To use the china or not use the china. That is the question.

The other day while completing some of our registry at Macy’s I found out that our china might be discontinued. This upset me a bit. We have been using the china as our everyday dishes because when we registered for them the salesperson told us that it was an item that “Would be in stock for a very long time”. They are machine washable and very durable. They are classy and simple. They are perfect for us. Too bad she was lying through her teeth.

So the dilemma for me is this…do we keep the china as everyday dishes? I am afraid that if we break one of them we will not be able to replace it. We have ordered a couple extra, but at almost $100 a place setting it is getting expensive.

The solution that I have come up with is that we get a set of everyday dishes that we can use. Dishes that we aren’t afraid to break. Then this way we can put away the china and save it for those special occasions. We really did not want to do this when we first registered for them. We both believe that you should eat on china whenever you would like. Special occasions should not be assigned dishes. Everyday should be a special occasion. Alas, it looks like we are going to have to go the route of everyone else. Saving them.

I have found a couple of dishes that I am interested in. They are fun, colorful and playful. They represent what we are and how we like to live. Another thing that attracted me to them is the teal. I love how there are pops of the teal color and how you can mix and match them with solid color dishes. I am hoping K loves them as much as I do.

  1. It’s beautiful! I say you keep them as everyday dishes. China is meant to be used. And it’s hard when something is so beautiful and when you love it so, but that’s all the more reason to enjoy it and let it make you smile everyday.
