There’s really an art to setting a lovely table. The right table setting involves a balance between the practical needs of the event, including the food being served, the number of guests at the table, and the type of get together being planned. All these elements must stay in balance, along with the choice of a silverware set, centerpiece and linens that bring the table to life beautifully. Choosing these items well and keeping these elements in balance can greatly enhance a wonderful dinner celebration.
There’s a range of choices available today in table utensils. Choosing a silverware set that enhances a table is one of the keys to making a dinner experience flow well. Some hostesses like to have a couple of sets on hand, one for more formal events and another set that works well for more everyday needs. Some “everyday” sets can work well for formal occasions, too, especially if the look of the table décor balances the flatware and adds to an overall feeling of elegance.
Vera Wang Wedgewood has stainless steel flatware appropriate for everyday use but designed with an effortless flow that makes them a beautiful choice for formal dining as well. The polished knives, forks and spoons in these sets have a flawless look that adds a special flow to a table. Sets also have additional pieces including a sugar spoon, butter knife, cold meat fork tablespoon and pierced tablespoon.
Reed & Barton has flatware sets that offer a streamlined feel. The clean lines of the knives, forks and spoons in this set add a sense of ease and sophistication to a meal, making them appropriate for a range of dining events and moods. These sets include 12 settings, along with additional utensil pieces. This is a set the accomplished host or hostess will not want to be without.
