    First picture. A little fancier- a little vintage.

    Second picture. Very practical, goes with everything, but still cute.

    I would pick the first one because I think the second isn’t really very versatile because it’s colonial and has a “bulky” feel to it.

    I think you should pick a china pattern that fits you as a couple. We both immediately knew which ones were meant to be ours. Blue birds are a symbol in his family for his uncle that died in an accident so we knew it was us. If the first china feels like you- then go for it!

    ours- just for fun

    I like the first one a lot better.  I’ve seen both of these in person, and the first one is really really nice.  The second one looks a little cheap. 

    And if you get a really modern kitchen in the future… you can always just get square white plates and it’ll match.  

    Get what you like NOW!  Especailly since they aren’t formal china, its not too big of a worry. I think the first ones are lovely.

    I like the second, is always good if it goes with everything!

    Love the first one. The second one kind of looks like something they’d have at hotels :-/

    Thanks for posting this… *evil face* now I’m gonna waste the rest of my day looking at china :-p

    I’d go with the second because from experience the bowl style in the first is annoying! 

    Plus I think it could be dressed up for a dinner party and what not with some nice placemats & napkins

    #2 but that’s what I registered for too 🙂  I think you could make it more vintage or modern (depending on your mood or style) by adding cups and different tablecloth cloths- you can’t really do that with #1.  I also think it looks more expensive than #1.

    I would say go with the second set! I have a similar set that I bought from Ikea and I still love it to this day as it’s really practical, looks good and inexpensive! It will never look out of place!

    I think the second set doesn’t look modern. It’s not vintage, sure, but it’s old fashioned in a different way, so I don’t think the possible future modern kitchen should factor in.

    I have Chirp too!!!!  I love Lenox.  I like the second pattern because it isn’t as stylized.
