It's a fairly obvious thing to say that in order to have a perfect dining experience, the food needs to be produced to the highest quality possible. After all, if the food doesn't taste too good, the experience won't be a pleasant one. However, it shouldn't be forgotten that the type of tableware chosen will have a huge effect on the perception of the food, and can go some way to making good food taste excellent.
The good news is that there is a huge range of dinnerware styles to choose from, and each can add its own style to the dining experience.

One material that is frowned upon but which can add some excellent design to a table is melamine, which not only has the advantage of providing vivid colors, but is also very durable, which can make it a great choice for dinner parties where children are present.
Another thing to think about is using an ethnic feel to a table, even if the food is fairly standard. Chinese-designed tableware can add some real color and charm, and can go well with western food as well as the oriental variety.
In the end, don't be constricted by the usual choices and look further afield at some of the more offbeat patterns, designs and colors in order to a unique feel to your dining experience.
