Has anyone participated in such formal dining experience in a private home?

Yes, The fine china and silverware comes out each Christmas Eve when the family gathers at my sister's house. The other time is when the family gathers for our mother's birthday party. Given that she is 97, it is unclear how much longer this tradition will continue.

With regard to the silverware that my mother inherited from my grandparents, it is now used daily.
