Tempting Tabletop Collections

I’ve always loved a good tabletop setting, oogling many a dinner party set up on Pinterest with the best of them. Yet I personally own pretty boring stuff to set a table with. As of late I’ve been picking up some interesting pieces (striped plates from OKL, a set of fabulous Herend salad plates from my mother in law) and hoping to keep adding to that collection -where I’ll store it all, I have no clue!  I’ve said before I regret not registering for patterned , fancy china (particularly this set) when I got married.  I mean, when else are you going to spend the money to get such stuff?  The answer: never!  So I try to encourage brides to not think about their lifestyle now but down the road when they maybe actually own a dining table and want to throw parties.

So here are three new collections I’m loving- starting with this amazing collection from Raynaud in partnership with the fabulous wallpaper company Fromental.  I love this style wallpaper, and so obviously I love it translated into china!  You can get just some salad plates to add to simple white dinnerware or perhaps register for the whole shebang.

I’m also loving the new Ralph Lauren Empress collection- you know my blue and white obsession continues to tabletop and this is a well priced table setting that is classic and mixes well with other solid plates and even some patterns.

It even mixes well with Ralph’s other new collection, Cote d’Azur in stripes!

The other blue and white new collection I’m eyeing is this one from Oscar de la Renta. It’s more of a casual vibe, perfect for everyday.  The polka dot napkins just add to the whimsy.
