Which Plate Are You?

With the holidays upon us, 
the entertaining season has begun.



Weekends and evenings filled with parties and dinners..
out comes the china, silver and crystal.
These blossoms are for all of you well into spring on the other side of the world :)




So what will you be serving up those delectable eats on?

Are you a traditionalist?

A little boho..mix and match Bopla patterns and colours..
this was the china I registered for as a bride.
We ended up eloping, which is entirely another story, 
so we didn't recieve much, 
but I do have a wonderfully eclectic four person table setting :)

Fearless. How many people could carry this off?



Can't decide? Need versatility to be free to create a one-of a kind table?
Maybe you are a white china type..

So which one suits you the best?
Maybe a few?

I have Bopla, but I usually use my Mum's china for dinner, 
because it reminds me of so many happy times.
I love how the muted color tones down the frilliness of this pattern and shape.




This was one of our three Thanksgiving tables this year, 
over twenty family were at our home, it was wonderful.
Sorry about the horrible photo, snapped this quickly about two minutes before anyone arrived!




Happiest of Thanksgivings to all of you Stateside :)

til next time..

I always bought all white sets, they were easy to mix and match. However, now, as I'm getting more and more comfortable with my personal aesthetic, I"m looking to bring colour and pattern into the mix. Still white, but with fun accents. Love the Monique Luthillier and Black dot spiral. Thanks for a great post.

Your Mum's dishes are lovely! I have to say my favourite is the Kate Spade.
I can see them alongside flutes of champange on my holiday table!
