{Giveaway} Win a Hostess Set from Sorella Home

“Sisters” and FOFs Linda Green and Terri Casner are giving away this elegant Hostess Set from their company’s Natura line. The set includes a uniquely hand-designed rectangular platter, 4 dipping bowls and a pitcher, all in warm white–ideal for entertaining year round.

To enter, comment below and answer: Do you own fine china? When do you use it? (See all our past winner, here.)

While Linda and Terri aren’t actually sisters, but they’ve been friends for twenty-five years. “People frequently ask if we are sisters…and that really is a better description of our relationship,” says Linda. “We have been through births, deaths, divorces, and many, many, many great laughs!”

When they started their tableware company in July of 2009 they already had a name picked out: Sorella Home. “Sorella” means “sister” in Italian and the two are aficionados of all things Italian.

Terri is Founder and V.P. of Product Development and Linda is V.P. of Marketing for the L.A.- and N.Y.-based company which designs and manufactures handcrafted tableware and home decor made in the U.S. and Europe. Their products have been named a “Bridal Best” by Bridal Guide and featured by HGTV. They are available in Michael C. Fina as well as smaller boutiques.

“Our tagline is ‘reinventing tradition'” says Linda. “Women have been setting the table with loving hands for ages. Sorella Home is where the next generation of “sisters” can bring to life a simple and pure style that is uniquely their own.”

Enter to win a Sorella Home Natura Hostess Set. Comment below and tell us: Do you own fine china? When do you use it?

Thank you for entering. This contest is now closed.

    I had a really nice serving set, nothing too expensive, but nice enough to serve company with. However, I made the mistake of forgetting to close the door to my dishwasher after I loaded it. My dog decided that he would try to get away with licking everything inside the dishwasher clean. When I caught him doing it, I yelled. That scared him enough that he backed away quickly from the dishwasher. Unfortuneately, his dog collar got stuck on the dish rack and when he backed away from the dishwasher, he took the dish rack with him. The dish rack flew out of the dishwasher, landed on the floor and all of the dishes, including my nice serving set, crashed. The good news is that my dog didn’t get hurt. The bad news is that I had to buy new dishes but I didn’t have enoough money to buy a new serving set too.

    I would love a chance to win that beautiful hostess set!

    Having Great Gram’s china she bought from Germany in 1929 is for fun with the girls (none of the fella’s want to touch it). It was once a set for twelve and most of it is still intact as the tea cups and coffee cups as few have a chip or two. But who cares when you have the danty cups in your hands and your talking with your friends of lives and living. Then the Fall & Winter holidays come and out come the Christmas china (yes we use it for Thanksgiving,Chistmas, Winter Birtday’s and New Years). They say if you have it flaunt it. OH Yes, we have a four pieces tea set for the spring, great for sitting and sipping with your sisters. Lovely just lovely!!

I also have some inexpensive china that I use frequently and get compliments on it too! I believe in using all our “fine” things as often as possible because we cannot take it with us and we might as well enjoy it!

    My son received my fine china from me when he got married, since I rarely entertain these days. I think he served me dinner on it once. My daughter got her student and car loans paid by me instead of fine china — at least I know that she got some use out of her gifts. Still, I would love to give her the equivalent of what I gave her brother, since she is now married and has started a family. The Sorella Home Natura Hostess Set would grace her home beautifully, and I would look forward to her entertaining and serving on it (especially if I am invited). 🙂

    I would like to get some that I do like. One I chose was discontinued and the Christmas was too, but I think I may check Replacements if I can ID the pattern name of my mother-in-laws. It is so few it maybe isn’t worth it but I kind of like the soft green border with yellow roses she maybe chose in 1947. I never could afford any so registered for things I needed thing on day I’ll buy some. Some I like has lead paint so don’t want it that much for Italian fine at those prices it ought to not be lead paint but the pigments are nice and bright.

    I did! Time, illness, divorce, children getting married, all some of the reasons it is time to replenish and renew my home decor and table settings. About the only thing remaining are some pretty fine china cups and saucers, and mugs. I did have a cherished service for 12 in St Catherine’s of Russia beautiful blue, gold, and white pattern… sadly moving at one point from Europe back to America, it was “lost” in transit… an expensive loss, not only financially, but emotionally. I recently had a friend give a gift of Royal Albert pieces to me, but it is not my style. I like more classic pieces, and my colors are whites, creams, blues, pale greens, and such…

    Our mother always taught us that china was meant to be used. Growing up we used hers at least once a week for Sunday dinners. So now, her set is easily accessible to alternate with stoneware for daily use. I have another set used often as well as various odd pieces and small sets, all are used. A special treasure is a small service for 4 of lovely Rosenthal purchased in Germany and a Hungarian tea set from when I lived there years ago. So whether special personal memories or family–mother, grandmother, great grandmother–I love it and use it. Friends are surprised!

    I inherited a set from my great uncle, and since it was seldom used, its still in pretty good shape! I try and use it whenever i have guests over, it is a very complete set and I think of it as timeless. The lines of my own china are similar to the ones shown in the natura items, (rather squareish) and i think they would be perfectly complemented!

She and my dad were married 53 years before she passed away in 2008. I use it for anything and everything. You may eat hot dogs or steaks at my house on the “good” china.

