8 Beautiful Dish Sets You Need on Your Table


8 Beautiful Dish Sets You Need on Your Table

I have a little confession to make. I have a fetish for fine china. I know – it’s a problem. I did scale back last year, but not before I had collected a set of dishes for every holiday (Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas), my wedding dishes, and a few others I’ve found at estate sales (a great place to find vintage collections, by the way). 

I would have collected more sets, but I have to hold myself back since I don’t have room to display them all (and that would be a shame).  My big china hutch is filled to the brim, and that’s the way I like it.

If I could, I would rush out and purchase one of these great sets for my tablescape this holiday season, but since I can’t, maybe you can... Hint, hint!
