I think I am part of a final generation of people who actually registered for wedding china. I have noticed that most of my husband's younger siblings and their friends have not done so. I think this is partly because Target is the "register" place of choice and they don't carry such a thing and also because life has gotten just way more casual.
So, I did register for wedding china--Alsatia by Noritake.
Originally, I had registered for a different pattern and as I was leaving the store I saw this and immediately fell in love. The salad plate is what makes the pattern and every time I see it, I have "that" feeling.
Anyway, we have been married for over 11 years and never used it. So, this past week, I hosted a dinner for my dad's brothers and sister and their spouses and got this out. I had enough for the group but not 12 of each, which is what I think is a must-have number.
So, this past week, I went on-line and ordered the pieces I was missing. Hopefully, within a few days, I will own 12 dinner and 12 salad plates as well as a gravy server and a round vegetable bowl. This pattern is discontinued, so I will need to take very good care of it.
And, now that my kids are older, I need to make sure and use it for those special dinner occasions.
I am the only one out there who owns china?
