4 Tips for Buying New Place Settings

4 Tips for Buying New Place Settings

Whether you’re creating a bridal registry or you’re just looking for a change in home decor, there are many factors to consider when picking out new dinner place settings. You’ll want a material that is not only beautiful, but can also withstand everyday use and last for years to come. Take a look at a few helpful tips to get you started. 

  1. Look for Quality
    Dinnerware must be durable to withstand regular use. Consider purchasing earthen stoneware, which is made with strong clay. This material is chip-resistant and can withstand high temperatures. Plus, you’ll find stoneware in a variety of colors, finishes, and shapes that suit your home decor style.

  2. Order Enough for Family & Guests
    Families often worry about not ordering enough place settings to accommodate everyone and guests. Most people agree to start with 12 place settings, which should cover your family plus six to eight guests. However, if you’re buying individual pieces as opposed to a set, you could start with dinner plates, salad/dessert plates, soup/cereal bowls, or perhaps a mug.

  3. Choose for Formal or Every Day
    Many people prefer to have two place settings: one for casual everyday use and another for formal gatherings. Stoneware is a popular choice for any occasion because it can withstand such heavy use. The unique patterns and styles are sure to impress your guests. If you are frequently hosting formal gatherings, don’t forget to include platters, servers and trays in your collection.

  4. Opt for Microwave & Dishwasher Safe
    Unless you want to spend every evening hand-washing dishes, always choose dishwasher-safe pieces. Microwave and oven-safe dinnerware will, of course, add to the convenience for families. Stoneware plates are perfect for oven use too since they will evenly distribute heat and retain moisture. And the hard glaze finish makes them easy to clean.
