Versatile Designs

Whether you want to add a classic, neutral touch to your dinner table or want to enliven it with color, the salad plates in this collection deliver. For a neutral look, choose from an array of white or ivory appetizer plates in this collection. A neutral hue doesn't mean these plates are ordinary, however. They're enriched with design details that add intrigue to your table. For example, the rims of these plates showcase an array of designs, including beaded detailing, subtle, monochromatic stripes or a touch of color. The shape of the plate itself may serve as the design detail. Scalloped rims add lovely detail to some salad plates in this collection.

This collection showcases color and pattern as well. First, choose from solid-hued plates available in a range of shades, including blue, green and red. To interject even more personality at each place setting, opt for a patterned style. Modern medallions, Southwest-inspired designs, coastal-themed patterns and feminine florals are just some of your options. Plus, this collection features plenty of seasonal plates perfect for holiday gatherings. Discover red and green plaid appetizer plates perfect for a Christmas celebration, bunny-adorned plates for Easter dinner or richly hued fall plates featuring autumn leaves or pumpkins. Add a touch of seasonal decor to your tablescape with these options.

Durable Construction

Regardless of the style of salad plate you choose, you'll be investing in a durable design. These salad plates come in several constructions. For a casual table, consider melamine salad plates. These shatterproof plates are dishwasher -safe and you won't have to worry about them breaking when dining outdoors. For added weight, consider stoneware or ironstone plates. These styles feature a glazed finish that preserves the intricacy and beauty of the design.

Salad plates serve as the finishing touch to any place setting. Select a plate style that complements your other dinnerware. Consider your table linens as well so that you can create a seamless look. With the right plates in your cabinet, you'll always be ready to host a dinner party.
