After I posted on Aerin Lauder’s talk about her book Entertaining Beautifully last September, I started using my fine china daily. It’s a Fine Time for Fine China, an article in this week’s NYTs, reminded me of that post as it’s based on the same premise. To make things easier, I selected a few pieces from my favorite patterns and moved them from the pantry to a drawer in the kitchen. The easy access made all the difference. Now I have breakfast on my mother’s, grandmother’s, and great-grandmother’s china almost every day.
