Dishes Galore

I am WAY late on this one, but I thought it was fun. Check out Spur-Of-The-Minute Dish Carnival and join in. I loved looking at every one's dishes. It was like a glimpse into their personality.

We will be married 12 years in May. We registered for both our everyday dishes and our formal china.  I was amazed that we endedup with both complete sets.  I love my everyday dishes.  They are blue and white, but the blue doesn't show well in this picture.  I think they are timeless.  They are called Nikko Tea Roses:

I am sad to say I have only used my china twice since we've been married.  I am going to try to get them out more often.  I need some ideas for a tablecloth or place mats for my china though.  I got these because I knew they would be classic through the 
years.  However, I don't have any "gold" or "brass" in my home.  Any suggestions?  These are called Noritake Chandon:

Then of course, I have the "classic" plastic plates that my 3 boys use.  These do a great job at keeping the food from touching other foods.  You know how gross that can be for a 4 year old.  They are from Target:

 And here is the cabinet that houses my dishes.  I have always insisted on organized kitchen cabinets.  Our new house has small cabinets so this was a challenge.  I will say, my Tupperware cabinet is proving to be a bit more challenging.

Your dishes are beautiful! I never did get wedding china, but I have my grandmother's crystal which I love.

I wish it were cool for an adult to eat off of those plastic trays....I don't like my foods to touch either. :)

Your "everyday" dishes look too pretty to use (at least at my house!)

Love the kids plates!
