Tablecloth and runner
A tablecloth or runner is a great way to mark a special occasion. A tablecloth covers the entire table, while a runner is a slimmer option that runs across the middle of the table, leaving space for your table setting places.
Our dinner sets come with everything you need for serving and dining. Most sets come with main plates, bowls, and side plates. Whether it’s an intimate tea for two, or you’re squeezing the family in for Christmas, we’ve got sets to suit all numbers.
Elevate your serving game. Choose from a range of serving bowls, platters, and nibble bowls or perhaps mix it up. With a pop of pattern and texture, these serveware pieces are great conversation starters too.
The cutlery is an essential part of any dinner party. There’s a range of designs available, from simple and sleek to quirky curves, handles and finer finishes. Similar to dinnerware, we have cutlery sets with 2 to 12 place settings.
If you know the drink will be flowing, make sure you’ve got the glassware you need. Tumblers and glasses for wine, water and beer are essential – but you could also invest in some champagne flutes, latte glasses or drinking goblets.

Types of tableware
Our dinner sets are predominantly made from either stoneware or porcelain. Both are ceramics, but there are subtle differences in construction and durability.
Stoneware tends to be a more durable and waterproof choice due to being constructed at high temperatures. This also leaves a thick and glossy finish.
Porcelain is stronger than both earthenware and stoneware and makes for an even longer-lasting dinner set. The main difference, however, is that it is translucent, while the others are opaque.
Dine in style
As well as the table setting essentials, you want to make sure you’ve got the table to match.
Extendable tables are a popular choice if you’re in need of more space for special occasions – without giving up room every day.
