I am hosting a table at church for an anniversary dinner. It's an adults only affair with china and the like. The table seats 10 people, but I only have nice china for 8. I have been meaning to purchase a couple extra settings for years now. I just did. The order includes 2 dinner plates, 2 salad plates, and 2 bread and butter plates. Only problem is, it's a retired Royal Worcester set. So, my 6 plates cost over $400. Ouch, and they aren't even the fancy ones! I bought 4 settings of a pattern called Marquis and 4 settings of a pattern called Charlotte. I intersperse the two patterns together and it makes a stunning statement, if I do say so myself.
