White Dinnerware

With the holidays now nearly over, and New Years Eve fast approaching, my mind turns to my tabletop.  I have been on the hunt for perfect white dinnerware sets.  A white place-setting is always a classic, and it gives me wiggle room with the rest of my decor. I’m also going through this bizarre stage of nesting where I want everything in the house to look perfect (though it’s far from it!) I’m going to call this “third year of marriage syndrome”. I blame our wedding registry. A few years ago I got to beep a gun to my heart’s content at every pretty dish, fork, and vase, and voila: they appeared at my door a few weeks later. I’m having decor withdrawal.

I thought I loved the square shape.  We went to a friends’ house and they served everything is this funky square bowls, and I thought, “These are awesome!”, but after seeing all of the other gorgeous shapes, I’m more confused than ever.

So I need a bit of help:  Porcelain or stoneware?  Square or rounded edges?  Modern or classic?  Mix and match?

  1. I love the idea of mix and match. I will usually buy a few items at Anthropologie each time I go in! It’s a fun way to add to my eclectic collection 🙂

      Oh my gosh, I may need you to send me a picture of your collection! That sounds awesome!!

  2. I go back-and-forth on clean, white dishes…on one hand, they go with everything and always make the food plate well. On the other hand, sometimes I feel like it gets a little boring.

    So pretty. Nothing is more classic and versatile than white dinnerware.

    Our white dinner set is from Crate and Barrel and though when we registered for them, I wasn’t 100% sold, they were hands down one of the better decisions. I love how clean and crisp they look and they are so versatile. Do it!
