With many dinnerware sets available that overwhelms a buyer, make sure to purchase only what you need. When you intend to serve only breakfast for example, you really don't need a complete set of dinnerware.
Buy large dinnerware if you frequently host birthday parties or other events. Simple and classical designs work great with most events. Keep in mind that you can use "period" dinnerware for serving breakfast, saving the larger dinnerware for bigger group occasions.
Buy sets that are easy to clean and very durable, especially if these will be intended for everyday use.
