(ii) Shape:-

Food is all about entertainment. An eye catching food palate always lifts up your mood. Accordingly the shape of a serving plate or bowl adds dramatic effect to the dining table. I always prefer to buy uneven shaped serving plates or bowls or dinner plates than the regular ones. These uneven shaped serving plates or bowls always invite appreciation from my guests.

(iii) Size:-

“Atithi devo bhava”- The guest is God! we always consider our guest as God and love to entertain them with ample food. Sufficient amount of food is being prepared accordingly. However, you require the right size of serving plates/ bowls to present your food. A different size of such serving plates/ bowls would going to solve your purpose.

(iv) Colour:-

A dramatic ambiance can be created by placing some eye-catching crockery and tableware on the dining table. I like to draw my guest’s attention through color of the crockery and tableware. During summer, lime punch color or aqua blue color suits the ambiance, whereas colors like orange or sienna suit in winter. I suggest to keep the season in mind before buying crockery and tableware .

(v) Durability:-

I always do a minimum research work regarding the durability of each vendor’s products. This helps to identify whether the products has the ability to be used in the oven, dishwasher or microwave.
