i have a question for those who registered for 2 (or more) different sets of dishes (just to clarify- i don’t mean one set of every day dishes and one set of fine china, i mean multiple sets of one or the other)

did you register for a complete set of each one? like, 10 place settings of one, and 10 of the other? or did you do half and half?

we finally registered over the weekend and we decided to do a mix of fiestaware and the floral set (posted on the first page). we did 6 of each, so we registered for 12 place settings altogether, which i think is enough, but i’m just wondering what others have done. we both have big families (my fiance especially), so i’m tempted to add a few more.

count me in with the fiesta ware group. i’m trying to decide between going with scarlet, white and black, or going just white. i kinda love the idea of two place settings each of scarlet, lemongrass, turquoise, white, and black. but i dunno how he’ll feel about that. it’s a lot of color!

i already have fine china. i inherited my great grandmother’s china a few years ago. so we won’t be registering for fine china. but every day dinnerware? yes.

@cemetree:  I have Chirp and I love it!!!  It’s so pretty.  My mom bought it for me for my 30th birthday, though, so now I have no need to register for dinnerware.  =)

We love Corelle!  We each had a set with a different pattern, so we’ve decided to donate our old sets and upgrade to the Shadow Dance pattern:

I already have awesome everyday dishes from Crate & Barrel (white with scribbly black flowers) so we’re registering for nice china only.

Finally decided on Denby’s Lucille Gold:

I like that it’s a 4-piece place setting. We liked other patterns but the dainty teacups and saucers seemed like something we wouldn’t ever use, so we wanted a setting with a deep bowl and a big mug.

We don’t entertain a lot because we have such a small house, but I know that in the future we’ll probably be hosting a lot of the family dinners, so we registered for a full 12 place settings.

This thread is making me a little sad Frown

My china pattern was discontinued, and since I didn’t have all the pieces and didn’t want to spend the money to finish it now I decided to return it all.

I loved the pattern (Modern Love, Monique Lhuillier), but when we looked at it closely, we noticed many flaws like the platinum band not being complete or the bands not being centred, but on a funny angle.

We haven’t found a pattern we like to replace it yet, so we have some high value GCs just sitting here.  Hopefully we’ll find something soon!  There aren’t many stores that carry china here.

Luckily, we did get everyday Denby dishes that we didn’t even initially register for!  It was a boxed set of a mixture of Truffle & Truffle Layers and we registered for a few extra pieces.

@AB Bride:  Awww, bummer! That’s a pretty pattern, but especially eye-catching when you look at the whole setting with the solid blue band on the salad plate… I wonder why they dc’d it. It’s so unique.

@sweetcrackers:  It was Royal Doulton and they discontinued many of their patterns.

  Fiance is really obsessed with square plates! Here is the set we went with:

Noritake Colorwave Green Square 4-Piece Place Setting

  I also kind of want to mix in some of the graphite colors as well! We also registered for these place mats:

Gray Medallion Placemat- Set of 4.Opens in a new window

And this flatware setting:

  I’m pretty excited for it!!

@keepsmiling19:  I think I have the same flatware (or at least something very similar) and I LOVE it!

We are registered for Mikasa’s Italian Countyside Dinnerware.  I added a bunch of other items like platters, bowls, mugs, etc from this line.  It’s one of my favorite things we’ve registered for.  I love the little teacups and saucers.  I love that these are china but also dishwasher and microwave safe.  I also like that they’re plain and  you can buy special dishes for Christmas as an accent plate that match.  I’d love to have those.
