I don’t want to put it down to age, but my increasing love for beautiful tableware has intensified the past few years.
While I never gave much thought to what I was eating off in my late 20s, I now feel an overwhelming urge to invest in quality tableware to make my dinner parties more stylish as I move toward my mid-thirties.
Of course, I don’t throw dinner parties often, and I eat my dinner on the couch in front of the tele most nights, but the urge to entertain in style has become overwhelmingly present.
I want to invite my friends around all the time now, to literally gorge on gigantic wheels of cheese, drink monstrous goblets of red wine and consume more crackers than my recommended daily intake of carbs allows.
Maybe it is an age thing (I turned 35 this year), but whatever the reason – I’m loving this new era of stylish consumption. That’s what I’m going to term it, in fact, so that when my partner asks, “Do you really need that 6th wheel of Bree?” I can respond with nothing but “stylish consumption!!!”.
Which brings me to today’s post, Creatives. I’ve hunted out 11 divine tableware brands that are making, producing and selling some extraordinary pieces for your tabletop. Each one is uniquely different from the next, and I’m certain you’ll find one that’ll help you enjoy your own stylish consumption 😉
11 Tableware Brands that’ll help you Entertain in Style
I love these eclectic Dapper Animal plates like I do my own mother. They inject such fun into a table setting and they’re only $14 each. I also love that you’d not need to store these away; they’re little works of art in their own right. Click here to shop this tableware.
Serve me up some tapas in these bad boys and pass me a sangria. I love the intricate designs in these ceramic plate sets. And the fact that they’re made to order just makes the whole experience so much more charming if you ask me. Click here to shop this tableware.
Jones and Co:
Good good Miss Molly. I love a geometric pattern and go mad for polka dots, so I adore the idea of teaming the two together for a sensory overload on your tabletop. This is tableware with serious visual impact, but it can be easily calmed with the addition of some white plates. Click here to shop this tableware.
Suite One Studio:
It doesn’t get softer, delicate or more feminine than these divine lace cheeseboards, which come in a variety of colours and are packed with loads of charm. All handmade, I love the muted colour story here; it really allows the pattern and texture to shine.
White & Co:
I know, I know, it’s not all about colour! Some of the best tableware on the market is dripping in soft, subtle tones. And this gorgeous Flax Oval Platter is a perfect example. It’s wonderfully glossy, dishwasher proof, and part of a larger range, so you can collect the whole set!
Nobody does colour and pattern better than the clever cookies at Marimekko. I love the florals that are at play in this Karuselli collection, and I love that you can easily mix and match them with existing pieces on your tabletop to create a vibrant colour-clash. Click here to shop this tableware.
Be still my beating heart! I’m going gaga over the sense of sophistication in these Art of Science plates. Made from fine bone china and gold-rimmed, they are as luxurious as they are captivating to look at. Forget using them for food, actually, I’d like to pop them up on the wall.

David and Waddell:
I’m all for the sunny, morning vibe that this Liberty range of dinnerware brings to a setting. I wouldn’t mind waking up to this collection, which is splashed with glossy blue and turquoise tones, interesting shapes and dynamic pattern. Click here to shop this tableware.
Academy Home Goods:
There’s nothing more hearty and inviting than a rustic kitchen or tabletop. If this is your kind of theme at home, then the entire product range from Academy Home Goods will rock your world. My fave piece is the Elliot Rectangular Boards. Click here to shop this tableware.
I like the folky pattern in this white and cobalt dinnerware from Pottery Barn. It feels classic and timeless, bringing with it a sense of relaxed sophistication. The pieces in the Elsie collection can be purchased separately, so you can create your own visual story. Click here to shop this tableware.
I couldn’t let this post go live without including a budget buy. So here it is in all its pastel glory. This Spliced Dinner Setting is packed with subtle hues and milky whites, all glazed and starting from as little as $2 each. The grey is my fave colour – how about you?
