To make your Valentine’s Day perfect, we have hand-picked the Ritz Sovereign stainless-steel 44-piece boxed set, boasting a classic design that’s sure to enhance any table. If you’re having salad as part of your main, complete your cutlery with these beautiful Kings salad servers.

No Valentine’s Day dinner is can be complete without something sweet, so dessert is next on the menu – why don’t you whip up a Valentine’s pie? We found this gorgeous recipe on the Country Living website that’s sure to get your heart racing…and is there any better way to serve a slice of this sweet cherry pie than with this sophisticated pie knife from the Kings range? And once it’s served, there’s no better way to eat it than with these matching Kings pastry forks.

 

All of this preparation is thirsty work, so make sure you have the right equipment on hand to make the ideal Valentine’s Day tipples – if you fancy a cocktail or two then this silver-plated cocktail shaker could be your new best friend, helping you to concoct mojitos or martinis in no time.

And if you like your drinks cool, this classic silver-plated ice bucket, complete with strainer, will keep your refreshments perfectly chilled throughout the evening.

The last course of any great dinner is cheese – and the only way to cut cheese is with a proper cheese knife. This one, from the Royal Pearl range, is simply stunning and will make your cheeseboard stand out. The finishing touch to any cheeseboard is a bunch of grapes, so if you fancy indulging a little this Valentine’s Day, these exquisite grape scissors are guaranteed to be the pièce de résistance.
