Formal dinnerware does not only have to be elegant, but it can also be relatively functional and practical. The best formal dinnerware is easy to clean and store; however, finer pieces of formal dinnerware often features gold plating and must be hand-washed. For those who are short on time and want to easily clean up after a dinner party, then make sure your formal dinnerware is dishwasher safe. Low-maintenance formal dinnerware is generally flat and made with either elegant patterns or fine material. If you don’t mind spending extra time cleaning your formal dinnerware, then feel free to invest in diner designs, including three-dimensional patterns.
The aesthetics of your formal dinnerware should match well with your table linens, as well as your dining room décor. Traditional dining rooms often feature ornate dining tables and curio cabinets featuring fine china. For traditional dining rooms, your formal dinnerware often looks best if it matches the rest of your room. The most common form of traditional formal dinnerware includes either gold plating or three-dimensional designs including flowers and vines. Contemporary formal dinnerware is often made with the finest materials, but is simply designed. Remember, your tabletop design is your chance to amaze your guests with your personal style.
Aside from functionality and design, formal dinnerware sets come with many different place settings. If you enjoy hosting large dinner parties for holidays, birthdays, or other special events, then consider purchasing a 40 piece dinnerware set. For smaller dinner parties you can shop from 16-20 piece formal dinnerware sets.
