The other day I ran across these green lacquered chargers on sale. Since the price was right, I decided to buy them to to use with my Christmas china. I thought it was a very good buy, especially since I could also use them with my everyday china. I am a sucker for anything I use for special occasions that I can also use every day. It seems a shame not to enjoy things all the time. I guess it seems kind of silly to have Christmas china because I only use that during the holiday season but I do also make exceptions for Christmas.
Above is my everyday china sitting on the new charger. I think it is really interesting how different the chargers look with different plates.
My daughter disagreed with my choice because she said my Christmas Spode would look better on a red charger because the green would stand out more. I think she might have been right, but I still have more use for green chargers. I thought I would be semi-practical about my choice, especially since chargers are not the most practical thing I could purchase.
There is still time to swap the green for red so I would really like your opinion. What do you think? Should I have purchased the red or is green the best choice, or should I take them back and look for something different?
