Before our wedding, back in 2005, I registered for white everyday china. I just wanted something clean and simple. Four years later, I am a little bored with my white dishes, but I am not completely sold on patterned dishes either. I like that white dishes allow the food to really stand out and while there are several patterns out there that I like, I am afraid that I would tire of them even more quickly. Do you have a preference either way? What kind of plates do you have?
