I have to admit, I was definitely on the side of keeping all the silverware matching, but after accidentally mixing one setting, I was totally sold! The look is so much more interesting and actually highlights the intricate patterns of the antique forks, knives, and spoons. Trust me, after polishing 100+ sets by hand, I was happy to let those patterns shine!

Turns out that Anthropologie and Pottery Barn offer mismatched vintage silverware sets to buy--for quite a high price, might I add!

So for couples and hosts looking to do something unique and unexpected at their place settings, try combining old silverware sets or renting them from Something Vintage. :)
