Candace (left), Julie (center) and I were recently invited to Lerant - a luxury tableware and home decor store located across from the Galleria, in the same strip mall as the Cheesecake factory.
I'm gonna level with you guys. I didn't think china was something I cared about. I didn't register for any when I got married and because Macy has an ongoing food fight with her plates, and my kitchen in general, I often use paper. #sorrynotsorry
Five minutes in Lerant, however, and I realized that china is amazing, and dare I say, exciting. Who knew there were so many non-white options? I thought all china was the same fragile, fancy stuff used only on the set of Downton Abbey or by people in a tax bracket far higher than mine.
Suddenly, however, I could see myself on The Real Housewives of Houston (because that's happening and gonna be a thing) pulling out my fancy plates and later throwing them at my guests in a rosé fueled fiasco because, ratings. Obvi.
Our job for the day, was to put together a setting, reflective of our personal style.
This is what I came up with. Almost. I also had some fantastic zebra napkins picked out but Julie and Candace kept giving me the "over our dead body" look so I gave up.
And let them put the finishing touches on my setting while I posed for dumb pictures like this. We all have our strengths.
And now its time for the giveaway!!!!
