If you follow this blog, you know how much I like chargers.
No, I don’t mean teenage daughters who want to go to Forever 21 with my credit card.
I am talking about the service plate kind of charger, as in dinnerware.
I just had to share my latest find, above, pictured with my Spode Christmas china.
I found this on sale at Bed Bath & Beyond (online).
Green-rimmed bone china chargers.
About 12 1/4″ in diameter.
$6.99 plus free shipping. Yes, $6.99. Whoo-hoo.
The best part of this, is, it looks good with my other china as well.
My Lenox Autumn
And it even looks nice with my set of Hunt Scene china (not sure of the pattern name) by Royal Doulton:
I just had to share my good luck in finding this great deal!
I think the quality is amazing for the price (there was a $24.99 sticker underneath the label).
Clearly, this is a very versatile piece of dinnerware.
You can check it out here. I received my charger plates within a week of ordering them!
Here is a simple tip for making your holiday table look better.
Use a charger plate under your dinner plate. It gives a nice layered effect.
Sometimes called “service plates,” they are used to cradle the first course plates,
and are usually (though not always) removed for the entrée plate.
However, etiquette dictates that they are always removed from the table before the dessert course.
Here are some good looks for both casual and formal Christmas settings using chargers.
