The Friday Five: Dinnerware

I’m on the hunt for dinnerware. I know I want a white collection but I’m not sure if I should go for round or square, detailed or plain.

Do you have any advice to share?

Happy Friday and have a most wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!

    I’ve had white dishes for many years now and I love them, it always highlights the food, which should always be the star (in my opinion)!
    I have both round and a sort of rounded-square, and they’re both great. The more square you go, the more risk they might break/chip, for obvious reasons, you have a higher chance to bang the corners. 😉
    I like all the ones above, but I really like the rustic look of the Flow collection from West Elm.

      Thanks for your sound advice. I am leaning towards a classic round set. Since I wrote this post (yes, only a few days ago), I think I’m leaning towards bone chine rather than stoneware. The search continues…

    I desperately want to get some new white dishes, our current set just isn’t cutting it (black and taupe). I am leaning towards round, but we currently have square. I like both. I’m going the el-cheapo route and most likely going to get a set from Ikea.

      Hi Julie,
      Well – I went dish shopping last weekend and I have realized that I prefer round and I’m now leaning toward bone china. I haven’t found a set that I love yet though. Slight problem. I’m not fully opposed to stoneware but the bone china feels so much better! The Ikea sets are nice but they’re not that much cheaper than other sets (from other kitchen stores, West Elm, etc.)…in the research that I’ve done, at least.
      How has your square set worked out for you? Why are you thinking of making the switch to round?
