Hah - you might not think that after you see mine.
When my wife and I first got married, her grandmother gave us a nice set of family heirloom china. It was very pretty... blue with some sort of prairie theme... cat tails and stuff.
Problem is that it didn't match anything in our house. We still have it, but have only used it twice in the last 20 years.
So we decided that we would buy a set to use for every day. We ended up going to a restaurant supply business and bought the set below. It's plain white. No design. Nothing.
I call the pattern "diner special." We use it for every occasion, including holidays and dinner parties. Best thing about it is that if I happen to break a plate (which hasn't happened yet), I know the store still carries it and likely will for years to come.
