Even the most perfectly-prepared meals get a boost from gorgeous presentation -- but that doesn't mean those plates need to be new. Instead, turn to Replacements.com to fill out (or start) a collection of vintage, gently-used dinnerware, serving pieces, and flatware.
One of our favorite patterns: Kutani Crane by Wedgwood, with a bold, striking design that will make them the hit of your next dinner party (second only to your flawlessly executed vegetarian menu, of course). (Replacements.com, prices vary based on pattern and piece)
