I came across this table setting on Pinterest over the weekend and was instantly smitten. Setting a pretty table is one of my favorite aspects of entertaining – I honestly believe it makes the food taste better! – and I adore this mix of blue and white vintage china, along with the typographical reference. When Billy and I got married I knew I would inherit my Nonna’s china, so in lieu of a more formal pattern we opted for Bill Campbell pottery which we use as our everyday dinnerware. However, had this not been the case, I love the idea of registering for a more untraditional table setting, like the mix-and-match one seen here available through Antiquaria.
Of course this look can also be achieved through scouting out your local vintage stores and ebay – a fun venture – or you can even create a modern take on it with off-the-shelf open-stock items.
QUESTION: For you married ladies out there – did you register for traditional china? If so, would you opt for something different now? Would love to hear your take on it!
