When you pulled out your flatware at Thanksgiving, did it look a little dowdy? I know mine did. Whenever we have folks over for a dinner, then I spend time sorting through my pieces: the ones that are worn visit the rear of the drawer, and the fresher pieces go outside on the dining table. Let us face it, we use this stuff daily, and it’s showing. So let’s start our holiday entertaining (and also the new year) on the right foot with new flatware! — Donna from A Great Gray
Maxfield Flatware – $99
This routine was one of my favorites for a while. Each piece is different, giving this place a gathered, hotel silver feel.

Brass and organic bone create a killer combo in this set.
Kyoto Flatware – $39.95
I’m a sucker for bamboo.

The wooden swirls within this set would make me really happy.
Grand Hotel II Flatware – $39.95
All these are substantial pieces using a crisp, traditional appearance.
Languiole French Country Flatware – $85
The orange/amber color of the grips is so rich, including a great French country feel to this place.

A beautiful monogrammed set is perhaps just a little dressier.
