Let’s talk about sets
Beautiful dinnerware makes everything look and taste better.
The festive time of year has arrived and now is the perfect time to think about adding to your existing dinnerset or perhaps even taking the plunge and starting anew.
We’ve highlighted below some things to think about before you take the plunge.
How will you use it?
Will this be for everyday, special occasions or do you want it to cover the lot? We cook and eat differently during the week, so think about the pieces you’ll need to serve.
Choose your pieces
Your day-to-day needs will normally be covered by 3 key pieces – side plate, dinner plate and bowl. A complete dinner set can be up to 6 pieces – side plate, starter plate, dinner plate, soup bowl, pasta bowl and dessert dish.
Once you’ve decided the size and function of your dinnerset now’s the time to choose the silhouette. We’d recommend starting with the dinner plate available in 3 sizes and designs – Flared Dinner Plate, Dinner Plate and the Flared Plate Small.
Side plate choice is a matter of function and versatility. The Salad Plate has a bigger rim that allows for a dressing or sauce (and you can also use it for desserts) while the Bread Plate has a flat profile and low rim perfect for bread and pastries.
Main sized bowls will be used all the time – salads, pastas and takeaways. Our Pebble Bowl Medium is our top seller for a reason – it’s the perfect hybrid between plate and a bowl (it’s also terrific for those of us fond of the odd TV dinner). If you require a little more height from your bowl, we think the Noodle Cereal or Flared Cereal ideal for soups and salads.
Finally, don’t forget about a smaller bowl. They’re ideal for serving dessert, snacks or for your morning bowl of muesli. The Pebble Bowl Cereal is a favourite but also consider the Noodle Small and Flared Bowl Medium.

Our plates come in a choice of 10 colours – all softer and tending towards neutral as this makes your food the hero and also limits glaze scratching. Our bowls allow you to fully express yourself with the complete Mud Australia colour palette.
Bring in a sense of your own personality and don’t be afraid to mix shades.
Personally, we prefer our dinnerware in more neutral tones then add tints and stronger colours with smaller bowls and serving pieces.
