dish queen confessionals #2
Here are my thoughts on dinnerware, dear ones. Feel free to object, but I feel 100% positive that you can’t go wrong when you go with white or off-white everyday china. The white dish is a hard-working best friend. It’s flexible. It can be modern or it can be traditional. It does the work of a thousand sets of dishes. Save patterns for accent pieces that can be rotated in and out and lean on the white dinner plate for everyday sort of occasions.
The Nantucket set at World Market. We have this pattern for our dinner plates. I’ve mixed in salad plates and bowls that I found around town. That’s the great thing about white – you can mix and match to your heart’s content.
I also love the Boxwood set by Ralph Lauren. Love it so much that I have the bowls from this set that I snatched up for, hold onto your sets, $2.99 a piece at where else? T.J. Maxx. (I promise this isn’t a canned endorsement of that store. Cross my heart.)
The Regalia Porcelain set at Bed, Bath and Beyond is simple + beautiful. And, you can’t beat the price: $49.99 for forty six pieces. Yummy.
