I ordered 2 sets as I wanted 8 place settings and just love the shapes, the flower designs, and the fact that all go from microwave to dishwasher. They were carefully packed and arrived in perfect condition too.

If you're looking for a dinnerware set that's different than the rest--this is YOUR set. I am tired of stripes, mosaics, flowers, etc. And this set is exactly what I was looking for. Edgy get classy. It definitely gets a reaction from our dinner guests and it's a positive one. Even my husband likes them. Now THAT's saying something! You want different? You can't go wrong with this set. And it definitely is not trashy.

The dinner plates are much larger than I'm used to, but great as serving platters. They can handle a whole baked chicken. I use the salad plates as dinner plates. The handles on the cups are rather skinny which makes them a bit awkward with unbalanced weight and grasping space. The cool thing they don't show you in the pictures is the little rose floral design in the bottom on the bowls; always nice to see it again at the end of my salad or cereal. The sides of the bowls are quite steep which makes them fit really well in my tiny apartment cupboards but makes estimating the amount of milk in my cereal a bit wonky. Overall, they're classy and sturdy enough for everyday use. The packing was almost obsessively protective when they arrived. I'm quite pleased with the dinnerware, the shipping and the timely service.

I thought that most of the dinnerware was the darker shade of brown with the light pattern. That only is the case with the salad plate. Everything else is the lighter shade of brown with the dark pattern. That disappointed me. But other than that, I love the dishes. They are great quality and work well in the microwave and dishwasher. The dinner plate is very large. Makes my normal food portions look very small. I'd rather have a big plate than a small one though. I'd recommend these.

The dishes are really beautiful and my family is enjoying using them. So far there are no "chip" or breakage issues and they are fine in the dishwasher. They are quite large, though. I do not have a problem with the size, although when I saw the cups I had an "Alice in Wonderland" moment. I thought I would not get them into my cupboards. They did fit with some adjustments. Overall, we are very happy with them. They arrived well packed and quickly.

Beautiful dishware. Durable. I've used it in the microwave and it performs and holds up very well. Food and drink warmed up without problems occurring in the makeup of the dishes or cups. Cups are excellent for coffee, my husband's fingers fit comfortably in the handles.. My husband was so impressed with the quality and design of these dishes HE ordered another set of 4 dishes!

Very happy with these bowls. The brown shades of the flowers blend in well with other dinnerware sets and the simplicity of the pattern looks rich and refined. I will definitely purchase another set of cereal bowls.

Nice and bright, I got different colors to mix together. Nice lip on the plates, nicer than a wide rim since these keep, for example, salad dressing on the plate. These go nicely with other dishes too, I have some 'elegant' dessert plates with flowers that go great with these dishes, this green is actually a nice 'neutral' that goes with lots of other dishes.

My husband and I were looking for our first set of dishware for our fresh start. He wanted something a bit contemporary. This was the end choice. They are well weighted with a beautiful design. They are not super shiny, which I like. I've had them for a few weeks now. No complaints about wear or breaking. They are amazing dishes for the price.

When I was younger, a neighbor and family friend owned these dishes, I've always wanted them. My husband forced me to buy something I wanted and I am thrilled! They look as lovely as I remember them! I especially love that the cups have flowers on the inside too!!! Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!

This is beautiful dinnerware. I showed them to a friend before I ordered them and her reaction only confirmed that I should order them. I loved the color combination as it is shown on the website but I was disappointed to find out that the actual print does not appear the same on the bowls or the cups. Those have only one brown flower even though there is room for at least one or more, making them appear very dark brown. The red flower which does appear along with the other two colored flowers on both the dinner and salad plates really sets the pattern off and makes it very striking but without it, not so much unless you are a huge fan of brown hues only. The price was so good that I did order two sets and I will keep them because I know the quality is very good/excellent and they will last a long time. Just disappointed that the color scheme was not fully carried through to all pieces.

I bought these dishes to use as everyday china. They're very attractive, though the color, particularly on the bowls and saucers, is a little darker than it looks in the picture. They're very colorful and cheerful, which is what I wanted and was not able to find in stores. The price was also good for a set of this quality. I also wanted conventional cups and saucers and many sets these days come with mugs instead, so this set worked well for me in that capacity as well. I would recommend this set if you like colorful dishware that will brighten up your table!

I was hesitant due to the price tag but wanted something different than the ordinary Christmas dinnerware that could go from casual or to the dinner table. This platter and the salad plate set was exceptional. The colors, the different floral patterns, and quality were so worth the expense. My guests commented on how beautiful they were over and over. I can very easily get away with using these throughout the year.

The shape is interesting, and the splash of the flower color is great. The salad/soup bowls are identical, only larger. I bought these to augment the Red Vanilla "Extreme White" dinnerware (check those reviews). I really like the more "delicate" look of this quality bone china. There's a formal gracefulness about it, that works for both entertaining and everyday. I'm going to also order the Summer Sun mugs, as the Extreme White came with teacups and saucers. Note that Extreme White, Summer Sun, Odette Platinum, and Orbit are all the same china, with the difference being the patterns. I really love the lines of this china!

Love the pattern - it's exactly as shown in the picture. Keep in mind that these plates are a slightly assymetrical triangular shape and are not round. The imprinted flower is beautiful and the quality seems great.
Whether you have a light-filled courtyard and gazebo or a dark, forgotten corner in a room, flowers and plants provide a dash of color and life in a space. Decorating with fresh flowers demands a certain amount of maintenance involving plucking dried or wilted blossoms, changing water and supplying fresh blooms. If you don't have the time and money to invest in fresh flower arrangements, consider silk plants and floral arrangements instead. Start simply and gradually add in more decorative touches as you incorporate flowers into your home decor.

By using just a few items, many of which you can find at home, you can easily create simple, fresh flower arrangements that will rival costly bouquets from a floral shop.

You've seen end tables located near recliners, on either side of the bed, behind a couch, against a wall and next to bookshelves. End tables look fabulous as a room's main focus point or merely as an afterthought, but you waste their potential if you just let them stand empty next to a bed or couch.

Everybody knows there's a list out there somewhere that tells you the perfect gift to give for any wedding anniversary. But who can remember what's on that list? Here, at your fingertips, are the gift-giving clues you need, along with links to find these items. In Victorian England, it was quite fashionable to have large celebrations for anniversaries, and it's likely that this list of traditional anniversary gifts came from that time, although no one knows the exact origin for certain.

Chinese New Year is one of the most widely observed holidays, celebrated in Chinese communities across the world.

A wedding anniversary, whether the first or the twenty-fifth, is a milestone worth celebrating. Giving a thoughtful gift to your partner is a wonderful way to show affection and commemorate the time you've spent together. Finding the perfect gift isn't always easy, especially if you've been giving each other gifts for decades. Where do you look for new ideas? This list is the best place to start. Each gift idea has a link to the department where you can shop for the items. In England, during the Victorian era, celebrating anniversaries with gifts and parties became very fashionable, and it didn't take long for the trend to reach the United States. The traditional list of anniversary gift ideas came from this time. Then, in 1937, a group of jewelers decided to update the list to include more modern items (and more items that they sold in their stores -- diamonds show up on the list three times). That's where this list of modern wedding anniversary gifts came from. Many items from the original list appear here, and we've offered even more contemporary interpretations of the ideas. If you want to give a creative gift, you can use this list as inspiration.
