China Pattern

Today is Show us Your Life at Kelly's Korner and we are sharing our china patterns.
I remember the one thing I wanted to do after I got engaged was go register! There was always something so magical about the scanner gun. You just scan your item and someone will buy it for you! Amazing! I've tried to incorporate this process in my everyday life, but it hasn't worked out so well . . .

Anyway, I really love the china pattern we picked out.

I like that it is simple and elegant and you could add any color in with it if you wanted to.

There is not a crystal pattern that matches it exactly so we just picked one with silver around the top.

When we registered for the china, I felt like I really had to contemplate every aspect of the china and make sure it was something I liked, but I don't think our china has ever been taken out of our china cabinet. Well I take that back. We pulled it out to use for our first Valentine's Day.

But needless to say, the queen doesn't come to visit very often. I think we only have two place settings at our place and my mom has the rest in her attic. It's so pretty, I feel like I need to create more occasions to use it.

I am the exact same way- I need to get mine out more often, but with two small children, that's a little scary!

I have the same pattern! :) I love it because it's classic and will never go out of style. We used ours for a Christmas dinner party with friends. We don't have a china cabinet yet, but hopefully when that day comes we can use it more often.

I have the same pattern and choose the same glassware! I have used it for thanksgiving and Christmas and very few other occasions but I think that will be a goal for now on, make a special occasion once a month and pull it out!
