Hi bees, just for fun, I’m wondering what china pattern you registered for! I was skeptical about picking china since I so rarely entertain, but FMIL explained that I may want to someday. I’m on a china kick now because my fiance and I just picked our pattern out tonight. Did you register for a china pattern, or do you have one picked out? Why or why not? And let’s see pictures, too!

I don’t entertain either so had I registered I wouldn’t have thought of looking for a pattern, but I might! While looking through my SILs registry at BB&B I was mesmerized by nearly all the china patterns! Lol.

We didn’t get an everyday pattern, we will use something and figure that out, but we have 9 place settings so far in Waterford Lismore Lace Platinum. We went to a registry event at Belks and picked it very quickly from all the options displayed. One of the easiest choices we made (you should have heard us go on about silverware!)
We love the match-mismatch of the two different borders!!
I hope this thread goes nuts, I want to see if I have picked a unique pattern or if everyone is loving it!!
@atreyu547: Lenox opal innocense I know to be a very popular pattern, and looks very bridal 🙂 I love almost everything Kate Spade too, but it is a bit feminine and trendy for my FI and our vibe together, so we went more traditional. Also my mom is a total china snob 😉 and wouldn’t dream of us not having a lennox/royal doulton/waterford/wedgewood or one of the old brands for our pattern. Something that will be in production for a long time!
Our Christmas china is Lennox Holiday Gold!! Love it too!! I won 4 place settings of it at a registry event, it was awesome!!! Plus like I said my mom collects and has a TON of the limited pieces/ serving pieces from over the years (goes on awesome sales at retail outlets that have extra after christmas!) So we have literally more serving options in our holiday dishes than our normal ones 😉
Also I realize it is a bit crazy to not have everyday dishes and have two fine china sets, but I blame my mum for raising me like that!!! 😉

Omigosh, this was a tough one. Things you wouldn’t think your manly man FI would care about…until he totally does. We decided on this:

Ours is Kate Spade Union Street by Lenox. FI didn’t want any metal on it at all, but with the black, you can barely see the platinum. I also kind of bribed him with Army green placemats and napkins and he came around. 😀
