would think we were Greek with all the plates we manage to get through! So I was very pleased to be sent a selection
for review, we were down to the last few so it was getting close to having our
dinner on side plates or eating out of takeaway boxes I can tell you.
do not want to spend a huge amount on my dishes because inevitably they slowly
get smashed just like their predecessors!
I want them to look nice and be functional for the short time they chose
to co-operate and remain whole. The dinner
set range at BHS is great as they vary in price from very affordable to a
bit more fancy.
picked out the Black/White Stripe 12 piece dinner set which was very reasonable
for £24.99. As a family of four this
was just perfect for us. They have a
few different designs at £24.99 including a vintage styled Paris design with
sweet butterflies that is very nice.
if you are willing to spend a bit more the Denby range is very good, it seems
more hardwearing (it might be its special glaze!) so possibly next time I
invest in a dinner set I might experiment with spending more and seeing if they
last longer. The Denby Black Pasta
bowls (£25.00) we were also sent certainly seemed a quality item; my hubbie
only ever wants to eat out of them from now on! Fortunately they are durable enough for everyday use.
do hold a decent amount of food, we regularly have pasta, as it’s an easy meal
that the boys will eat, but using our usual bowls I never felt my tummy was
well catered for! These bowls hold much
more and the pasta looks appealing in such an attractive bowl.
my items arrived intact, always a worry having dishes sent through the post but
these were in protective bubble wrap and survived the journey.
