Table Setting with White Dinnerware

October seems to be flying by and I'm starting to get excited (and slightly overwhelmed) that Thanksgiving is almost here (33 days!). I love having my family together and of course, I love cooking up a feast (at least part of it). This year, I'm happy to say that I will be setting my table with our white dinnerware. And I love it.

We searched far and wide to find a simple, beautiful product line that would hold up to daily wear while maintaining its simple charm. We decided on Pillivuyt Porcelain, made in France. FRANCE! So they may look delicate, but they're sturdy. I use them in my microwave and my oven. They're freezer safe as well (I haven't yet had a need to put a dish in the freezer). Yes, they are more expensive than some of the popular lines from home good or department stores but let me tell you, they are worth every penny. Unlike my previous dinnerware, no chips. And the look is timeless and classic - they're both my formal dinnerware and my every day settings - and they coordinate with other patterned pieces for any look or occasion.

For special occasions, I've been adding different pieces from the Hotel Silver Collection. So far I've used the pitcher for flowers and serving spoons, and I've used the footed bowls for nuts and dried fruit as well as decorative elements (to add color).

While I was visiting Cassandra a few weeks ago, I took these quick photos to show how the dinnerware looks paired with just a few items (and a couple stems of gorgeous hydrangea). Simple, beautiful, and elegant without being uninviting or stark.
