I know this is going to come off selfish when so many others have true problems today (and every day) that I could not imagine dealing with but I thought this may be a fun thread.

I use my fine china, silver and crystal for everyone.

I'm lucky, I do not have stress on Christmas Day, I am not the host. Plus we all kinda pitch in on Christmas Day for a lot of the work.

Is there a way to purchase plates/dishes that would compliment your current set? I have a pattern for Christmas that I add to every few years as I see it at the after Christmas sales.

I love the look of mismatched on purpose china.

Yes, I always used the real stuff for everyone as well. Even as a baby, dd ate off a real plate and had a porcelain cup, not plastic. I just figured I wouldn't want to drink from plastic every day, so why should she.

When do you use the Christmas dishes as you said you don't host Christmas?
