YAY!!! I thought my mom and I were the only crazys! haha…

My mom and I are collecting 400 place settings of mismatched china for our June reception… we’re at 282 dinner plates!!!  I think your mission is a little more difficult thought because yours all has to match!

Your china is beautiful!  If anything – I recommend http://replacements.com/!  You can find just about any set of china and “fill in” your missing pieces.  They are a little expensive, but if you are missing just a few – Id say go with it!  Dont forget eBay!!!

That is actually really really cute! I love that you’ll use it for bridal showers and future baby showers for the family.

Garage sales and estate sales!  You can always get cheap china there!

@jpalm13:  Ours is June 1st – so we have plenty of time!!!

I definitely have a few pieces of that china!!! haha… how funny!  I love how the white outline makes the flowers pop!  I have found mine at Savers, Salvation Army, Goodwill, and other thrift stores.  We’ve been to a few auctions and estate sales too!

Replacements.com has the five-piece setting for $23.99.  You definitely got a steal getting those 83 pieces for only $150!!!  Thats crazy!

I love your spreadsheet… I definitely need to devise something like that for my list! 

That is such a good idea to collect it for showers and stuff… so beautiful!!!

Beautiful china!! I must say it is so incredibly sweet that you and your mother are including your Future Sister-In-Law in on this also, she is a very lucky girl.

@jpalm13: Very pretty! What a great idea.

There are quite a few listings on craigslist.
