When you need a new set of tableware for your home, it is often a little overwhelming as there are so many styles and types of tableware to choose from.
If you want a traditional dinner service then it is as well to check out the well known patterns and makers of china as there are some stunning services available which have remained popular for many years…in some cases centuries.
Willow Pattern tableware
Willow Pattern tableware has been a popular design for many years; in classic blue and white it is the iconic pattern which tells the story of two lovers whose story has been retold over many centuries. This is a lovely pattern to choose for your tableware and will remain a favourite for years to come.
Roses and other floral tableware
Floral tableware has never gone out of fashion although the styles have changed the theme has remained. Posies and scatterings of flowers make a lovely display if you want to show off your tableware on a dresser or in a cabinet. Again choose a classic or go with your gut and choose the one which speaks to you most!
With many designs to choose from, the modern householder is spoiled for choice in terms of tableware and as designers are always coming up with new designs, there is always something fresh to choose from.
Animal tableware has been very popular in recent years and there are many designs to choose from. Dinner services with horses, owls and birds are amongst the most popular contemporary tableware and with bright colours and modern graphics they really create an eye catching display in any home.
Choose your dinner service with great care and remember that you should buy the best that you can afford as with any luck it will hold its value and become an heirloom one day.
