    Hmmm.  My china is from Italy, passed down from my Nona and Papa so I dont have any photos.  But its white, with a sterling silver lining around the rim, with a single pale pink long stem rosebud set to the right side of the plate.  sounds ugly but its quite beautiful!  Same with the flatware – it is sterling passed down from my Nona and Papa. We set it with metal chargers beneath

    Our crystal is Vera Wang Duchesse - http://www1.macys.com/catalog/product/index.ognc?ID=86500&PseudoCat=se-xx-xx-xx.esn_results

    Napkins and tablecloths are Waterford "Wiltshire" in ivory http://www1.macys.com/catalog/product/index.ognc?ID=122854&PseudoCat=se-xx-xx-xx.esn_results

    Napkin rings are Waterford "Beaded Acanthus" http://www1.macys.com/catalog/product/index.ognc?ID=98293&PseudoCat=se-xx-xx-xx.esn_results

    I’ll comment again since there is a poll now 🙂 I voted “other.” I think that formal china, stemware, and flatware is really nice. If money were no object I’d definitely want some. But, considering how much money it would cost to get all of those things it is a total non-priority. Also, registering for it is not an option. No one in my family has much money so that would be a bit out of people’s price range for a gift!

    We weren’t planning on registering for formal china at all, but then I saw ours and fell in love!

    It’s “chirp” by lenox. We also registered for some pretty nice stemware because I LOVE stemware, and our flatware is our everyday, but it’s pretty nice looking.

    Mr. Savannah and I chose Waterford ‘Newgrange’ as our formal china. It is made by Wedgewood.  I had already began collecting pieces of my crystal stemware which is Waterford ‘Ballyshannon’… our Sterling pattern is ‘Federal Cotillion’…..  Being Southern, my relatives are asking what other sterling pieces we will add to the registy… but I have no intention of adding anything besides the flatware…  Because honestly, we would prefer new towels and sheets to a sterling tea set! haha

    We actually registered for a mix of Kate Spade Belle Boulevard and Waterford Kilbarry Platinum (Kate Spade for bread&butter/accent plates and Waterford for salad, dinner, saucer, teacups and soup). 

    We also registered for the Lenox "Timeless Platinum" stemware and Couzon "Avignon Bright" flatware. 

    Confession? I have a crush on the Chirp pattern, but it was way too girly for FI!
