Your journey to being the “hostess doing the mostest” begins with serving a photo-ready table-scape — elegant plates, bowls and dishes are a must.
But, it’s no surprise we all cringe when we hear the words “fine China.” Immediately, our minds see the dollar signs escalate, though there are some wonderful dinnerware sets online that you can snag more affordably.
To prepare your table, we curated a unique edit of the 32 best fine China and dinnerware sets in 2022. After cooking with some of the best air fryers, pressure cookers, woks and, of course, the fan-favorite Always Pan and Caraway Cookware Set, you can render your home like an interior design pros.
Among our top online destinations for these top registry items, we included several individual selections to make your shopping experience as stress-free as can be (because we love to wine and dine just as much as you do).
As one of Amazon’s best-selling brands, Gibson offers relatively affordable dinnerware sets that are sleek, match-all and practical for entertaining. Specifically, we covet the Soho Lounge 16-Piece Square Set (now $53) for a bit of a modern touch, along with the Rockaway 12-Piece Set (now $40) if you want a simpler bundle.
Gibson also offers more coffeehouse-style collections, including the Casa Azul 16-Piece Set ($70) and the Elite Althea 16-Piece Set ($68). For less than $100, the brand is a steal.
Corelle has some wonderful white dinnerware bundles, with a touch of color that still honor the match-all lean. The brand’s Portofino Round Dinnerware Set for 6 ($100) and best-selling Ocean Blue Dinnerware Set for 6 ($68) are two of our favorites.
Its all-white dinnerware set ($98) is another 16-piece offering that deserves much acclaim (not to mention, a set that’ll last for years). Corelle also has some of the most precious cereal and soup bowls ($28) we’ve ever seen.
The best part? All Corelle dinnerware is chip and scratch-resistant. One of our editors has had her set for 10 years and has still yet to damage any pieces.
As one of our favorite dinnerware set brands to add to your wedding registry, Pfaltzgraff has some wonderful textured sets that are sure to garner compliments from your guests. Notably, its Trellis White 16-Piece Dinnerware Set ($70) and Bella 12-Piece Dinnerware Set (now $90) add a glimmer of farmhouse-style and earthiness to your home, respectively.
We thought we had our two favorites on deck but then we saw the unique Cheateau Cream 16-Piece Stoneware Dinnerware Set (now $63) that has delicate scalloped detailing on the edge. For a elevated nature pattern that’s a more cherry take on your plain white set, consider the Annabelle 16-Piece Dinnerware Set ($90).
Lorenzo and Royalty Porcelain, two fine China brands, simply scream regal. Above all else, we cherish Royalty Porcelain’s Vintage 49-Piece Venezia Dinnerware Set ($300) and the Lorenzo Victoria 57-Piece Porcelain Dinnerware Set (now $200) — two bourgeous options Kate Middleton would approve of.
If you love the look of white and pink floral China, Lorenzo’s 57-Piece Sophie Dinnerware Set ($346) is the one for you. The brand’s 57-Piece Dora Dinnerware Set ($319) is unlike any other, too, with its white and brushed gold charm.
For designer-looking dinnerware sets with a more affordable ticket price, you can’t beat Stone Lain. Not only does the brand have multiple options, but its soiree of items in each set is impressive.
We recommend the brand’s beautiful swirled 16-Piece Marble Porcelain Dinnerware Set ($90) and Modern Gold Splash 16-Piece Dinnerware Set ($100) for a hint of style that some other sets don’t offer. Plus, Stone Lain has gorgeous bone China options, including the Gabrielle 12-Piece Dinnerware Set ($100) and the Weave-Embossed 16-Piece Round Dinnerware Set (now $85).
Lenox is a surefire leader in the dinnerware sets department, known for its exquisite patterns and smooth-as-skin surfaces. We are all heart eyes about the brand’s Opal Innocence 5-Piece Place Setting ($200) and the Metallic 5-Piece Place Setting ($151) — investment-worthy options that will appeal to your inner host or hostess.
Plus, Lenox has a regal five-piece offering ($430) that is so showstopping, you’ll want to have dinner parties every evening. The timeless Vintage Jewel 5-Piece Place Setting ($190) is a brass-leaning unique offering, too.
As one of our favorite kitchen brands, Leeway Home has an exquisite collection of everything you’ll ever need to entertain. What’s great about Leeway Home is its make-your-own kits, allowing you to hand-pick exactly how many of each essential you’ll need.
However, The Full Way 44-Piece Set ($275) will save you a lot of money (and time picking out flatware and drink-ware individually). Available in several color-ways, you’ll be impressed with the quality and simplistic nature this brand provides.
We couldn’t not include Bloomingdale’s here. We find Villeroy & Boch’s luxe offerings to be one of our favorite treasures as far as dinnerware sets go.
Its luxury Cellini 12-Piece Dinnerware Set ($300) is second to none, along with the brand’s For Me 30-Piece Set ($760) should you want to splurge on a larger bundle. Not to mention, V&B has a must-buy Manufacture Rock Glassware ($120 for a set of four) and Artesano Eye Catcher Centerpiece ($400) to match — the latter absolutely perfect for appetizers.
When we think of Williams Sonoma, we think of add-to-cart steals for your home. Pillivuyt’s best-selling Eclectique Dinnerware Set with a soup plate ($128 for a five-piece) and the brand’s new Beaded Coupe Dinnerware Set with a cereal bowl ($428 for a 30-pack) are two lovely options for your dining table.
What’s more, the Wedgewood Renaissance Gold 5-Piece Dinnerware Set ($220) is great if you love the look of navy, gold and white, along with the San Francisco Coupe 16-Piece Dinnerware Set ($256) from fan-favorite brand Le Creuset.
Williams Sonoma also has a 16-Piece Dinnerware Set ($108) from its in-house brand, Open Kitchen, that’s just as lovely.
