As a casual person, I extend this philosophy to kitchenware. Like to only have one set of dishes. This set can be put on the table anytime because they can be casua or fancy. For the number of times I would use fine china, to me, having it seems like a waste. Emma Dinnerware-White #potterybarn
Golden Table Setting: Pull the basics from your china hutch -- white linens, champagne flutes, and your best china -- to create this elegant look. A floral plate and a leafy napkin ring look right for the holidays and year-round. Clear glass cylinders filled with small bundles of flowers create a dainty centerpiece.
