, white wine glass. Coffee cups and saucers do not go on the table because at the end of the meal, one invites the guests to retire from the table to the sitting room. The coffee and after dinner drinks are served at this point.
