Test Title 1

{simple things} white place settings

a week ago wade and i celebrated our first 6 months of being married. we didn't plan to celebrate - but my husband is pretty awesome and picked up a lovely bouquet of all my favorite flowers. then on saturday night he suggested that we eat on our china!

so that is exactly what we did:

most of our friends didn't register for formal dinnerware. most of them (and my blog favorites) are somewhat hippie 1960s vintage - but i'm a bit more ... oh ... colonial! :) so it's only suitable that i love a formal dinner table!

and wade and i were particularly excited to register for it. i have so many sweet memories of dinners shared on both my mom and my grandma's china. including the pride i felt when i was invited to sit at the adult table and use the fine china & crystal for the first time.

i love all the bright patterned formal dinnerware available right now:

but let's face it people - we can't afford multiple patterns to mix and match as much as martha stewart encourages it. {nor could we store all of it in our apartment.} so we opted for a pretty white + platinum place setting:

there's so much you can do with a basic white place setting too. add a table cloth, a few vintage mix/match accent pieces, some bright napkins, a charger or two and fresh flowers ... and voila! white china that would even get martha to double take.

here are a few of my favorite easter ideas:

It's pretty much what anyone close to me calls me. So no, it's not weird! Well we do have a date planned tomorrow night at park cafe (thank you wedding gifts). Celebrating 1 year in Nashville and we can throw 6 months in there too... Why not?
