You're golden!

A general rule for setting the table: the utensils and glasses farthest away from the plate are used first. The utensils and glasses closer to the plate are used later in the meal. If serving bread, the bread plate should be placed directly above the forks with a butter knife set across the middle.

you forgot to put the little spoon or fork (or both, it depends) above the plate for dessert
