I visited my parents this weekend because my mom's birthday is today. My brother and grandfather came, too. It was so nice to have some great family time! Last night, Mom and I scored an amazing deal on eight place settings of Oscar de la Renta Gold Dresden china at an antique auction. I'm seriously obsessed with how sweet and elegant it is. Brandon and I had Lenox Platinum Pearl china on our wedding registry, but knowing that eight place settings were going to cost over $1500 kind of made my stomach hurt. I knew we had to have wedding china, but I think that getting china with my mom on a whim at an auction gives it such a fun memory.
The china looks brand new -not one knick on it. I looked it up online and saw that it was discontinued in 1993, but you can buy it from replacement retailers for around $130 per place setting.
I got EIGHT place settings, a 12-inch platter, a vegetable serving bowl, and the cream and sugar pieces for a whopping $150!
It has the sweetest thin gold rim. I just love the scalloped edges!
