If I had a dining room like this....

If I had a dining room like this I would throw dinner parties left and right.  I would use these plates, these glasses, and this ice bucket.  A girl can dream, right?  But seriously, these more affordable options would do the trick for me as well- these plates, these glasses (they are just so good....the drama!), and this copper flatware.  It's so fun to see that there are amazing choices pretty much for anything at any given price point.  Do you love gathering people around your dinner table?

Some good links for you to peruse this weekend:
