Set Your Table with Oversized Dinner Plates

Create a generous expanse at your dinner table with oversized dinner plates. Even if you keep your portion sizes the same, using a larger plate can lend a sense of visual drama to the tabletop that makes the entire meal seem extravagant and unique. Use these plates every day for a personal statement or bring them out when you want to make an impression on guests or highlight a special meal. Designed for proportion, these plates still offer a great selection of styles. Choose a wide rim for bread accompaniments. Pick coupe plates to serve heaps of pasta or pour lots of sauce. For more creativity, take a second look at square plates to see how oversized dinner plates can add flair to your tabletop.

When to Use Oversized Dinner Plates

Just like with any dinnerware, you don't need a special occasion to use the pieces you love. You can set the table with oversized dinner plates any time the mood strikes.

  • Use these plates every day. You can use them as your usual dinnerware and bring them to the table for every meal or assign them to dinner, when you might make several sides that deserve extra space on the plate.
  • Reserve them for brunch or buffet-style service. Some home chefs love to set up a buffet for Sunday breakfast or invite friends over for brunch on a Saturday. Oversized dinner plates are perfect for these occasions.
  • Use oversized plates for special events, especially the ones that feature lots of sides, sauces or seconds. Try them at a barbecue, a sports game everyone watches at your place or when it's your turn to host the neighborhood pasta night.

Coupe, Square and Other New Plate Formats

Explore the different sizes and shapes available at Williams Sonoma. Choosing oversized dinner plates can be a fun chance to indulge your creative side when you see the styles you can bring home today.

  • These plates are a classic way to get more plate space. These dinner plates are rimless, featuring instead a lightly curved edge that keeps liquids and sauces on the plate.
  • Square plates are whimsical, a touch unexpected and do double duty as serveware if the occasion requires. The Open Kitchen line is designed for versatility and accessibility, so be sure to check it out while shopping.
  • A plate with a wide rim has always been welcome in homes where bread lovers gather around the table. Sop up sauce, dip into soup or complement a salad with a hunk of your favorite loaf. The rim lets you fill the plate with the main dish and still have space for bread.
