I say go with the silver…it will still match items and I honestly don’t think people will be up in arms if their silverware is gold or silver. Just hide all the torches and pitchforks lol.

@Hippos:  I think they look about the same.  I will say that the gold freaks me out a little bit more just because I think of the gold paint coming off.  I don’t think that as much about the silver.  But There is no reason why not.  Maybe cause I expect silverware to be silver.

@icanhearyousmile:  Honestly, I think people expect silverware to be silver.

We are having our Thanksgiving dinner today (Canada) and my china is white with a gold rim. I always use my York silverware with it and have never thought twice about it.

I’d just use the forks you have!

@icanhearyousmile:  I think the silver plastic forks are MUCH better than the gold ones. You know, for hundreds of years people have used nice dishes with gold rims, and normal silver silverware. It looks fine. In fact, I think gold flatware would look much less nice than the silver.

ETA: oops, saw you decided on the silver ones!

I say go with the silver.  In my experience a lot of Oriental Trading Company stuff can look OK in photos but then look really cheap when you get it.

I’d go with silver.  Silver flatware is basically a neutral color to me so I don’t think people will even notice it.
