During wedding month this past June, one of my most popular posts was the one I wrote about my Wedding Registry must-haves. In it, I stressed my advice to register for China whenever you get married. I truly feel China is a timeless commitment that never goes out of style! If you choose a classic set, and you’ve been married a while, it’s easy to get sick of your China. Especially if you use it as much as we do! I don’t save it “for a special occasion” and instead pull it out whenever we have company– or even when I cook a nice dinner for just the two of us. I like to use beautiful objects in everyday life whenever possible! Life is short!
But even if you use the same China all the time, it is possible to remix it for a fresh look that will totally reinvigorate your table top. You can even make your China look completely different by pairing it with something new. Today I wanted to share a Summer take on my dinner party tabletop that I created using my wedding China and some additional styling elements. I’ve included some of my favorite classic China sets in a widget below, as well as a selection of some tabletop elements you can use to remix the look.
Classic China Patterns…
I think that remixing your China set is the best opportunity to test out something you wouldn’t normally try– Like mixing prints, or even offsetting the pattern of your China with a bold color! Utilize Charger Plates, Appetizer Plates stacked on top of your dinner plate china, or even accent plates or dessert plates. Don’t forget to add a new napkin in the mix, and some beautiful glassware.
