Disney Fans Will Love This Mickey Holiday Dinnerware Collection


Disney is known as the happiest place on earth, and Christmas is said to be the most wonderful time of the year, so it’s only fitting that the two would overlap from time to time. The merch masterminds at Disney aim to please, and their upcoming holiday dinnerware collection means you can have a Mickey Mouse Santa grace your dinner table for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, or any other festive celebration.

The new collection was announced this week on the Disney Parks Blog. While details are sparse for now, we know that new dinnerware, including serving dishes, dinner plates and bowls, will be coming to World of Disney stores at the end of this month.

“The designs are festive yet practical,” Roger Dressen, Merchandise Product Developer for Seasonal Merchandise at Disney Parks said on the blog. “We chose neutral colors so they can be easily incorporated into guests’ existing dinnerware collections.”


The line-up is definitely festive: There’s a serving plate that says “Happy, Jolly, Merry;” plates that read “Oh So Jolly;” and a “Merry” bowl that looks perfect for serving desserts.

The two World of Disney stores—located in Downtown Disney District at Disneyland and Disney Springs in Disney World—are reopening on October 26 and 27 after a design overhaul, and will be the first to carry the Disney Parks Holiday Collection. (Later in the season, the line will come to more Disney stores and ShopDisney.com.)

According to the Disney blog, the stores have been turned into “distinctly Disney retail environments that are contemporary, immersive and fun places to shop.” Aside from dinnerware, the upcoming holiday collection includes stockings, ugly sweaters, home decoration like nutcrackers and pillows, and Mickey Mouse ears.

Robinson Home Adds Dinnerware, Flatware To CraftKitchen Line

At the recent New York Tabletop Market, Robinson Home Products unveiled the addition of flatware and dinnerware segments to its CraftKitchen brand of housewares.

CraftKitchen is designed to specifically engage the Millennial “foodie,” and the addition of flatware and dinnerware was a natural extension to the brand’s original launch of kitchen tools, gadgets, cutlery and cookware items, the company said.

The new dinnerware line includes multi-purposes pieces, is made of porcelain and has a classic rim treatment. The core pieces are available in sets of four, including salad, dinner and appetizer plates in prices ranging from $14.99 to $29.99. The line also includes a range of bowls, including dinner, individual, side and dip bowls ranging in price from $6.99 to $29.99. It also includes a mug for $19.99.

The flatware is available in selections for boxed sets, carded box sets and open stock. The 45-piece boxed sets are available in four styles: Jovana, Arlo, Satin Arlo and Weslyn. Each set is crafted in a 4.0 gauge, made of 18/0 material and has a suggested retail of $99.99. The six-piece carded box set is available in the Classic pattern with two finishes, mirror or satin. Each is 4.0 gauge. The open stock options come in the Classic pattern in the mirror or satin finish in 4.0 gauge.

“Craft Kitchen was designed with discerning consumers in mind that want to bring the trending craft food and craft beverage restaurant experience home for their personal entertaining,” said Barbara Alonge, business director, tabletop, Robinson Home Products. “We realize that consumers want stylish and modern products that have roots in tradition. With that focus always in mind, we have incorporated elements in our new flatware and dinnerware lines that are trendy and new, yet familiar and timeless.”

In addition to the launch of flatware and dinnerware, CraftKitchen will also debut an accompanying website in the coming weeks that guides consumers through the CraftKitchen experience.

I bought an 18-piece dinnerware set from AmazonBasics — it’s surprisingly high quality for only $40

One of the few kitchen essentials everyone needs — whether or not they cook — is a dinnerware set.

About a year ago I bought a cheap 18-piece dinnerware set from Amazon’s store band, AmazonBasics. I didn’t go into the $40 purchase expecting ultra-high quality, and it’s definitely not fine china, but the quality is a lot higher than I expected. Amazon also packaged the set with care so that nothing arrived already broken, which is always a concern of mine when ordering anything fragile online.

