Down here in the South, we know a thing or two about china patterns. We know how to create beautiful tablescapes with the family china during holidays and celebrations, and we know that we must carefully choose which pattern to register for when we get married because it's just one of those decisions that will stick with you forever. No pressure, right? Selecting the perfect china pattern comes down to two important factors: taste and timelessness. Everyone has their own style preferences when it comes to china designs and colors; but the most important thing about selecting a china pattern lies in its ability to withstand the turn of time. That's why, time after time, some patterns transcend the evolution of style. Not to say that there aren't some beautiful, more modern patterns to consider, but it's hard to pass up the classics. Take the ever-popular classic blue-and-white china pattern—Blue Willow—for instance. Even the origin of this timeless pattern is, well, a timeless love story. It grew in prominence in 18th-century England, with its inspiration stemming from Chinese ceramics and, most notably, a fable about star-crossed lovers. This (okay…mostly likely made up) love story only enhanced the popularity of the romantic and exotic pattern. The great thing about blue-and-white china patterns, though, besides how classically beautiful they are, is that they present an opportunity to mix and match for a more modern and interesting table. You can mix traditional and modern, intricate and simple, bright and subdued—for a completely original tablescape every time. There's just something about blue-and-white china that makes an elegant, yet bold statement. So, if you're heading to register for your own pattern soon or are just interested in checking out some new options, here are some of our favorite classic and modern blue-and-white patterns.
