For our fine china, I somewhat took Raymond into consideration and didn't get something too frufru.....I picked out the Simply Anna by Anna Weatherly and it's classic and not trendy so I had hoped when registering I would never get sick of it....so far so good!!!! I wanted to have some alternatives to the basics so I registered for the polka dots as well as the white and I received a nice variety of pieces, and it has made for beautiful decorations.
I picked out two every day patterns, the first being Nantucket Basket Weave by Wedgwood. This is just a basic, plain white with a twist. I love the pattern around the edges.
But my FAVORITE part of the set is the sugar bowl!! I have my creamer and bowl sitting on my counter since Raymond and I are big coffee drinkers, and it makes fixing my coffee in the morning a little bit better....this beats Starbucks!!
Since Raymond was such a good sport in the entire process of registering, I did pick out the Spode Woodland in honor of him. We registered for a variety of plates that have ducks, quail, pheasants, turkeys, and even some Boykins on them! They are slightly rustic but still have a bit of glam to them. I pair them with olive green monogrammed napkins and tablecloths and it's the perfect set!
As if I did not have enough.........last year I was in one of my all time favorite stores, Non(e) Such, ltd. and saw these beauties.....I had so much credit left after our wedding that I treated us to a setting of 6 of these....I'm hoping to get the other 6 this year!!!
so there you have it....my obnoxious display of china.....I can't wait to keep reading and see what you other lovies picked out for yours!!!!
Off to have my eardrums busted!!!!! Can't wait to report back how awful, I mean awesome, the concert was!!!
