How nice....I love elegant and that Noritake set is awesome! When we first got married, my MIL worked at Oneida and another relative worked at Reading China and Glass. They asked us to pick out silverware and china patterns (which we did) but no one ever bought us anything then
I remember picking out a gorgeous black and gold designed Noritake China set and a really cool Oneida pattern with gold in it too. Pretty soon I should have enough room and a china hutch that I would have a place to start getting a nice set. Would give my DH something to get me every year for gifts then.
