As I've been planning my holiday tablescape for this year, I've become obsessed with gold flatware.
There's just something about the gold, it adds a little glitz and glamour to the table.

Earlier this week I shared the Gray Malin Photography Collections and mentioned that I'd LOVE to have a print from La Dolce Vita collection (specifically 'Positano').
Today, I share with you my favorite gold plated flatware collections. And yes, these are also on my list for Santa.
1. Dwell Studio 5 Piece Oro Cutler $100 set
2. Gorham Argento Gold Luster 5 Piece Set Zappos: Originally $200 Set/ Now on sale $99.95
3. Soiree Flatware Place Setting Williams-Sonoma $90 Set
4. Doma Flatware Anthropologie $98 Set
5. Cutipol Rondo Gold Cutlery 5 Pcs Shophorne.com $85 Set
6. Rose Gold Flatware West Elm $112 for 4 place settings- Great Deal!
The Rose Gold Flatware by West Elm is a steal with four place settings for $112. If budget weren't a factor, I'd choose the Gorham Argento Gold Luster set on Zappos. I love that the knife is also gold plated and the quality appears top notch. Of course, some would say, if you're only using the gold flatware a few times a year to glitz and glam up a holiday table, then there's no need to invest in a tremendously expensive set of gold. You can achieve the same goal with a less expensive setting.
If you're one that plans to stay gold year after year, then invest in better quality as it does take a bit more work to maintain the gold flatware from tarnishing.
Ballard Designs' Southern Living Fairhope comes brand new with a vintage patina appearance. They could easily pass as a family heirloom. It's possible to have each piece monogrammed. They don't offer as bright of a gold as some of the other choices but it may save you the trouble of having to maintain the items from tarnish.
Either way, I don't think you can go wrong with gold at the table! It ups the glamour factor to the nth degree...now...if only Santa is reading this! (hint hint).
Do you already own gold flatware? How do you find the maintenance? Which do you like out of the choices above?
Santa, if you're reading, I'd like selection #2!
