Give any guests a place setting they're bound to remember with a set of beautifully styled and polished flatware. Glossy metal forks, knives, spoons and other utensils are a pleasure to hold and to eat with, and create an artistic table when combined with a fine dish set. Choosing the right set of dinnerware can be tricky, though, especially for those who have a favorite set of dishes and want to choose flatware that makes an attractive match.
If matching place settings to an existing set of dishes, consider the style as well as the colors. A set of fine china would match wonderfully with ornate, embellished forks and spoons. Brands like Oneida, Yamazaki and Vera Wang offer lovely ornate and finely-detailed sets of forks, spoons and knives, serving utensils and more.
Like colorful dishes and serving platters? Continue the theme with vibrant and lively spoons, knives and forks with colored handles in hues like orange, yellow, red, blue, green and white. Shiny stainless steel or silver reflect all colors back, creating gorgeous place settings all around any table with colorful cutlery and utensils, and especially colorful food. Browse brands like Fiesta, Villeroy & Boch and Portmeirion for colorful dish sets.
A beautiful flatware set deserves an attractive and sturdy storage area when not in use. Maintain the condition of your metal utensil sets in a decorative way with a multipurpose caddy from brands like The Cellar and Design Ideas. Choose from drawer-style caddies or multi-purpose chest-style caddies, and your forks and spoons will stay safe and shiny in style.
For a table setting with rich color and texture, add a colored tablecloth and matching table linens. Browse from beautiful colors like deep red, forest green, yellow, beige and more for day to day use. For those special occasions, switch to a delicate lace or ivory silk tablecloth from Elrene Table Linens, Homewear Table Linens, Waterford Table Linens or one of many other great brands.
