I see quite a few of you use really beautiful china for serving your guests. What are your reasons for choosing your particular china? Are you choosing a china style that matches your B&B? The reason I ask is, we have been drawn to historic and somewhat rustic B&Bs (haven't acquired a place yet - gosh, I'll be so glad when I don't have to be in THAT category anymore) yet I have a complete set of Royal Albert Old Country Roses with lots of accessory pieces and so it would make sense to use those. I wonder how important it is to have service that really matches the style of the B&B or if it's not important at all. Do you feel it's super important to have all the pieces match or do you mix and match? I also wonder about breakage. How often do you deal with cherished pieces of china getting broken? Do you replace with the same? I can't remember if I read it here or somewhere else that the owner used an assortment of interesting pieces from different tea services and that repeat guests looked forward to using what they thought was "their" pattern of china. Sorry if I have too many thoughts/questions going in one post. Always interested in what all of you have to say.
