If flatware sounds a little, well...flat, remember that beautiful flatware adds the
perfect sparkling touch to your table. From durable sterling silver (which actually
looks better the more you use it) to easy-care stainless steel, today's flatware

country or downright funky. The classic five-piece place setting is your starting
point - serving pieces like carving forks and gravy ladles can complete your
flatware registry.

Kate, I agree I love the Yeoward as well. My heart says "Sterling Silver " put my pocket says "Stainless Steel". So if I must go with Stainless it's Christofle all the way!

Sarah Dennis said...

To me I just want a fork or knife that works. To some people though a nice fork or knife is what makes them happy.
