Etsy is definitely one of our favorite spots for one-of-a-kind decor pieces. It's a literal treasure trove of unique home pieces, from artwork and accent lighting to pillows and throws. And if you're searching for good tabletop items, you won't be disappointed. Handmade ceramics are one of the very best things to find on Etsy; there are so many gorgeous pieces to choose from, and often times at really affordable price points.
When it comes to ceramics, it's good to look for pieces that might work well in your everyday lifestyle. Love your morning coffee ritual? Then there's nothing better than a pair of matching handmade mugs to share with you S.O. in the am. If the two of you are big entertainers, a mix of serving platters in different shapes and sizes will make sharing meals "family style" so much more enjoyable.
Handmade ceramics can sometimes be more of an investment than regular, run-of-the-mill pieces, but adding a few handmade statement pieces is really going to help make your tabletop feel special. It's also great to know that you're supporting small businesses and artisans in their craft. If you're just starting out and are on a budget, you might want to go with a set of classic, matching white plates for the bulk of your dinnerware, but add color and texture with handmade accent pieces like platters, dessert plates and other pieces. You can gradually add to your collection as time goes on. Your dinner table vibe may be slightly mismatched, but will have totally authentic and creative look.
