Do you love your wedding china? If I could do it all over again, I would not have registered for our wedding china. I had no idea what I wanted and felt pressured to pick a pattern. Unfortunately, I picked something that I am just not thrilled about and now I want to sell it. Here it is Wedgwood's India pattern.
At our tag sale this weekend, a lovely woman told me that Replacements will buy your china. Did you know that? I'm definitely going to look into that. My problem is that too many patterns appeal to me so I don't think I could ever just settle for one set. I love my mom's china - Burgenland from Villeroy and Boch.
And, I like the idea of blending pieces - a piece from her collection and pairing it with a vintage or more modern/edgy serving piece. Did you know there is a service in NYC called The Silver Peacock that will take your heirloom china and work with you to find complements to coordinate with your inherited piece? Pretty cool, huh? But, personally, I think it takes all the fun away from doing it yourself.
In the meantime, how adorable is this blended vintage china set above or the patterned vintage china set below? Too cute - I definitely feel inspired by this.
But for starters, I'd opt for a minimalistic set that is classic, timeless and refined. Something like this to add pattern pieces too if I desire. I love the monogram touch.
So, what about you do you love your wedding china?
