I’m obsessed with mine. They are Crate & Barrel’s White Pearl collection. They are apparently not as likely to chip as the stoneware you find most places. They’re really sleek and lightweight. They were pricier than your average casual dinnerware, and I felt guilty about it plus I didn’t think we’d get it all, but I got some good advice from the ladies on here to register for it anyway and we got almost all of it!

We’ve got Vietri and they have some gorgeous white dishes that could also pass for formal china. Very flexible. Love them!

We registered for the Staccato dinnerware at Crate & Barrel. C & B has so many cute everyday sets!

We got Aspen by Crate & Barrel (link) and we love it! It’s affordable and extremely durable (we’ve had a few pieces of it for years but just completed our set with the wedding registry) and I think it’s beautiful. Very simple, but will go with everything. It’s not as thin as Corelle (which my parents also have) and not as bulky as a lot of the other dishes you find at big-box stores — just a happy medium. I also love that it’s warm-oven safe, so you can keep pancakes or whatever warm until you finish cooking without worrying about busting the plate.

I purchased 2 sets of four dishes from West Elm – one set of round and one set of square. They are just simple and white, but are very well styled and weighted. Have held up very well so far, and are only $7-8 per dinner plate.

I worked at Williams-Sonoma for a long time for extra money… and I have to say that I absolutely LOVE my white Apilco dinnerware. It is pricey (luckily I got mine with my discount) but totally durable and dishwasher/oven safe. I have dropped some of mine over the years, and they survived! I even got my mother to switch out her Mikasa dishes for the Apilco Everyday Dinnerware… It IS heavy though… French Porceline, which is much stronger than earthenware which ends up crazing over time…
Just a suggestion 🙂

We registered for (and now have) Maison from Crate and Barrel. We love, love, love it and couldn’t be happier with our decision. The reviews on C&B say that some people have had it for more than 10 years, and they love how durable and timeless it is. It’s the perfect mix of modern and traditiona. I cannot recommend it enough!

Just wanted to follow up… we ended up registering for the Aspen dishes from Crate and Barrel, since they received good reviews, were really affordable (maybe that will make up for the $200 pillow I registered for?? yikes!! It is sooo comfy though…) and when I compared the Aspen and Maison sets in store, which are very very similar, the Aspen seemed to be a brighter white than the Maison. The Maison seemed slightly grey next to the Aspen. Crate and Barrel also has a lot of plain white separate dishes, so my gravy boat, cream and sugar bowls, and some other small bowls are also from there but not from the Aspen line.
We’re going to use these plates as both our everyday dishes but also for entertaining and special occasions. (This will be our only set).

We have the “Wicker” pattern from Oneida. It’s white with a basketweave rim. Koh;’s had it it but was discontining it so my Mother-In-Law ordered ours online I think from Amazon.

We got the Madison set from Crate & Barrel. I’ve had on my favorites list for a couple of years now, and I was so excited when I got to add it to my registry!

For everyday, I actually like the white square dishes in the Food Network line at Kohl’s.
