Summer evenings are almost upon us, and that means gathering fresh summer ingredients, lighting the grill and sharing casual dinners with friends and family. If you are like me, you rarely (if ever) pull out your fine china for entertaining. I often wonder what it would be like to register as a bride in this day and age. The options brides have today seem so much greater than when I registered almost 20 years ago. I feel certain I would have collected much more casual and versatile pieces that could be mixed and matched for any occasion.
Having said that, I have purchased “I don’t know how many” white platters, plates and bowls from Target and West Elm that I use EVERY day. Target pieces are so affordable and durable. Target also does a great job for offering pieces to update your table for the season that won’t break the bank. Here are a few of my current favorite purchases.
