This set is adorable. It’s very light and has something I wouldn’t have thought about, grips. The grips are designed into the bottom of the plates and bowls;. This is nice so your plates and bowls won’t slide around on each other or on the table. I’ve decorated my table for the holidays and the bowls that I’ve set on top of a plate can easily be pushed around, which if you have kids can be a bit of a hazard, so I really like this feature. They are thin and light , not bulky at all. Although they are thin they don’t feel delicate like your grandmas china set. I usually like around plates but for a slightly different feel I chose the rectangular shape and I like it. This is a fun set especially for when you have guest over! Can’t wait to see these in action.
