Arranging Your Perfect Tabletop With Place Settings
From casual weeknight meals with the family to formal feasts with friends, place settings help create the perfect atmosphere to elevate your dining experience. At a minimum, a place setting is comprised of the items you use to eat your meal. These items might include dinnerware, glassware, silverware and even your table linens. At Williams Sonoma Canada, we've curated a selection of dinnerware sets that help take the guesswork out of what items you'll need to create the perfect tabletop settings for any occasion.
Place settings come with a variety of pieces depending on the size of set that you choose. One of our 12-piece sets includes four each of a dinner plate, salad plate and cereal bowl. One of our 16-piece sets includes four each of a dinner plate, salad plate, pasta bowl and mug. Select styles allow you to choose the same item, like a salad plate or dipping bowl, in a set of four.
Our styles range from vibrant botanical designs made with bold blues and vivid yellows to whimsical floral meadow themes for children. You can bring a touch of formality to tabletop settings with our crisp white porcelain set bordered by a thin, bold blue band. Or dive into detail with our Victorian-inspired dinnerware set that features an intricate textured design around the rim.
Versatile porcelain can easily transition from casual weeknight meals to fancy weekend brunches thanks to its refined yet durable design. Shatter-resistant melamine makes a fabulous choice for dining on the porch or patio. We have BPA-free silicone dinnerware sets for little ones who are just beginning to feed themselves. A sectioned plate keeps different foods apart, while a coordinating bib keeps their clothes clean.
Beyond Table Settings
After you've settled on your favourite place settings, think about what kinds of delicious meals and desserts you can serve on your new dinner plates, salad plates and pasta bowls. Peruse our cookbooks to discover inventive twists on your favourites such as pizzas, salads and pasta. Or roll up your sleeves and get baking with seasonal treats, cakes, doughnuts and more. Don't forget to top up your collection of spices and seasonings. From chicken seasoning to pizza-inspired spices, bbq-ready collections to air fryer seasonings and more, you'll be serving up tasty meals in no time. Make good use of your dipping bowls as you set the table with a selection of condiments. Happy dining!
