Christmas Dinnerware Sets

What does your eye look for in the perfect Christmas table?

Is it a centrepiece created from holly leaves and a floral wreath? Is it the crackers adoring each place setting? Is it the multiple layers of cutlery which confirm a feast is to come? Or is it the time and thought which has gone into selecting the perfect dinnerware set for Christmas?

One of the main questions we get asked by buyers around Christmastime is whether they need a specific dinnerware set for their Christmas table, and where they can find sets which will match and compliment the existing decorative style they have in their home – both in terms of their Christmas decorations and their permanent styling.

Christmas dinnerware sets for the modern home

If you live in a modern home, the chances are that you will be reading this from the comfort of an open space – surrounding by minimal clutter and plenty of large open areas complete with neutral colouring and decoration. For you, Christmas is about encompassing the festivities within your relaxing atmosphere, with the likelihood being that your colour scheme is set around the silvers and golds rather than deep reds and forest greens.

Your perfect dining set will celebrate your home’s seamless link with nature, with some of the best options taking very neutral backdrops and placing on them printed or hand painted patterns in ornately natural colours, for example the greens and golds to match your Christmas tree and surrounding decorations. If you want to add an extra level of aesthetic interest, consider the higher value dinnerware sets where every diner has a slightly different motif or pattern on their plate and surrounding crockery, elevating the overall appearance of the table to one which is full of unique patterning but which from a distance retains your very angular and perfect structuring.

Christmas dinnerware sets for a big family party

This is where you can get away with more colour, with some of the best festive dinnerware sets for large family parties taking Christmas’ most popular characters and phrases and plastering them on plates, serving dishes and along the handles of knives and forks. When it comes to the overall aesthetic of your table, the effect will be truly festive and will inspire complete joy, making it the ideal table setting and dinnerware set for a family with both adults and children present.

We recommend considering the material of your dinnerware sets for large age range families, with one of our top tips being to invest in a set of plastic dinnerware plates and bowls for younger children to reduce the hazard or accidents or broken china. You will find that many department store retailers’ stock both china and plastic dinnerware sets in the same or similar designs, meaning you should be able to use both kinds without disrupting the visual appearance of your table.

Christmas dinnerware sets for an intimate Christmas for two

A romantic and intimate Christmas dinner for two means going all out with an extravagant dinnerware set, with some of our favourite options taking the richest and most vibrant of Christmas colours and placing them on dinnerware sets to emanate a really opulent mood. Filling a large table with dinner for two can sometimes leave the table looking like something is missing – however the use of darker and richer colours will ensure the finish is cosy and warm; welcoming and festive.
