Dinner Sets FAQs

How to set a dinner table

Given your table is the focal point of the dining room, it's worthwhile following some easy-to-remember guidelines for setting your table properly. It all starts with a dinner plate in the centre of the setting. Knives, forks and spoons should then be placed on the table in order of use, starting from the outside and working inwards with each course (as a rule of thumb, your knives and forks for the main meal should be closest to the plate). Forks go to the left of the plate, soup spoons and knives go to the right. Knife blades face toward the plate, and spoons sit outside the knives.

For formal occasions, the same guidelines apply. However, salad and main forks should be placed on top of an ironed and folded napkin. Glasses for water, and red and white wine glasses sit at approximately where 1 o'clock is on a clock face. To finish off your formal setting, a salad plate and soup bowl should be placed on top of the dinner plate, while a bread & butter plate with a knife laid across it is placed at 10 o'clock.

Dinner set vs individual dinnerware: what's better?

When it comes to finding the best dinnerware and crockery for your home, there are many advantages to starting off your selection by purchasing a dinner set. Dinner sets are often a very affordable way to grab everything you need in one go, and you can be assured that each piece matches perfectly when you set them out. Dinnerware sets are ideal for new homeowners and are also a great way to kickstart a kitchen and dining makeover. Having said that, adding to your dinner set with individual pieces will extend your meal presentation options - and remember, adding contrasting colours and designs can also make a dramatic style statement!

How to care for your dinner set pieces

Harris Scarfe's range of dinnerware items are designed to be durable, practical, as well as stylish. Whether your dinner set is made from porcelain, stoneware or other ceramic it's important to carefully clean and use your dinnerware to ensure it goes the distance! Be sure to take note of the manufacturer's recommendations when it comes to dishwasher, microwave and oven safety. Some other top tips include avoiding dramatic changes in temperature (eg. placing a plate into the microwave straight from the fridge) as this can cause cracking from thermal shock. Make sure you stack plates and bowls neatly into your dishwasher without them touching to avoid chipping.
