For everyday, I LOVE Corelle! It’s LIGHT, it’s EXTREMELY durable (seriously, we should have like 4 broken plates by now!), and they’re easy to clean!
We have this set
I loved the square clean white look. We use them for company all the time too! (put them on black square chargers…. looks awesome!)

I should add, with something “plain, white, and square” like what @dillpickle46: and i have… It’s SO EASY to match serving pieces! That’s one reason I use mine for company all the time. Any store, Target, Walmart, BB&B, etc… carry the “White” pieces. I have great finds from pitchers to platters to you name it… and they ALL match each other!

We registered for the Studio Dinnerware at Pottery Barn for our everyday dishes. We have a couple platters and bowls from that collection already and love them. Many of the reviews say they chip easily, but that hasn’t been our experience so far! (We’ve definitely thrown them in the dishwasher multiple times)

@KLP2010: Totally agree! I didn’t think about matching it with a different colored charger…great idea! The dinnerware set I have is being discontinued at Macy’s but I was able to find great serverware pieces just with a different company…but since it’s still white and square, they all match still!

I wanted the simplest, plainest dishes I could find. We have these.
I love the look of food on a clean white plate, and I like that we can use any color tablecloth, placemats, napkins, etc. to make the table look more exciting.
(Except that 99.9% of the time, we’re eating at the coffee table in front of the TV but whatevs)

Thanks all!! I think I found ones I really really love. They’re Mikasa (wispy floral) but for some reason they’re SUPER reasonably priced ($60 for FOUR place settings– insane!). And they’re classic with just a little something fun. Haven’t showed Fiance yet… hopefully he is ok with them even though they’re flowery!

Here are mine! They are the Tronada Noche pattern from Lenox. I LOVE them!
We already had solid white and solid black plates from our previous apartments, so it’s great that I can still pull the oldies out in a pinch and have things still look tied together.

Thanks! FH actually picked them out, I was pushing for the Sophie Coran ones but figured if he actually had an opinion I should go with that. And I still really like these ones as well.

I didn’t register for everyday plates because I get so bored so easily with things as simple as plates. I LOVE this set that I got from Ikea. It was inexpensive enough so I dont feel horrible when something breaks. I am completely obsessed with black plates too. Fits with the black and red theme I have in my kitchen.
