The champagne flutes still look too narrow.  The pictures of champagne flutes
I've seen have a bowl height to diameter ratio of about 2.5.

The chair backs look uncomfortably straight and low.  Leroy has a good chair at
<https://github.com/CousinRicky/POV-lrchairs>, though I don't know if it would
fit the atmosphere you're trying to achieve.

The forks and spoon are better, but they still look somewhat awkward.  I think
what would help are variable width along the length of the handle and some
curvature where the handle meets the business end.

The napkins are very much improved!

I don't know how you did it, but the image looks perfectly fine without
radiosity.  If you hadn't pointed it out, I would not have known that radiosity
wasn't used.
