It would be great to serve all your holiday meals from fine china and porcelain but perhaps not possible. Or is it?
If you are a few pieces short of you full service then there might be some places that you can pick up the rest of your pieces with out spending full price.
If you don't need to match your dishes then take a trick from the catering business. Caterers always know that having plain white serving dishes means that you can garnish them so they will look great.
