Once the dishes and glassware are chosen, all that remains is to choose the flatware in a pattern and style that can enhance everything else on the table. Oneida stainless flatware is available in a variety of beautiful designs and shapes to match the atmosphere of almost any set of dishes.
If the dinnerware is ornate, it might be a good idea to choose plain flatware. Stainless steel is a strong material that will never have to be polished. When dinner is over and it’s time to cleanup, a lot of time can be saved if the pieces are dishwasher safe. A basic place setting should include salad and dinner forks as well as a knife and soup spoon.
Also simple in design and easy to match to other pieces, square flatware is always elegant and unique to use on any table. Choose a design that includes bands at the shanks and tips and is dishwasher safe. Check to make sure the pattern will continue to be available so the collection can grow as needed. A good place setting consists of salad and dinner forks, as well as a soup spoon, teaspoon and knife.
Ready for something more decorative? A set of flatware with borders is perfect for adding interest to a place setting created with solid color dinnerware. Choose Oneida stainless flatware with a raised dot pattern along the edge of the handles for a bit of understated but very visible elegance. Be sure to include some extra special pieces such as sugar spoons and butter knives if they will be needed.
For very formal dinners start with a basic setting for each person and add additional serving pieces depending on the meal that will be served. A hostess set that matches the flatware can provide special serving pieces such as a pierced serving spoon, a serving fork and a gravy ladle.
