mix and match

8.09.2011

Did you register for bone or fine china? Are you planning on it when you tie-the-knot? I never did. I just mix and match with Vietri and Astier. I knew I would never get sick of white on white on white. But suddenly the urge for some mix and match fine antique china (and a skosh of new china too) on my dining table will not leave me. Wouldn't this be fun?


(not my toes but cute toes)



All of the different colors and patterns compliment each other so well. Dinner party decor heaven.

I'm on a mission for the old, the new, one plate at a time, one bowl at a time, colorful fine and bone china. The possibilities are endless when you have an assortment like the ones above....showers, dinner parties and table decor.



Wouldn't mix and match plates set a nice tone for a girlie party? This company rents vintage dishes for showers and wedding!

Wanting to start your own collection? Antique fine or bone china can be purchased premixed here. I have also bought a plate at a time at antique stores and my favorite- The Houston Guild Shop.



I love these one of a kind pieces found on etsy.

Has anyone ever thrown a party with mixed china patterns? I would love to see pics!

See you soon, Alli.

Really liked your ideas of mix and match. It reminds me of my aunt who use to do such things. She has now made this her profession. Recently went along with her for her meeting at corporate event venues San Francisco. Had a great time there.
