The visual appeal of the meal you're serving is almost as important as how good it tastes. And any superstar chef will tell you that a lot of that visual appeal has to do with your serving pieces and your dinnerware. You can do all that creative plating like you see on the cooking shows but when you change the dinnerware it also completely changes the look of the food.

For centuries we've been eating on round plates, drinking from round cups and glasses and serving our soups in round bowls. And admit it - when you walk into an upscale restaurant and your salad arrives on a square salad plate you start to feel a little tingle of excitement, don't you? You're already anticipating a marvelous surprise, simply because your salad plate hasn't the same boring round shape you've been eating from all your life.

We've been eating on round plates since the dawn of time, simply because until recently we didn't have the capability to mass produce durable square dinnerware sets at a price everyone could afford. But that's all in the past. Now we have square dinnerware sets in more colors, styles and patterns than you can imagine. Now - dare I say it? Yes, I think I will. Now... it's hip to be square!

The good new is that right now the prices on square dinnerware is comparable to classic round sets so this is the perfect time to take the plunge and shake up your dinner table.

Not sure about diving headlong into this trend? Then here are some tips to help you ease into it gradually:

Buy a set of square dinnerware the compliments your existing service. If you're currently using solid-colored round plates, try a set of square dinnerware in a contrasting color or pattern. Then use both services to make your table more exciting.

Start with the round dinner plate and bowl and use the contrasting square salad plate for an intriguing splash of color and texture on your table. Or alternate services. Use your round service for one guest, square for the next, then round, then square. Again, you'll be adding a trendy accent to your table top.

If you've never used square plates yourself or you're afraid your guests will find them a little too avant garde, you might be surprised to learn that lots of people actually prefer the clean lines of square plates and glassware. In fact, you might be even more surprised to learn that many of your friends are already using this trendy dinnerware in their own homes.

So go ahead. Take the plunge or just wade in gradually. Either way, you'll be setting a more exciting and visually appealing dinner table when you start using square dinnerware.

      I have a set of square dishes...they are huge and don't fit in my cabinet very well, but they look great and they're still my favorites! :)
