China Patterns. I saw Kelly’s Korners SUYL post today and knew I had to participate.
I might have mentioned our three patterns in the Twitter Home Tour Post, but if not here’s the scoop. We have three patterns. Our formal one is blue & silver that my Dad’s mom gave us as a wedding gift (its their wedding formal china & so pretty). I don’t know the name and we’ve only used it on our first married Valentine’s Day when we cooked at home. Here’s a photo of it in our china cabinet from the Home Tour Post.

We registered for Crate & Barrel’s Madison as our everyday pattern. I love that its white & you can do whatever tablesetting and it’ll look good. We didn’t realize until we received our first setting that it is not evenly lipped~ but now we like that about it!

Our third pattern might be my favorite. It’s our Christmas china! It’s Lenox’s Holiday Gatherings. I love that we actually have four different patterns within Holiday Gatherings ~ its so cute that they coordinate. The plaid is my favorite, but it was retired right after we registered. I was only able to find four of the below salad plates. Sometimes we’ll use all of one type and others just whatever comes out of te cabinet first. I love when November rolling around because it means we can bring it out soon!

I’m at work so these photos are all from the internet (thanks Crate & Barrel & Amazon!).
