My husband and I are so enjoying the Villeroy and Boch "Toscana" Dinnerware. We picked this out for our wedding china. It has been one year this week, and we are still very happy with it. The china settings make table so beautiful, and it is very durable for a busy family. This is the china we use every day. The colors just make me smile.
Breathtaking, brightens up the dinning table, goes well with "Boston Blue" and/or "Boston Green" glasses. and also with "my garden" green bowls. I bought the whole dinner set when they were on sale. This is the dinner set I am and will be using for my guests.
very pretty floral design, and the simpler pattered plates are a bit more masculine. I particularly like that one is able to mix and match the pieces for a more interesting table! I will say, though, that the pieces are heavy and the dinner plates are a good inch wider than my current sized plates, so consequently they won't fit flat- stacked in my cupboard. Overall, very cheery, detailed (e.g. slightly scalloped painted edges and an understated fern design on the simpler plates) and of fine quality. I do wait until they are 50% off, which is every few months.
Yellow and blue are my favorite colors and I think this color combination is just so bright and cheery. It just makes eating food of it more pleasing. I love to entertain, so I take this out and mix and match a plain Manior setting that I have (also from Villeroy & Boch that I bought a number of years ago). I get bored easily so I buy pieces here and there of new collections to keep me happy, instead of buying the whole collection. I just wish Villeroy & Boch would offer more pieces in this pattern. I just love the pasta and the fluted bowls and I love the larger 10oz. mug! Overall you won't be disappointed!
I got the beginnings of this set in the store, and loved it so much that I ordered more online! Just received today. These are so cheery and bright, it makes my day! I would actually recommend ordering online over in-store. Once you've seen it and know what you want, it's much easier to order online. I received my pieces beautifully packed and in perfect condition. Also, at the store, they put an additional sticker on each piece that I had to pick off later--the online ones only had one sticker and it came off easily. HIGHLY recommend.
This dinnerware is fantastic! I love the ability to mix and match the dinner and salad plates, florals for the women and blue rimmed for the men :) When we redo our kitchen, I'll want a cabinet with glass shelves so that I can display it. I like that the dinnerware can be used either as a formal place setting or for everyday use. It's durable, bright, and so cheerful on a dark winter morning. I, too, wish there were a butter dish as I like a butter dish on the table; however, you can't go wrong with this beautiful dinnerware! I will truly enjoy adding to this collection and will not be shy about dropping hints as to what I want for Christmas!
I registered for this set when I got married in March 2009. We use this set every day and have been very impressed with how durable it is. Once I accidentally banged one of the mugs against the glass plate in the microwave - luckily the mug survived without a scratch even though the glass broke. The whole set has seemed almost unbreakable and we've been pleased. The items are dishwasher and microwave safe. Our whole set was shipped to us by Macy's, and then went through another move when we bought a house, and nothing at all was broken! I also just love how cheery the set is. A word for the wise: the chargers are MASSIVE and weigh A LOT. The one negative I've found is that there isn't a gravy boat or butter plate - both items I would have used fairly frequently.
This beautiful dinnerware collection is the perfect accompaniement to a bright, light kitchen. We have a yellow, white and blue kitchen and it looks beautiful on our table or in our cabinets. It washes well in the dishwasher and works in the microwave. Macy's has good sales of it and if you can't find it in the store, you can always order it on line. It comes sooner than you think it will and is packed safely and arrives in one piece. I would highly reccommend buying these dishes. They are excellent and the sales are excellent and ordering them is too.
