A short intro to the wide world of flatware
Having good flatware to complement your dinnerware is essential. Without quality flatware even the most expensive of china would seem like rustic porcelain. But fortunately, this does not mean that even flatware is very costly and you will have to break the bank for it. There is a wide range of flatware out there, ranging from high end to inexpensive.
You can get cheap flatware at sales and discounts. The idea is to pick something that is sustainable and also complements your table décor. It doesn’t mean that you have to go for pure or even sterling silver. There are other substitutes out there that look classy and elegant too like brass, which is then plated.
Check out this West Elm Twig flatware, 5-pc setting in bronze that is classic and simple. You can use these when you’re setting the table with a woodsy theme, a neutral palette of dinnerware or a mix-and-match approach. The blend of stainless steel and brass with a silver finish adds to the aura.
When talking of expensive flatware one of the most popular choices is stainless steel flatware. You can opt for this Ginkgo Starlight 74-piece stainless steel flatware set that will service 12 along with a 2 piece hostess set. The brand offers consumers the highest quality flatware and cutlery products at the best possible value.
All of the pieces are made from 18/0 stainless steel and are dishwasher safe. Their signature pattern has been designed by Wes Helmick in the 15th and 16th century colonial period and silver, melted from coins, was used in the process. I agree that most people would think twice about investing in expensive pieces, but the idea is that if its lasts you for decades, then it is really worth it!
