Fine China: Plates That’ll Make Even Meatloaf Look Pretty

Usually a clean plate at the end of a meal is a sure sign that your cooking skills are up to par, but if you're serving dinner on designer Caroline Silfverling's new plate collection, "The Ladies" ($185), don't be too quick to appoint yourself chef of the year—chances are, your guests are just trying to sneak a peak at what's hiding underneath the tofurkey. This set of four bone china plates feature old-school pin-ups sitting pretty on piles of petals (yes, we're into alliteration). Definitely an ideal gift for someone who loves playing hostess.
