OK ladies, you were so wonderful to help me with my Fiestaware post; we’re now registered for turquoise, shamrock, sunflower, and peacock dishes for everyday!
(TY to caszos for the picture and suggestion! FI and I owe you girl!)
Keeping our casual dinnerware in mind, which of these white china patterns is your favorite? Some of these aren’t considered ‘formal’ on the Bloomingdale’s site, but they’re definitely dressier than our daily dinnerware!
Keeping that in mind, which of these china patterns do you like best? I finally narrowed it down to 4!
1. “Anmut Platinum” by Villeroy & Boch; $105 per five piece set; bone china
Clean. Sleek. Simple. But beautiful in its shape and high quality. It would be versatile and very easy to dress up with chargers, crystal, and other table accessories. At the same time, I could serve pizza or Chinese takeout on these and keep things low key. I can’t get over the shape of the handles on the teapot and tea cups! So, so pretty:
2. “Berry and Thread” by Juliska; no 5 piece set – each piece comes separately with $39 per dinner plate, $34 per scalloped dessert/salad plate, etc; stoneware
A classic, from what the good people at Bloomingdale’s tell me. This is the brand’s bestselling pattern, and it will hopefully be around for years to come, meaning I can replace as needed. I like the different shapes of each pieces, the chargers, and the fact that there’s so much matching serverware! Baking dishes, cake stands, pitchers, several different platters, etc. There’s also several different options for plates, cups, and so on.
3. “Jardins Du Monde” by Juliska; no 5 piece set, $44 per dinner plate, $42 per salad, etc; stoneware
Like the other Juliska pattern, this one comes with a good amount of serverware. It’s a lot girlier than the other two shown, and I feel like I could serve Easter, Christmas and Thanksgiving dinner off of it with pride! Every single piece has a different pattern, and I feel that’s what makes this pattern so very special. Comes with some gorgeous canisters, platters, and a lot of dramatically different small plates and pitchers!
