Silverware! What did I choose for my everyday?



You're DYING to know kittens aren't you? I launched an exhaustive search. I even ordered some sets of silverware and SENT THEM BACK!

I went to Macy's, Bloomies, Pottery Barn and on line to Ross Simons, Horchow, and Ralph Lauren. I wanted something substantial, I hate wimpy silverware, but also nothing fancier than my silver:

Towle Old Master (pictured above)


I wanted something traditional, nothing too expensive or ornate, just simple and pretty. Soooooo...I decided on this:

Reed and Barton, Everyday, Kendrick.





82 piece set, normally $175, on sale for $150, but with Bloomies coupon $125! Loooove that!


I tried a Henckles set, an Oneida set and a few more. This was the best set ever and I am so happy!


PS Hubby and I went to see Cirque Du Soleil's Kooza last night! I'll post more on that in another post!

Oh lala! I like it. I also HATE wimpy silveware. Where does this hate come from?

You are right, my silverware needs to be heavy and non-wimpy (good word choice) Both are beautiful choices.

I remember having to test out each knife to see if it would pass my weight test. My everyday flatware is actually heavier than my silverware.

I seriously love that pattern! I've been meaning to get it and then engrave our initial onto it...so chic! As far as the preppy challenge goes I fail too sometimes I totally have track lighting and spot and I have wall to wall in my basement. I just leave those items out! xoxo

Thanks for being "there for me". I can't blog for a year to 18 months, but that doesn't mean I can't comment, right?!

I wanted this exact set that my two fabulous lesbian pals have in their Martha's Vineyard house. But I wouldn't wait for the next bloomies sale so I settled. I love them.

Love it! I am obsessed with silverware! I am glad there is someone else out there who understands.

I love your new flatware pattern! It's even better that you got such a great deal!

Have a nice weekend!
