i really love that china set! i was debating between that one and the one i ended up asking for (the tea cup swayed me lol). i was the same as you, wanting something classic. i saw all of the ones at bb&b that were very modern with the pictures and stuff on them which i thought were absolutely really cute, but i wanted to make sure in twenty years i still loved it just as much. here is the one i ended up going with:

it is by Mikasa and i found it at Macy’s.

anyway, yes, i love your choice!!

Well, we are not getting fine china. We are a miltary family and it’s just one more thing to break in a move. Plus, my grandmother is giving me her heirloom set of platinum banded china after we are settled somewhere. But, if I were going to register for some, this totally would have been it:

Kate Spade Belle Boulevard- It’s beautiful, but crazy expensive. $129/place setting!

This is the casual dishes we ended up registering for.

Mikasa Circle Chic in black, a much more reasonable $40/place setting

Gorgeous! We’re registered for Lennox Hannah Platinum, which photographs like plain boring white china with a simple platinum band (so I’m not posting it! 😉 but it has some really cool white-on-white patterns that go really nicely with our silver (gift from his parents)!

I’m kind of ridiculously excited about it.

Mine is vintage… because it was bought my FI’s parents when he was 3… but we love it!

@azinaugust  !!!!!!  That’s my great grandparents’ china!!  I almost cried when I saw it!!  My granny gave it to me and my mom in turn gave it to my brother and his first wife and she broke all of it 🙁  I’m glad someone else on this planet has the same pattern and will love it!!!

Thanks @bloodgo1 I originally though I wanted something less busy and more timeless like your selection, but then I found out we had a full 12 piece set of that (yes including tea cups and serving pieces) so I counted it as a pretty awesome score :o)

My grandma is giving me her set of Platinum rimmed lennox china.  It looks something like this.

So I opted for something a little more funky to put on my registry.

This is Kate Spade June Lane in gold.

And I think that all my aunts, my mother and my grandmother have a set of this.

I LOVE china.  And was working for a fine china company when we got engaged.  I lost my job before the wedding so we bought a ton with my discount before we left and then just registered for pieces that I couldn’t get.  I have a ridiculous collection:

12 place settings of Wedgwood Oberon

6 of Martha Stewart Bouquet Silver to mix and match with 6 of Wedgwood Sterling

Wedgwood Sterling - 5 Piece Place Setting

Martha Stewart Collection with Wedgwood Bouquet Dinnerware Collection

And various accent plates and all purpose bowls to switch it up a bit

  

plus Vera Wang Holly Wreath for Christmas and Wedgwood Eternity for everyday

Holly Wreath Footed Cake Stand - 10.5"Wedgwood Eternity 10 3/4" Round Dinner Plate (Set of 4)

Believe me- I got a smokin’ deal on most of it.  Guess who needs a china cabinet?

We registered for Wedgwood’s Platinum Signet.  Not hugely exciting to look at in the photo, but clean, classic and elegant on the table.
