Happy China Week!

Happy Monday and happy China Week! This upcoming weekend Charles and I are celebrating our 2nd anniversary, and as you may know the modern 2 year anniversary gift is china. If you know me or have ever read this blog you know I love themes (A LOT)  so of course last year I decided I wanted to follow the traditional or modern gift/theme for our anniversaries. SO when the fabulous designer of my wedding china approached me to post about their upcoming summer sale I thought it was a perfect "theme" for this week's posts!

Below is three of my favorite (and fabulously affordable) collections that Darbie Angell designed for her CRU Dinnerware line, and a little bit about Darbie herself!


After studying design and growing up in a family that loved to entertain it was only natural for Darbie to blend her two passions. Her goal is for you to not only see, but feel the excitement and obsession that went into the sophisticated designs when you entertain with her dinnerware. You will without a doubt feel her drive to have artistic sophistication in each of the pieces that will be placed on your table and have a sense of the pride and passion that she gives in each piece. While other companies dabble the Retailers floors in Creme’s and Whites Darbie strives to offer Luxurious Metals and Vibrant Colors that will give a Luxe feel to any Tabletop setting. She wants you to feel as if you were decorating your Tablescape with Art. Many of the Collections are hand painted Gold and Platinum which makes it that Art piece and steers away from the Mass Produced pieces that most companies offer. She gets most of her inspiration from travels that she discovers different art pieces, architectural designs and magnificent scenery.
Design is my passion and knowledge, 

Darbie Angell

Lauderdale Collection

Get away from ordinary dining with dreamy Lauderdale dinnerware. Shimmering Platinum dots and bands contrast swaths of Sea Blue in fuss-free, dishwasher-safe Porcelain inspired by a favorite Floridian retreat.

black pearl COLLECTION

We take the formality out of Fine China with Black Pearl dinnerware. Platinum-Banded dots add whimsical flair and a touch of shine to elegant White Porcelain designed for dishwasher use.


The Monaco displays a thick band of Platinum on a white plate. Designer Darbie Angell says, “The champagne flutes and tumblers that I designed were given a nautical expression to portray the feeling of wealth that you experience when you arrive in Monaco. Monaco is one of the largest yachting capitals in the world, and I wanted this collection to look like it would fit on any of the massive yachts”.
