Which side of the plate does the dinner napkin go?
At a formal dinner setting the napkin is commonly placed across the dinner plate at the beginning of the meal. In some settings the napkin is folded and placed to the left of, and is some cases beneath the forks. At breakfast and again at luncheon the napkin is folded (sometimes artfully) to the left of the place setting. At an informal or family style dinner the napkin may be tucked into a napkin ring and placed either on or to the left of the plate. At a buffet the napkins are found folded on the buffet table in proximity to the flatware. At good restaurants and dinner parties napkins are appearing artfully folded on the dinner plates, above the setting and on occasion in the wine glass. This is the only time the napkin is found on the right of the place setting. During a seated meal your napkin should be a placed across your lap, never tucked into your collar or waistband. When leaving the table during dinner your napkin should remain on your chair until your return when it is replace on your lap. At the end of a formal dinner, as everyone is leaving the table the napkin is placed loosely to the left of the place setting.

Asked in Thanksgiving
How do you set Thanksgiving dinner table?
Setting a Thanksgiving dinner table depends on how formal you want to be. Of course, starting with a Thanksgiving table cloth is always a nice touch. Generally, a proper place setting starts with the plate, with the knife next to it on the right and the spoon next to the knife. The blade of the knife faces the plate. On the left side of the plate is the napkin with the fold facing away from the plate and the dinner fork either on top of the napkin or between it and the plate. The glass is placed at the top of the knife and spoon. If you wish, you can add additional silverware, such as a soup spoon, salad fork, seafood fork, butter knife, etc, depending on what will be served. When adding silverware, place the additional pieces beside the matching pieces in the order they are expected to be used starting from the farthest away from the plate. Additional china can be added, too. A bread and butter plate can be placed above the fork and napkin. A cup and saucer for coffee or tea can be placed beside the napkin, etc.

Asked in Manners and Etiquette
What is a typical place setting?
A typical setting, such as often seen in small cafés, consists of simply a knife, fork and spoon. Occasionally, there may be a butter plate provided. Moving from Left to right would be: Napkin, Fork, PLATE, Knife (blade facing plate), Spoon. In some cultures, the napkin is placed beneath the fork. Optionally, a coffee cup may be placed above the knife and spoon. Quick-serve restaurants often dispense with etiquette rules and opt for functionality by placing the Fork, knife, and spoon atop the napkin. In those scenarios, the entire collection of cutlery is placed to the right of where the plate will eventually go.
