Q: I will be hosting my first holiday dinner this year, and I'm in desperate need for nice dinnerware. Being on a tight budget (as in, poor grad student budget) means I dont have a lot to shell out for all the serving and dinnerware (and yes, I need both dinnerware and serving dishes). So far, I have only found Targets "First Frost" Porcelain sets and platter to be affordable (and attractive/ festive). Any chance you can compile more options that are within with $150 range? I'd really appreciate it!
