Place Settings For Every Occasion
Much like your tablecloth and napkins, place settings allow you to add colour, texture and seasonal flair to your table. While you may have a go-to dish set for everyday use, having a variety of place settings to choose from makes setting the table for a special meal a whole lot more fun. You may also want to consider having a set of shatterproof melamine dishes for use outside or at the kids' table.
Whether you're looking to update your daily dishes or invest in place settings for specific holidays or other special occasions, Williams Sonoma Canada has plenty of options for your consideration. When shopping for new dish sets, you'll want to think about how and when you plan to use them. If you need to update your daily-use dishes, you might opt for something in a durable material like vitrified glass or porcelain, which despite its fragile appearance, is remarkably chip-resistant. If your more formal dinners tend to be concentrated around the fall and winter holidays, you might consider place settings with a festive motif like fall leaves or holly. A dish set with a bold floral pattern or subtle metallic accents would be an excellent choice for special meals at any time of year, and colourful melamine place settings are a great choice if you like to entertain outdoors. Williams Sonoma Canada carries a wide variety of patterns in all of these categories, many of which have coordinating pieces of servingware. Here are just a few of your options:
