This was not the original intention of my post. I went looking for Marchesa's new line of china by Lenox that was designed to compliment their Fall 2010 wedding dresses (genius marketing), however, the power of google somehow found me on NeimanMarcus.com where I was sucked into looking at several other china designs.
For example, Lenox carries kate spade's line and she has one particular design called "larabee dot" and save the missing 'r', you can see why I wanted all the crytal items when I registered for my wedding four years ago. Much to my delight, she has added items to this line and I have picked out a few birthday wishes...
1. ) They did not have these plates when I got married. I wouldn't want the whole set, I don't like things too matchy (Actually, now that I am thinking about it, I should do a post on my china- it is really wonderful and unique), but with that said I would love some dinner or salad plates to pair with other more colorful ones.
2) Also high on my list, a few of these goblets. For two reason a) it would be awesome to be able to say "I'm drinking wine out of a goblet" and b) 2 out of 2 of these I used to have fell subject to my overly zealous love affair with wine... they are apparently really fragile after a few drinks...sad.
3)How cute is this guy with his black polka dots?? I think it would be gorgeous on a Christmas table.
So that should keep you thinking for the next two months until my birthday arrives. And honestly, Im not that picky, I'd settle for serving dish :)
