There’s nothing like that little adrenaline rush after stumbling upon something cute on the Internet—like the perfect set of block-printed napkins—and realizing it’s dirt cheap. “Good deals” doesn’t really get at it; we’re talking a dinner plate that’s the price of a latte. And as we’re approaching festive dinner party season, there’s no better time to refresh your tabletop collection with affordable dinnerware. Now you have even more to look forward to than your flawless roasted turkey.
Raise a Glass
A glassware refresh is always a good idea. We’re starting with the Duralex set that reminds us of chic Paris cafés and comes out to under $3 per glass. The fact that they’re pretty much unbreakable gives you even more bang for your buck.
Layering Is Key
Why are table linens always way more expensive than we want them to be? If you’re not in the mood to invest in cloth napkins (because, let’s be honest, it can feel a bit indulgent), Quince’s set is top-quality 100% flax linen and only $30 for a set. And you should probably consider woven placemats from World Market aka the Internet’s best-kept secret.
Serve It Up
Sure, a single dinner plate is usually affordable, but when you’re buying six, it adds up. These picks are at digestible prices even if you’re setting a table for 20. The priciest one is $13, from CB2’s new collection of Gianfranco Frattini designs. For Italian-designed porcelain, you really can’t argue with that.
Complete the Look
For the less urgent but equally important items ($4 dipped-wax taper candles and teakwood salad spoons), we’ve got you covered. Target’s French bistro–style 20-piece flatware set is not one to snooze on at just $40.
