This spring, kate spade new york has introduced some new porcelain dinnerware to their Lenox offerings. I am very interested because this year is my 20th anniversary and I want to get new china to celebrate! I have really good Royal Doulton Heather china which is cream with a gold band. I find that it is too formal and simple for most of my entertaining. I also have a Victorian rose china that is very pretty but quite girly, so I save it for my tea parties and luncheons.
I am in the market for some really nice porcelain dinnerware or some new bone china. Currently, I am liking the kate spade china with the dragonfly in the gold color. Now that I have seen the Market Street Collection, I may choose that as a less expensive, more fun and casual alternative. I am still pressed with the dilemma of "what color?" I should chose. I may go with the green because I don't need anymore pink dishes. I wish there were yellow ones. I am really into yellow right now, but green is close. The blue is nice too and would match almost anything. What would you choose?
