Our Favorite White China Patterns
When it comes to china patterns, you don’t have to regale us with tales of hardship and indecision surrounding the task of selecting the perfect pattern. We understand just how hard it is to commit to something that could very well last your lifetime—quite fitting that this decision is typically made around the time of tying the knot, no?
It can be overwhelming to say the least when faced with the hundreds—no, thousands—of china patterns out there. Our minds can change day-to-day thanks to our every-changing temperament, mood, and level of sass at any particular moment. What if we’re registering after a spunky altercation and select a fiery red pattern that we later decide should have been a more traditional blue? No, we simply cannot always be expected to have it together.
The solution? Go white, all white. It’s simple, clean, elegant, and classic all wrapped up in a beautifully bright white package. With white china, you can style it differently every time according to your mood or type of event, making it the most versatile of all china styles. Mix and match different white patterns, use other pops of color or texture in the tablescape, pair with gold or silver accents—possibilities are endless. It can also go more “everyday” than some more intricate patterns, for those who want to use it often and not save it for special occasions only.
Think of white china as the perfect combination of being a choice rooted in tradition, while also showing modernity with its minimalist style. And the crisp white background will truly let your best Southern cooking shine on the plate; we have no room for attention hogs here. Sometimes it’s best to take the “less is more” approach. Here are some of our favorite white china styles.
