I recently moved to New York, and had to furnish my new apartment from scratch. This included kitchen supplies, and the first thing on my list was white dinnerware.
The white plate is the crisp white shirt of the entertaining arsenal. It's versatile, goes with everything, and never goes out of style. Because it's so classic, I knew that they were pieces worth investing in. I plan to have my Elsie Green classic white dinnerware for years to come, and they've already gotten a lot of mileage at my spring dinner parties.
We put together six place settings featuring our star player, the white plate, so take a scroll and take this as your sign to add these plates to your summer tables.
