Our Wedding Dishes

We were married 26 years ago next month.  Wedding registries were just becoming the "in thing" so Wonderful Hubby and I made our choices together.  Since we live in the country, we both felt fancy china wouldn't get much use.  (I already had a blue and white set of Haviland china that I'd purchased several years prior through our local grocery store.)  We decided on a set of Pfaltzgraff and have been so happy with it!  The style, Remembrance, has been discontinued now but before they stopped making it altogether, I was able to get more dinner plates and a few extra pieces.  I now have several other sets of dishes but I love the comforting feeling I get when we use the Pfaltzgraff.  It just feels like home! 

When Kathleen from Cuisine Kathleen made the challenge of posting about our wedding china, I thought I'd post about my mom's china that Precious Daughter inherited (and I'm storing!).  Then I thought about our wedding dishes and realized how much I love this set.  I guess I'll post about Mom's china another time! 

I wanted to keep the setting simple and include only the dishes, flatware and crystal goblets.  I even used the tablecloth we got all those years ago.  I may incorporate them in another table setting sometime but I've really enjoyed using them this way.  Thanks, Kathleen, for encouraging me to take a walk down Memory Lane!

I love the delicate little detail in those dishes with the scalloped rim. It gives them what I'm calling a "country house" elegance if that makes sense. They just go so well with the name of this blog. Lovely.

I can see why you love this pretty pattern! I think Pfaltzgraff patterns are all delightful. This one is new to me, so I'm glad you shared it! It does have a nice, "homey" feel!

I have always loved pfazgraf dinnerware too, altho I have never
had any myself, one of my Sister-
in-laws had the blue and I always
admired it. It makes for a beautiful table, and you can really
dress it up or down, which makes it so versatile.
Your pattern is very pretty and makes for a lovely cozy table.
Blessings, Nellie

Simple and beautiful friend! You got it so right with the style of your set! It is funny but so many of the people that I know that registered for china now look back and think that it does not fit their lifestyles at all. How wise of you at that time to know this! And a very happy early wedding anniversary! I hope that we are blessed to get to 26 years! A wonderful week to you pal! Nicole xo
