first dinner party

Ok, so, it’s not really my first dinner party, but it is definitely the first one in our new house! I figure that now that we have an actual dining room — one that is separate from all the other rooms — we should put it to use!
And what better way to celebrate a new dining room than with these beautiful new dishes? I picked out a few of my favorite patterns from Noritake , and mixed and matched them until I felt like I had it right! Would you believe this table setting came from three  separate  china patterns ? I couldn’t love them together any better if they’d come as a set.
One of the crazy things about china is that you’re supposed to pick this set when you get married, whether it’s at 22 or 35 or any age, and then it’s just supposed to be your set for the rest of your life. But when your tastes change or you want to mix it up, there’s nothing better than mixing and matching your china with new patterns! It’s amazing how a set of new accent plates or stemware can perk everything up.
So here’s what I did, if you want to recreate it:
All in all, an amazing way to celebrate our new house! And Noritake has offered you guys 10% off any purchase with the coupon code SUGARLAWS at checkout! xo
Corn on the Cob
6 cobs of corn, husked and cut in half
1 stick (1/2 cup butter)
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp lime juice
Freshly ground pepper
Preheat grill to medium heat. Place the corn cobs in a large bowl.
On the stove in a saucepan, melt the butter and dissolve the salt, sugar, lime juice and pepper. Turn off the heat and allow to cool for 30 seconds. Pour the butter mixture over the corn cobs, and when the mixture is cool enough to touch, toss them to coat. Wrap the corn cobs in foil and grill for 15 minutes. Serve.
