When Jordan and I got married two years ago, I decided not to register for a second set of formal dinnerware. I just felt like it was something we wouldn’t use very often! Opting out of that registry item, however, left me without a second set of dinnerware to use for special occasions and parties. When I saw these black plates last month, I knew they would be a great investment that I could use for entertaining in the years to come! They’ve been such a fun and festive change from our everyday dinnerware. I paired them with our gold flatware and these gold trimmed cups to create a neutral, moody tablescape that’s sure to put our guests in the holiday spirit! 

Did I’m mention the large plates are only $3, the small ones are $2, and those gorgeous glasses are $5? Talk about a major deal! I’ve got big plans for using these beauties as the foundation for my tablescapes in the seasons to come. Here’s how I’m using them this Christmas!
