Charm Flatware: Love It or Hate It?

I hate to say it but I find flatware incredibly interesting. Often overlooked but essential to any formal table setting, the knives, forks, and spoons can make or break a table. At first glance, I hated this Charm flatware because I thought it was a set of different colors. When I realized the sets come in only one color, I totally saw them in a new light. The red would look gorgeous on a Valentine's Day table! What do you think? Is this flatware simply fab or horribly drab?

My grandmother had a large set of this flatware when I was a child. She most likely bought it new in the 50's... but she used it for the grandchildren later on. And she had pink ones! They were so pretty and her sets never lost their luster. I looked for it after she had passed away... and never could find it... cause it would have came home with me had I found it. I love all the fun kitchen stuff from the 1950's.

I really like them. Although I prefer plain stainless steel but once in a while i like to see something different.

I agree with beep. I liked better when I thought it was multi-colored. I think the one color would be boring.

It's pretty, but I have a pet peeve/ paranoia about the food or gunk flatware which has components added on to it can carry. Single-pieced stainless steel are the ones for me! No worries about mystery gunk while you're eating.

Not so much. I like classic silver and plain white dishes. I think the colored handles would distract the focus from the food. But these could come in handy if dinner was less than perfect!

I really love this, and agree with beeps and emalove that I'd like it if it were multi-colored. I've got the flatware obsession too, and my fiance is even worse. I know just where to look for him when I lose him at any kitchen store.

Cute, but totally not my style. Plastic handled flatware always feels so cheap. I prefer the heft of solid stainless steel flatware.

Ohhh, I think they're very pretty. I love the red, blue and cream. The cream would be lovely for a more classic setting and the red or blue would be great for parties! I think they're very unique and cool while still being very pretty!

I think I'd like them better if the handles weren't squared off - looks like it would be uncomfortable to hold.

I LOVE them. I'd actually like it if the set was multi-colored too, Beeps...I think it would look colorful and lovely with the right place settings.

Actually ,I would like it if the set were multi-colored. I guess I'd just have to but more than one set!

I, too, have an odd fixation with flatware. I absolutely love these! They're incredibly unique and could add so much to a table.

I love it! I especially like the blue but I think the read one or the cream one would work best in my dining room. Thanks Yum!
