Hello Everyone!
I am so excited to share this post with y’all! As you may know, I recently moved to Norfolk, Virginia for a new reporter position. My apartment is quite small, only 557 sqft, but the kitchen is absolutely beautiful! Jonathan and I decided we were going to have brunch at home one morning and I thought it would be the perfect chance to show my table setting for special occasions. I am still working on building my home goods, including tableware, flatware and glassware. Since it’s usually just me, I only buy two of what I need.

I am in love with this Ceres Anthropologie dinner collection. Made of glazed earthenware, it is dishwasher and microwave safe, which is┬áso functional. The embossed trim is stunning and so unique, pictures don’t do it justice! The only thing I’ve noticed is food can get stuck in the trim, so I would take care to either wash the set as soon as you’re finished eating (what I do) or be sure to soak them. I got the dinner plate and the soup bowl for now, which I use for pasta and rice dishes. It’s the perfect portion size for me and Johnny. I plan on getting the side plates and other pieces later on.

Since the Ceres plates are white, I am accenting this table setting with a pop of color. These printed bowls from west elm caught my eye. I love how they are different on the outside than the inside! Also, I love these bright turquoise dip bowls, which are perfect for all the Vietnamese sauces Johnny and I can’t live without, including fish sauce!
My home is very much still a process, but I am slowly starting to add in pieces I know I’ll keep for years and years to come.
