A nautical home would not be complete without a nautical dinnerware set. Each evening you would come home from your job and make yourself your favourite meal.
There is nothing quite like plating up a hard earned meal on your best crockery and dinner set, especially if it is nautical themed.
In this comparison we look at some of the prettiest and best nautical and mermaid themed dinner sets for your nautically themed home.
It would be very hard and unfair to say which are our favourites of these beautiful nautically themed and coloured dinner sets.
Instead we're just going to talk through some of their other positives, how they were made, price of the set and other opinions.
Best Looking Nautical Dinner Set
We will still go ahead and tell you our favourite designed dinner set though. They are all beautiful and all coloured perfectly to match a nautical home, whether you're looking for a minimally themed set or something that brings more ocean to your dinner table, they should suffice.
Our favourite two are the Bonplet Toscana and the darker Gibson Bella Soho. Both completely different in design but offer something visually different too.
The Bonplet is light, looks like movements of water has been painted on the white ceramic dinner set and the Gibson Bella Soho has a darker and more bold look to it. If you're interested in square dinner plates and something that really stands out, the latter might be more suited to you.
We could easily see this working well in a lightly nautical and ocean themed home, as the dinner set is dark, bold, stands out and would suit a contemparary styled interior.
If you are looking for a dinner set which has a specific ocean theme though, the Sardine Run by Jersey Pottery is will be perfect for you.
Each piece has a beautiful fish and sardine design around the edge over the top of a simple white background, it's elegant and we always love to see sea life on our belongings.
Most Practical Ocean Dinner Sets
If you are after more practical dinnerware sets, then take a look at the Melamine Crackle Turquoise Dinner Set. Because of the material it is made out of, you will get long lasting and more hard wearing plates and bowls.
Compared to the other dinner sets, it's basically a form of plastic, so shouldn't break as easily. If you're not in to melamine, or are trying to reduce plastic purchases and use in your life, stay clear.
If you don't require any cups, which we didn't when we were looking for a new ocean dinner set, then look in to the Sangler and Jersey Pottery. You will get two plate sizes and bowls which complete each 12 piece set. That means 4 side plates, 4 main dinner plates and 4 bowls.
Because of our huge cup, mug and glass collection we were better off with one of these. If you require a full dinner set then make sure to look in to the other sets.

This is a review of the Bonplet Toscana 12 Piece Stoneware Dinner Set
The Bonplet Toscana 12 Piece Stoneware Dinner Set is a whimsical marble effect dining set. It surprisingly suits a mermaid home with its sways of blues, greys, beige and yellow tones that embody life at the ocean in one elegant marbled effect. It is subtle, gentle and moody in its design.
The dining set are stoneware and the marble effect is hand painting and dipping the plate. The pastel colours swirl around the plate and each one is slightly different. If you don't like traditional or modern but love a classical yet classy feel to your interiors then this is a lovely option for a mermaid's home.
This is a dining set that can be placed in the dishwasher or microwave.

The Sänger Palm Beach 12 piece Diner Set is an exotic and tropical looking dinner set. It includes 4 dinner plates, 4 dessert plates and 4 bowls. It has a deep blue/green colour surrounded by light blue.
The crazed-effect known as brittle lacquer contracts during drying which forms a pattern of delicate cracks. This ads a vintage touch to the tableware. The colours appear similar to that of a beautiful conch shell. It is eyecatching and perfect it you like to host parties.

This is a review of the Jersey Pottery Sardine Run 12 Piece Dinner Set
The Jersey Pottery Sardine Run Dinner set is an exquiste set of pottery. It contains 4 dinner plates, 4 side plates and 4 bowls. Each is made with a sardine run design around the plates and around the outer of the bowls.
The design is cute and playful yet providing simplicity and beauty to your dining table. These have to be one of the most mermaid home suited dining sets out there. A very popular site for underwater lovers is a sardine run as it attracks all sorts of other marine wildlife. The fish are simple designed with a distinct eye and fanned tail, the glaze of the pottery also provides a fish scale appearance to the fish as they swim around the plate.
Jersey Pottery is a highly established pottery brand that prizes itself on producing quality ceramics, often inspired by nature and the environment. There are also a large choice of other kitchen items such as coasters, table mats, pitchers and other decorative bowls and plates. These are not within this particular set but can be bought seperately with the same sardine run design. The design really is a special one, evoking the blue and white colours of the impressive and vast Atlantic Ocean that the sardine run takes place within.
Made from Earthenware, this dining set is particularly durable, it can be used in the microwave, freezer or popped into the dishwasher. This particular dining set would make a wonderful wedding gift for the mer - people in your life who are about to get hitched, or as a housewarming gift.

This is a review of the Melamine Crackle Set of 12 Turquoise Dinner Set
The Melamine Crackle Dinnerware Set of 12 includes 4 dinner plates, 4 salad plates and 4 bowls. The appearance of this dinner set for me is a contrast between something rustic but something beautiful crisp and ocean like. The dinner set have a crackle apperance that lots chic in design. They are made from 100% melamine which means it is a form of resin rather than cermamic. However it looks more like expensive glazed pottery and keeps with the extra sneeky ability to be much more user friendly and durable. Making this a longlasting dinner set.
It is quite an unusual appearance, I especially quite like it because it reminds me of the up close texture of a whale up close. This is a durable dinner set which you can put in the dish washer, however you do not want to use it in the microwave. You do have a choice of colour options as well as blue, such as red and white. As a mermaid home, blue is definately the colour choice to go for. Its durability means that you can use it for outdoor dining as well as indoor.
- Beautiful design
- Looks very expensive
- Long lasting
- Suitable for outdoor use as well as indoor use
- Cannot use in microwave
- No next day delivery
The Melamine dinner set is a beautiful yet functional dinner set that will last for many family gathering in your mermaid home or outside dining in your mermaid themed garden.
