Buying guide

Definition

How your dining table looks, has a large bearing on how your guests perceive your hospitality skills. To make your dining table stand out, you only need to buy great looking tableware. Which is the best place to buy your tableware from? One of the online stores would be a good choice.

 

What to look for in tableware?

 

How many pieces do you need?

You should buy tableware according to the size of your table. There are tableware sets for four people, six people, eight people and even more. The most common choice is usually for six people but then, it is your choice at the end of the day.

 

Tableware material options

You should also consider the tableware material. Look beyond porcelain, melamine and bone China and you will find options like earthenware, ironstone, glass and stoneware. Each material has its pros and cons and you need to read through these and make your choice. Melamine is the least expensive option, but looks-wise, it perhaps comes at the bottom of this (above mentioned) list.

 

Design as per your choice

The shape, pattern and colour of tableware should also be of consideration. This point is all about your personal style. But ensure that you complement the look of your tableware with your dining room. A green tabletop set will definitely not go with red tableware.

 

How to choose your tableware according to your need?

 

Tableware for parties

If you are looking for tableware party supplies, then you should perhaps go for a cheaper tableware set. In many parties (especially where drinks are involved), breakage of tableware is not uncommon. If even one piece of your expensive tableware breaks, the entire set will be wasted. The best tableware party set material is perhaps melamine.

 

Formal and casual tableware

For other parties, you could choose between formal and casual tableware. If you are hosting a weekend party for friends, casual tableware should be good enough. If it is your boss or in-laws coming over for dinner, a formal tableware set is definitely needed.

 

Common tableware sets

When you look for tableware online, it is not a bad idea to shop for a common set. The benefit of buying a common tableware set is that you can replace a broken piece easily. But of course, you should also have one expensive set that you will, for sure, handle with care.

 

What are the most popular tableware?

The BIA White Cordon Blue sushi set consists of two porcelain sushi plates, two porcelain sauce dishes, two chopstick rests and four chopsticks. All the pieces are safe for use in oven, microwave and dishwasher. The Le Creuset white mug is made of high-fired stoneware with a gorgeous enamel coating. It is oven, microwave and dishwasher safe. The interior is non-sticky glazed, making it easy to release the contents. The Ten Strawberry Street Nova 45 piece square dinnerware set is one of the most elegant you will come across. Shiny black in colour, this is an essential addition to your dining table.

 

Conclusion

Your choice in tableware tells a lot about you – at least this is what your guests will think. For the most appropriate setting, you should have a collection of a few sets for different social occasions. You wouldn’t mind this because you can shop online and save plenty on tableware.
