Step 2: Pick your Party
The size of the dinnerware set you choose depends on how you plan on using it. For everyday use, it makes sense to take the number of people living in your house and add a few extra for when friends stop by. For a family dinner, take the number of people in your and your spouse’s family and add a few sets to be safe. The same rules apply to special occasion dinnerware. If you’d like, start out with a few sets and add on over the years.
