We’re inheriting a set of Lenox Eternal, which is cream-colored with a gold band.  I like that it’s simple and elegant, goes with everything, and won’t go out of style.  I also like that I can change up the look of the table with different accent plates, serving pieces, and table linens.  Have fun picking your china!

Not the best pic (colors are off).  This is a set that is currently discontinued but they have it on Replacements.com.  I actually bought the ENTIRE set for 8 place settings at a Salvation Army store in perfect condition for…… $20.  It was probably the most incredible purchase of my life! We use it reasonably frequently and I just love the look and the birds on it. I get lots of compliments when we host parties.  It’s a little bit different from what most people pick, but it works for us!

if i hadn’t inherited my great grandparents’ china, i think we would have gone with lenox federal platinum. white china, platinum colored band on the edge. it’s timless, it’s simple, it goes with everything. i’d be able to add colored accent pieces, or the kate spade larabee road china that i LOVE, but FI thinks is too girly.

lenox federal platinum holds up really well- it’s something that tons of people have and love. probably half of the married couples i know have it, and it’s beautiful.

We didn’t register for actual china. I bought a set of plates I liked at TJ Maxx, and we registered for the set below and received all the peices. We can use these for every day or for a formal dinner. Also, I am inheriting my parent’s china, even though they’re divorced lol. But it’s a pretty little blue flower pattern.

Googled the back of the plate and came up with a photo.  I have an entire 8 setting collection (minus 1 plate that broke).  I inherited it from my grandmother.  Had I not inherited this, I likely wouldn’t own any,

@HappySky7:  my mom is a big lets-put-plates-on-a-wall person and I got her a plate from one of the Marchesa Lenox lines.  They make beautiful plates.

This is my set. I love the contrast of the black plates. 🙂

We registered for the Mikasa Pure Red set. We love the asian feel!

I’m in love with Arte Italica, Perlina.  It seems the only “mainstream” place we can register for it would be at Bloomingdales though, so we may need to find something else.

I am a big blue china fan, so I have this.  We just received our first place setting yesterday.  I think it’s gorgeous in person.

@tksjewelry:  Thanks!  It’s Marchesa by Lenox.  I think it’s called Sapphire Plume.
