Dish up something special with vintage dinnerware and antique dishes. Whether you’re filling a china cabinet for display, or just stocking the cabinets, having unique dish sets on hand can make entertaining just a tad bit sweeter (and hosting a spur-of-the-moment fete just a tad bit easier). Part of the fun of vintage dinnerware is choosing a style that mirrors your personality. For traditionalists, antique china sets and antique crystal dishes can be perfect for curating a sophisticated tabletop. Those with more eclectic tastes may gravitate towards mismatched blue and white dishes and floral dishes to mix and match a table that really brings the whimsy. There’s no rule that says vintage dinnerware has to be used en masse, either. Antique dish sets can be broken up and single plates can be used as a catchall on a nightstand, or as wall décor in a kitchen. Antique candy dishes are also fair game for reinventions. Look for antique candy dishes in heavy, clear crystal for a one-of-a-kind ring dish or to corral citrus on a bar cart. On the hunt for collectible dishware? Hunt for antique blue cobalt dishes and lemon dinnerware. Sectional dinnerware like Fiestaware is also a novelty worth seeking out.
