The lines of formal and casual dinnerware can be a bit blurred at the point where they meet. Gone are the days when a wide rim white pattern is formal and a soft color oddly shaped pattern is casual. Throw out the box... it simply doesn't fit today's dinnerware enthusiast.

What we can say, is that formal dinnerware tends to be very well executed and carries a tighter, higher selection than perhaps a casual brand might have. What we think of formal is more of a traditional look.

And yes, they're often seen together as well.
