They may not have the power to make or break the taste of food, but a good set of dinnerware can enhance a meal by making it look amazing. It’s OK to splurge a little since you might be seeing each other at least three times a day. When you’re ready to start picking out yours, be sure to get dishes that will fit on your shelves and inside the dishwasher. Those with classic taste who want to get a little creative should start with white plates and add splashes of color around it. Don’t worry about buying separate sets for everyday use and for more formal dinners, and if you look for open stock rather than pre-packed sets of a certain size, you can customize your collection to suit your personal needs.
