After choosing a nice tablecloth, let’s start with a charger first.

The charger is sometimes called a serving or presentation plate and has not only an aesthetic function.

It serves as a decorative base for setting a dish and is placed exactly in the center.

This type of plate indicates as well the exact position of the guest on the table.

Put the charger about an inch from the edge of the table called the baseline.

The Versace charger is a really richly decorated porcelain piece.

It will help you to embellish the setting without putting any addition decorative elements on the table.

    The Versace “Medusa Gala” 30 cm Service Plate comes in a refined gift box.

    The ancient Greeks used the Gorgon’s Head in plate decoration to bring good fortune and ward off evil.
    Versace resumes this belief and the flamboyant golden Medusa Head stands again guardian of our table bringing elaborate whites and golds to the modern world.
    A rich wide band of arabesque motifs and a finer Greek key encircle the enchanting mythical figure outlined on the snow white porcelain. read more...

    The baroque aesthetics and the Versace’s luxurious richness of the Medusa Gala decòr enriches even further the glamorous Rosenthal Versace collections dedicated to the mythological creature.
    The Medusa becomes extremely elegant and refined against the dazzling white porcelain background enveloped by the gilded filigree and intricate baroque ornaments.
    The collection is a bit subdued in terms of colour featuring an ornate pale grey and white pattern with or without gold accents.
    According to ancient myths Medusa was one of the three Gorgons which in Greek mythology were sea monsters with gold wings, snakes for hair, and turned anyone who looked directly at them to stone.
    The three sisters represented perversion in its three individual forms: intellectual, sexual and moral.
    Medusa’s snake hair locks were a punishment from Athena.
    The once extremely beautiful mortal was punished by Athena with a hideous appearance and loathsome snakes for having been raped in Athena’s temple by Poseidon.
    Gianni Versace chose this Greek mythological figure as his luxurious logo because she made people fall in love with her and they had no way back.
    He hoped his Maison would have the same seductive effect on people.
    Indeed the sumptuous Medusa head is the protagonist of many Versace collections in different rich colours and refined details making them unique and highly desirable among Versace cult followers.
    The Medusa Gala is ideal for those who wish to bring home the magnificence of gold combined to the sophistication of the Versace patterns ideal for gala dinners as the name inspires.
    The “Medusa Gala Gold” line, adorned with a full-faced gold plume and ribbon motif, is even more luxurious.

The next step to follow is to place the dinner plate exactly on the center of the top of the charger.

The bread plate is always positioned to the left of the charger and is 18 cm.

The dessert plate, if necessary, must be placed after the dinner plate is no longer used.

However, if you’re planning on serving some soup for dinner, you’ll need to make a few additions to your Versace dining set.

Depending on the type of soup, you can choose between Versace Creamsoup Сup and Saucer or a classic Versace Soup Plate.

versace medusa rhapsody plates

If you’re determined to use matching tableware to serve soup, you can add a Versace soup tureen like the one from the Médaillon Méandre d’or collection.

A Versace soup ladle Medusa Cutlery Gold or Silver Plated would complete this part of your Versace dining set.

You can also add other table accessories such as Versace Salt and Pepper Set and Versace Sauce-Boat. If you plan to serve vegetables or salads, for example, you could add the Versace Salad Bowl or the Versace Covered Vegetable Bowl. And if you serve Asian food and prefer chopsticks to spoons and forks, you may need the Versace chopstick holder accompanied by the Versace rice bowl.

Now let’s move on to cutlery. The choice of cutlery depends on the food you decide to serve.

Usually, the cutlery is in the order the plates will be served, so you need to start eating with those cutlery that are on the edge.

Place the table knife on the right and the table fork on the left of the charger at the same distance from the edge of the table.

The cutting edge of the knife must always point towards the plate.

If you are serving a fish course, place the fish cutlery next to the main course cutlery, in the same arrangement.

Push the fork up slightly, align the ends of the fish fork tines with the height of the fork tines.

If a soup will be served as the starter, add the soup spoon. Place the soup spoon on the right at the same height as the knives.

Different Entry Course? No problem!

versace cutlery medusa silver plated

If you have chosen to serve a different entry course, replace the fish cutlery with other dinner cutlery of the appropriate type. Lay the fork for the entry course in the same arrangement.

If a soup will be served as the starter, add the soup spoon. Place the soup spoon on the right at the same height as the knives.

Place the dessert cutlery about the plate, parallel to the edge of the table and along the top line. The spoon should be at the top pointing to the left and the fork below pointing to the right.

Versace Cutlery is available in several coatings that may be used for various occasions.

There are Versace Medusa Gold plated and silver plated collection and the newest Greca Cutlery series released last year.

Versace 5 Piece Place Setting Medusa Cutlery Gold or Silver Plated, for instance, including one of each of the Dinner Spoon, Dinner Fork, Dinner Knife, Dessert Fork and Coffee Spoon will be a perfect match with Versace Dining Set that will delight the eyes of your guests.

Now is the time to move on to the glassware. If you decide to serve wine, your first glass or main glass will be for a wine.

If it goes with the main course, place it exactly above the main course knife at the height of the dessert cutlery with a top line and the knife line meet.

Select the other glasses needed to accompany the dishes and place them next to the main glass in line. The second wine glass and water tumbler should be placed on the right side.

Versace collection Medusa Lumiere is dedicated to crystal and in particular to glasses.

You may opt for the highball suitable for classic drinks or a short tumbler accompanied by the red wine glass.

When the main part of the table arrangement is ready, you can move on to the decorative part.

Add a personal touch by arranging the finest details of the table setting.

It is best to opt for accessories that will add lustre to your Versace Dining Set.

Be free to add flowers to the Versace vase and place it at the center of the table setting.

Versace Scented Candle will be a marvellous addition for romantic touch or Versace Napkin Holder put on a cloth napkin can be placed on a plate in an elegant way complete the whole arrangement.

    Medusa – Ikarus, one of the first dinnerware collections of “Rosenthal meets Versace”, launched in 1993, mirrors the matchless rich, colour intensive world of Versace.
    The emblematic Versace pattern featuring the glorious gold coloured central Medusa head has a new contemporary look.
    The new form lends excitement to this classic pattern.
    Beautiful detail and vibrant colour of the expressive baroque ornaments make this a true must have.
    The pulsating brilliance of the deep red, the elegance of the black and the magnificence of the gold: a colour spectrum which dominates the Medusa collection.
    The collection was Designed by Paul Wunderlich a German internationally known lithographic and object surrealist artist.
    His works are characterised by magic and mysticism and by the use of precious materials such as porcelain.
    Wunderlich had been working for Rosenthal since 1978.
    According to ancient myths Medusa was one of the three Gorgons which in Greek mythology were sea monsters with gold wings, snakes for hair, and turned anyone who looked directly at them to stone.
    The three sisters represented perversion in its three individual forms: intellectual, sexual and moral.

If you like to end your dinner with a nice cup of tea or coffee, then your Versace Dining Set must be completed with these missing elements.

The Versace Teacup with Saucer or Coffee cup with Saucer should be accompanied by Versace Creamer, Versace Sugar Bowl and Versace Teapot or Coffee Pot.

You can also add the Versace Tart Platter if you want to complete the dessert table setting.

And now that everything is ready, the meal is the only thing missing!
