Although appropriate for informal table settings, pewter is soft, dents easily, and is suggested only for occasional use. When one set of flatware must meet all dining needs, the best choice is stainless steel in a simple pattern.

For those who plan to entertain both elegantly and casually, two sets of flatware are ideal: The ornamentation of the flatware, the color of the metal, and the texture of the material should be compatible with the design elements of the dinnerware and stemware.

Flatware decorated with curved lines is harmonious with dinnerware and stemware ornamented with rounded motifs. Flatware decorated with straight lines is compatible with dinnerware and stemware ornamented with angular motifs.

Emphasize a simple flatware pattern with ornate dinnerware and stemware. Precious metals, from the grayish-white hue of sterling silver, to the whitish-gray tone of silver plate, to the yellowish shade of verbal and gold electroplate, impart a formal luxuriant look to the table setting.

Alloyed metals like stainless steel and pewter are a deeper shade of gray and imbue the table setting with an informal ambience. The texture of precious metals is smooth and shiny, which pairs well with translucent porcelain, tightly woven linens, and shimmering crystal.

Compared to precious or plated metals, alloyed metals, namely stainless steel and pewter, have a coarse texture, which is compatible with opaque dinnerware, heavy glassware, and loosely woven linens. When metals with shiny and matte finishes are mixed, match the predominant texture to the surface of the table.

Flatware with a shiny finish is harmonious with reflective table tops, such as glass, lacquer, plastic, or polished mahogany. Flatware with a matte surface, such as hammered metal or cross-hatched Florentine, is compatible with the patterned grain of dull woods, such as pine or bleached oak.

The utensils rest heavier in the hand and promote a luxuriant feel. Luncheon-size flatware is the shortest length and balances the dimensions of the luncheon plate.

Light­weight flatware lacks balance; the knife and fork feel clumsy to hold and uncomfortable, almost as if they might bend. Fork tines are symmetrical, the edges are rounded, perfectly tapered, and polished on all sides.

Where the knife blade joins the handle, it does not reveal a gap of color. The term place setting is the number of utensils needed to eat a simple meal.

A seven-piece place setting includes an iced ­beverage spoon, a utensil popular in regions noted for hot, humid climates, or a seafood cocktail fork, popular where seafood is a favorite appetizer. The way one plans to entertain and the size of one's family determines the number of place settings to purchase.

Matching serving utensils found in a flatware set include: When matching serving utensils are purchased as a hostess set, a four-piece set typically contains a tablespoon, sugar spoon, gravy ladle, and cold-meat fork; a six-piece set usually contains a pie server, pierced tablespoon, solid tablespoon, cold-meat fork, butter spreader, and sugar spoon.

Stainless steel is sold primarily by the set, and when a flatware pattern is discontinued, generally replacements are not available. When matching a new set of flatware to an old pattern, make sure the shapes of the blades are similar.

French-style blades feature a curvaceous edge and a rounded, blunt tip. Place blades are made with a straight or modestly curved edge and a somewhat pointed tip.

The amount of silver used to make a pattern and the labor and time required to execute a particular design figure in the cost of the finished product. Engraved ornamentation cuts into metal and involves a loss of silver, so it is more expensive than chased decoration.

In continental style, the monogram is placed on the back of the handle because the fork is held tines downward to eat and the utensil is laid on the table in the same way. The exception is a highly ornate pattern that leaves little room on the front for a monogram; the letters are therefore placed on the back of the utensils.
