Even though mixing different patterns is very trendy, I am actually a big fan of simple dinnerware. But when it comes to salad and dessert plates I like to mix it up. When you have a solid color dinnerware set, you can easily mix fun and trendy plates with them without spending a fortune for a trendy dinnerware set. Dessert size plates also make great gifts for the Holidays for the same reason – they can be mixed with other sets or used only for breakfast or dessert without a large amount of other serving platters needed. Here are four fun patterns that are IN right now and would make a great Holiday gift.
