Don't you just love technology?! Way back when I was a bride-to-be (a year and a half ago), you actually had to go into the store to pick your china pattern, flatware and stemware. Now, thanks to Bloomingdale's and this nifty little tool, those days are in the past.
You can play with chargers and wine glasses to your heart's content without your husband-to-be counting the minutes that go by before you find the PERFECT arrangment for your marital table.
Even those of us who have already sealed our place setting fate can play around and dream of what could have been. *sigh*
Of course, I would still recommend visiting a brick and mortar store. You have to see and feel the merchandise - that's all part of the fun! And while there isn't a Bloomingdale's anywhere near me, I am happy to say the pattern I selected, (via Bed Bath & Beyond) Vintage Jewel by Lenox, is featured on the Set Your Table Top tool. I'm still (slowly) collecting place settings and I'm still in love with this gorgeous pattern.