The porcelain dinnerware set comes with six 5.5″ bowls, six 7.5″ dessert plates, and six 10.5″ dinner plates — the bowls are the perfect size for soup and cereal and the dinner plates are generously sized as well.

Everything in the set is dishwasher, freezer, and microwave safe. I don’t have a dishwasher in my apartment, but I’m going to take Amazon at its word since the plates have held up to frequent microwave and freezer use. And even though I use the pieces from this set daily, none of the plates or bowls have chipped, scratched, or cracked.

When I was researching which dinnerware set to buy, two things ultimately sold me on the AmazonBasics set: affordability and versatility. I didn’t want to feel guilty if I broke one of the pieces, and although I live alone, I wanted a set that was good for my everyday use but big enough for entertaining since I like to cook for my friends. AmazonBasics’ set checked both boxes. I could see it also being a great choice for families with kids, recent college graduates, and really anyone who doesn’t want to spend a lot on fine china.

If you’re ready to upgrade from mismatched plates and bowls and don’t want to spend more than $50 on a durable set, you’ll find a lot to like here.

Year & Day is the dinnerware startup you’ve seen all over Instagram — here’s why its gorgeous tableware has already …

I’m a sucker for a beautiful table setting. Whenever I go to a nice restaurant or event, I’m almost always as interested in the dinnerware and florals as I am in the actual dinner because of how they shape the mood and atmosphere of the space. They can make the most simple meals feel special, or match the elegance and thoughtfulness of an eight-course culinary journey.

As people move past the phase of their lives where they move apartments every year and make do with hand-me-downs or the cheapest home goods they could find, beautiful matching utensils and plates become just one marker of true adulthood and stability. You, too, can make meal time more intentional, whether you’re honestly just reheating last night’s take-out, or hosting a dinner party with your best friends.


Year Day

When Year Day founder Kathryn Duryea moved to San Francisco, she was ready to stock her new apartment with plates and flatware, but often found the options lacking — boring, expensive, and of poor quality. Long interested in the rituals of the table and entertaining, she began taking glaze-making classes, researching the industries of ceramics, flatware, and glass, and meeting with vendors who shared her vision of high-quality, beautiful, and durable dinnerware.

She found a team in Portugal that had been crafting fine stoneware for hundreds of years, and in November 2017, launched Year Day. In less than a year, it’s been a direct-to-consumer hit, selling out of product on four occasions and experiencing average revenue growth of 40% per month.

Year Day sells three types of products: ceramic plates, bowls, and serving pieces in four different colors ($6.50-$13/piece); stainless steel flatware in polished or matte finishes ($9-$18/piece); and Italian glassware ($12-$15/piece). The brand first caught my eye on Instagram, where every image of its smooth blush and dark navy arrangements had me glaring at my own AmazonBasics plate with disdain. It sounds strange that the basic vessels responsible for holding and transporting my food can incite such strong feelings, but that’s the Year Day Effect, I suppose.


Year Day

The designs are as simple and clean as you can imagine. Sturdy, rimless plates sit alongside balanced forks, knives, and spoons, and you can’t forget the delicate, clear wine glasses. The ceramics are single-fired by Portuguese artisans using locally sourced clay, then finished with semi-matte colors that are especially eye-catching when you mix and match pieces. They have substantial weight, but aren’t so heavy to be impractical for everyday use.

The flatware, which I have a set of in sleek matte black, is also made in Portugal, with 18/10 stainless steel. The knives have forged blades, so they’re durable and will keep their edge longer. The glassware, an entertaining staple, is made in Italy with a breakage-resistant stem and chemical-free glass. Everything at Year Day is dishwasher-friendly, not just pretty dinnerware you can only look at and wash delicately after the one time of the year you do use it. In the end, it’s practical (as it should be), and you should put it to use every day and every year.

You can buy individual pieces and sets of each category, but you can and should also take advantage of the site’s “Build My Complete Set” feature, which will clear up any confusion about what to buy for your lifestyle. In just a few clicks, you’ll have a full set of dinnerware to perform and dazzle through any meal or drink you enjoy, for years to come.
