Are you hosting Thanksgiving this year? Here’s your friendly annual reminder: this week is the perfect time to take inventory of your kitchen. Check your linens for stains. Assess your kitchen tools. Count your silverware and place settings and make sure you have enough for the big day. It’s an easy bet there are some spoons missing. (Why is it always spoons?)

We’ll be having Thanksgiving on our own this year, and our rental is all stocked up with dinnerware, but if I was ordering a platter or a bowl, something from Heath Ceramics’s seasonal collection would be at the top of my list.

Tell me, Friends. Do you have a favorite pattern of dishware or flatware that you add to? I use Yamazaki Old Denmark and Wilton Armetale Plough.
