Stemware

Which will be the best pattern choice for stemware?  This gal looks somewhat disenchanted with the process of picking out what cups will go best with the china pattern, that this soon to be married couple will use in their new home.

I never got married.  Never registered for marital gifts.  Never started a hope chest as a teenager.  Plates and glasses, cups and bowls are just something to serve up my meals on.  More often than not I use paper plates to save doing lots of dishes.  I notice in lots of home that their cabinets are full of mismatched cups and glasses like my cabinets. 
When things go awry as they often do, I just need to ask myself, "will this be important in five years?"

  3. I admire style in others homes, but I'm hopeless in my own home. You've probably heard me say before but we only have a dining table in the living room. Although the dogs each have a nice dog couch.
