We have one major dilemma, however... What to do about "fine china"? We are so not fine china people. Like not at all. But when we told that to the registry lady at Macy's, she pointed us in the direction of simplyFine by Lenox. It's super practical: freezer safe, oven safe, microwave safe, and dishwasher safe...and the pièce de résistance...chip resistant. Plus, it has totally relevant designs (read: not stuffy, not trendy, just relevant). Our favorite is Flourish, but there are several that are super cute.
Herein lies our problem. Macy's carries it for $143.00 - that's not a cheap set of china. But, if it looks like everyday dishes, and acts like everyday dishes, then why not just register for some extra nice everyday dishes and call it a day? Why have people pay $143.00 per set (about $1,700 total) when they could spend less than half that for something similar?
What to do, what to do?? Thoughts?
