You guys know how I am obsessed with Haviland China, and wish I bought it when I got married and had credits at various stores etc, and how I will have it one day (my husband actually made this deal with me last year: cook x number of times, and he would be HAPPY to buy me the china. I failed.) Anyway…
West Elm just came out with these banded desert plates, and they are dead ringers, in a more pastel, french macaroon kinda way. I haven’t seen them in person yet, but they look great in the pictures. I wish they came as a full set… but I feel like the desert plate is a great size for appetizers before a meal and dessert later on… Plus you could always layer it with another dinner plate.
They are on sale now for $6! So I think it would be prudent to pick up about 20-30. A wise friend of mine told me to always have a simple cheap dish in service for 30 at your house. You never know when you might be having a party… and mixing and matching dishes (unless intentionally and artfully done) is just so déclassé, darling. I sound like the countess Luann, now, don’t I?
So, as far as I am concerned, the question is: all the colors as a set, or just all black?
Buy them HERE.
