I always tend to use the Pretty Woman guide to cutlery- start from the outside and work your way in. A friend also taught me a little cheat when trying to figure out which bread and drink are yours at a large table. Make a circle with your thumb and middle, ring and pinky fingers. With your pointer finger sticking up you should see a lower case "b" and "d." B is for bread and D is for drink. Now you'll never forget!
