Changing up your dinnerware when a new season starts is a great way to make a regular meal feel special.
To make things a little easier, we have done the work and found some great fall tableware options that fit the warm and cozy vibe that is the crux of the fall and winter seasons. These dish sets are affordable, reliable and versatile enough to get you through, season after season. They include options with pastoral depictions for anyone who likes classic tableware, as well as more modern stoneware options that would look right at home at a hip cafe.
Depending on your taste preferences, our options include full tableware sets that include all the plates, bowls and mugs you will need to create the perfect place setting.
1. Stone Lain Stoneware Dinnerware Set
If your tastes skew minimal, consider this set from Stone Lain, which is available in matte black, brown or gray. This dinnerware set includes mugs, plates and bowls in a variety of sizes. Rather than traditional ceramic, this set is made from stoneware, lending a rustic yet modern look. You can choose between a setting for four or eight.
Pros: Stylish modern and minimal look. Comes in sets for four or eight.
Cons: Can have slight imperfections in the paint.
2. Johnson Brothers Friendly Village Set
The Dinnerware Set by Johnson Brothers is a 5-piece set that includes a 10-inch dinner plate, 8-inch salad plate, 6-inch soup/cereal bowl, teacup and saucer. Made from dishwasher-safe earthenware, this set features design inspiration from pastoral village scenes and the beauty of the four seasons.
Pros: These dishes are microwave safe.
Cons: If you prefer a subtler design, another option might be better.
3. Pfaltzgraff Trellis Dinnerware Set
The Trellis Dinnerware Set by Pfaltzgraff is a 16-piece set with service for four. It includes 4 each: dinner plate, salad plate, soup, cereal bowl, and mugs and has a subtle scroll pattern accented by dark markings to give it an aged, worn look. This versatile set is made of durable and high-quality stoneware, is dishwasher and microwave safe and can also be used in a conventional oven to warm and bake foods.
Pros: Pfaltzgraff has introduced a new, modern configuration by replacing the salad plate with a larger, more functional soup bowl.
