I told myself I would not let wedding posts consume the blog, but I ran into an issue I think other people might identify with – the wedding registry – so I thought I’d expound upon the topic. Jordan and I have lived together long enough to have gathered all of the “essentials” for operating in our home, but we haven’t quite invested in the non-essentials like serving ware, an actual full set of dishes that match, etc. And if you haven’t noticed by now, I’m super non-traditional, so china patterns are not happening either. At the same time, we’ve been living in our house long enough to know where we need better entertaining items. So what did we end up including on our registry for this area of our home?

Clearly, I picked out mostly everything… Jordan’s list consisted of a bike rack (he has no bike), an ice cream scoop, a plastic trash can which I have since swapped out with a nicer version and about 5 different types of wine racks. 

Here are the questions I asked to help plan my entertaining picks:

What colors/styles match our kitchen?
What are we currently lacking?
If we held a dinner party for 6-8 people, what would we need?
If we hosted a shower or party at our home, what would we need?
What items could be fun monogramed?
How can we make our countertops more visually appealing?
What are we missing for the bar cart?

Thanks to all of our sweet and thoughtful friends for all of the gifts you see above! Part two of the registry series will be coming up soon!
