The Smart Way of Choosing Your Own Dinnerware Set

A Dinnerware set is one of the most important things in a table setting. Choosing the best dinnerware set entails some variables to consider.

A dinnerware set is used when serving and eating food. It comprises mainly of 4 or more pieces of the following:
• Plates
• Salad plates
• Soup bowls
• Cereal bowls
• Bread plates
• Butter plates
• Cups
• Saucers

Some dinnerware sets include extra accessories like platters, pepper and salt shakers, creamers and napkin rings, etc. Here are some variable things to consider in buying good dinnerware sets:
Purpose
Know your purpose before buying good dinnerware sets. These sets can be for everyday usage or for special occasions. It depends mainly on your lifestyle, from vintage, casual and contemporary to formal styling.

Most middle-income families use casual dinnerware sets. This is has a casual look, having simple designs, colors or patterns. A casual dinnerware set has more functional style; it can resist chipping and it is dishwasher safe.

A formal dinnerware will accent the dining table of a high class society. China made with elegant design is best serve for formal gatherings and dinner parties. It is still best to choose large setting for large gatherings to accommodate guests. Most formal sets are hand washed and stored with proper care.

Moreover, festive dinnerware sets showcase a holiday dining meal that is even more inviting. An example of this is a Christmas holiday collection that comes in cheery or holy patterns.

Materials Used
Dinnerware set materials is made of any of the following:
• Stone
• Crystal
• Glass
• Porcelain
• Plastic
• and Ivory

The material used should last for years or even a lifetime. It should also be durable and chip resistant.

Plastic dinnerware sets are cheap, while the glass type is more expensive. Glass dinnerware has become more luxurious and classy. However, they are more prone to breakage. Consider also the cleaning material in order to avoid scratching the design.

Design, Color, Size
Dinnerware designs can be:

• Color banded
• Floral
• Scroll
• Geometric
• Stripped patterns
• and clear

Some sets infuse warm tones and contemporary patterns. Back-to-nature shades receive great attention such as green, orange, blue, beige and yellow. Amongst the latest style in China are the flared rims having asymmetrical edges, along with plain dishes as well as swirls, dots and lines.

Hand painted versions is matched with solid-colored plates. Most manufacturers use a lead-free paint and dyes for safety purposes. At current, most of dinnerware makers offer designs that are FDA approved.

Most dinnerware dishes come in round shapes while most oval shaped dinnerware dishes are seen in Mexican food restaurants. Different sizes are available in the market for a new look.

Use your Creativity
The choice of a design is the reflection of a person's taste. It is a fun way to mix and match colors while being practical. An attractive dinnerware set is usually more inviting and pleasing to the eyes.

Extras
Companies nowadays offer attractive boxes. Some accompaniments such as tea kettles, napkin holders or kitchen clocks attract customers. Look for sets that have some extra pieces. This is to get the most out of your money. Many manufacturers also offer additional accessories, having no extra cost for the set.

Cost
The cost depends on the number of pieces in a set and its pattern styles. Four to six place setting ranges from $80 to $100. Dinnerware sets which cost under $50 is perfect for the family's everyday dining.

Hand painted, glazed pottery and figural designs will costs over $150. Aside from this, bigger and popular sets include the following:

where is an afordable and easy place to set up a web site?

I want to set up a web site that will be used for buisness. I want to accept paypal payments to acsess info.
Where would be a cheap place that can get me in buisness.
I saw Yahoo could set me up at $40 a month, but I'm hoping for more like 5

If you are a true novice and don't want to spend much time learning how to make a site, I would suggest the current super-popular MySpace. You can quickly get your information up for all your friends to see.

If you are interested in something more, but still fairly simple try GeoCities or Yahoo.

If you are willing to learn HTML I would suggest ATSPACE.COM. You can create a website for FREE up to 50MBs in size. I have two websites through them and the uptime is great. NO ADS, NO BANNERS. You'll need an ftp program to upload your stuff. There's a good free one for personal use called "FTP Explorer". Of course you'll either need to learn HTML or use one of the WYSIWYG programs like FrontPage or DreamWeaver to actually design your site. e-mail me if you need some help...

If you want your own domain and have it hosted, I suggest ReadyHosting. You get 1GB of space unlimted e-mail accounts, FTP access and domain name registration all for $99 a year.