    I own four sets of china, two from my wedding (30 years ago). One set by Lenox I use on New Years’, Easter, Anniversay, birthdays and for other special occassions. I have an everday set of china by Mikasa which I use for breakfast and during the Spring and Summer. My third set has pieces in various colors which I use during Fall and Winter, or when I want to play up a certain color scheme – red and blue for July 4th, red for Valentine’s or gold, green and brown for Thanksgiving! My fourth set is a set of Christmas china which I bought two years ago and love! It adds a special festive quality as a decoration during the holidays and for special meals during the holiday season. My daughters told me they wish I had bought it when they were little so they could have grown up with it through the years.

    But, my very first china was a set of warm white inherited from an aunt to which I added many more pieces over a 15 year period. However, this set was lost during a move, and I’ve never had the heart to start tracking the pieces down again!

    I chose a pattern for my bridal registry. They told me I would be given notice if the pattern was canceled and I would get 18 months to complete my set. Well, I got married in July and the next Valentine’s Day I went to the store to get another place setting – and the pattern was canceled. I’ve worked long and hard to track down enough pieces to call my set “usable” but will probably never see it complete. I use it for holidays and family celebrations, or when special company comes to visit.

    I would love to have my mother’s set of chine. She collected it piece by piece with green stamps! But, my brother inherited the house and he’s being very stubborn about letting any of us have anything from the contents – even if we paid for it. So, it’s packed in the attic, not being used or appreciated.

    I inherited my china from my Grandmother and Great Aunt. Haviland New York Arcadia — delicate flowers of yellow, pink and lavender. In the 1910s and 20s, having “expensive” china was almost unheard of, but these two wonderfully creative women decided to buy the same china and crystal! They bought equal pieces and when one needed to use it, the other would box her half up and bring it to her and vice versa. They took wonderful care of this china for more than 75 years! It was an honor to inherit it and when we use it we remember those smart, creative women.

I was not shopping for china when I entered this antique shop.

    I do own a small set of fine china that I found at a junk/antique store five years ago. It is limited in quantity (set of six) and it is seldom used because I changed the look of my dining room. It has gold leaf, I am a silver person. Consequently, it spends most of the year hidden. I did not register for fine china when I married, my life seemed too casual – then with kids and animals at foot, it was never a priority. Now when I host dinner parties, I prefer white and like mixing pieces, adding the color w/ linens, and centerpieces. This china is simply lovely, has an architectural component, yet seems very feminine and practical. Oh, to own a beautiful set…

    I own a beautiful antique china set from Bavaria, given to my family by my father-in-law. We use some of the serving pieces during the holidays. They are a yellow rose, gold-lined set, quite delicate and unique.
    There are also times that I will include a cup and saucer on my dining table along with other items for a visual treat. The Sorella set is very lovely because it is beautifully formed, simple and yet very elegant. Thank you.

    Yes, my mother bought me my “fine” china (Franciscanware) as a wedding gift. The pattern (Hacienda) is no longer made. I tried replacing a saucer in 1986 and it cost $15. Service for eight, but I use it whenever I’m with the (new) love of my life. He visits from VA 3-4X a year for a month at a time. I saved it all these years, inc. the real silverware: for the RIGHT man.

    I have never married and so I never had a bridal registry. I used to haunt the china departments and dreamed about which ones I would select. I did start buying crystal stemware but after a few years of never using it except for myself I traded it all in. So…no I do not own any fine china but I still like to occasionally haunt the china departments.

    I have fine china that I received as wedding gifts, 13 yrs, ago. Have never used. Too fancy. Seem to use more modern, everyday dishes. This white pattern is more me, rather than Mother-In-Laws pattern that helped me to pick out other. With a 7 year old and a 11 year old, broken pieces and really need new dishes.

    I own several sets, including my grandmothers. I use it everytime I invite someone to dinner at my home. There is no point in owning things that you don’t use. If something gets broken, it’s distressing if it can’t be replaced…but since it brought joy in the using, that overcomes any feeling of sadness.

    I do own fine china. I use it as often as possible. Why save it for something important. I’m important, so I use it regularly. I deserve the finest and china has to be used regularly. I believe that it dries out and becomes fragile from non usage and therefore more easily breakable when you do use it. I don’t save anything for special occasions anymore. Life is too short not to fully savor each and every day as well as all the really fine things we possess. Too many people save things for that special day and then that special day never comes. So, either the things go out of style, the person outgrows the items or they pass on. The sad part is that no one truly values them like the person who originally fell in love with the item and purchased them. So, enjoy every day and use everything you have because you deserve the finest of everything that life has to offer.

    I have beautiful Noritake and Lenox bone china that I use anytime anyone comes for dinner, which is never as often as I’d like. I have a Shabby Chic home and never match anything so I incorporate different pieces from three patterns. My friends love the quirkiness of my settings and I’m a decent cook, so that always helps. I’m one of those people who shows love through food, I guess, it’s the Jewish Mother in me.

    I do have fine China by Lenox. I didn’t pick a pattern when I got married because I didn’t want to be rushed, so when another cousin was making her choice, I fell in love with a pattern she didn’t pick!

    Hello, and congratulations on the courage and confidence it took to start your own company.
    I had a beautiful home and as I love to cook and entertain, I owned many lovely dinner settings. When my daughter was diagnosed with ovarian cancer last year, I sold my house so that I could rent a place near her home. I also sold many of my possessions, including dinner services, as I knew I would have a much smaller place, and she has no health insurance. I still enjoy having company, and use my fine things on a regular basis. I would love to have a really fine dinner service, and would feel that I was reclaiming some of my past life.
    Thank you for considering me.

Her thought was, “Why save china for a special occassion? What is more special than eating dinner with my family?” I love that. If I owned china, I would use it everyday with my family.
