MY REVIEW

We have friends over for dinner probably a few times a month and I can’t wait until the next time when I can show off this beautiful new tabletop collection by Paula Deen.

Paula (can I call her that???) has a handful of new dinnerware collections out and they’re all gorgeous:

  1. Georgia’s Bounty
  2. Poppy Valley
  3. Amaryllis
  4. Spring Prelude
  5. Tatnall Street
  6. Southern Gathering
I’m very much an aqua blue kind of gal, so Whitaker was just the set of dinnerware I’ve been searching for.

The aqua color is perfect.  It’s a beautiful watery blue, soft and soothing, and I love it with my white and blue serving dishes.

Whitaker and all of Paula Deen’s beautiful dinnerware is crafted from durable stoneware. This collection comes in aqua and white, my two favorite colors and features that elegant and artsy sculpted bas-relief design. So beautiful.


The set comes with wonderfully deep and large bowls – perfect for an enormous helping of soup or my personal favorite, dessert… Because they’re deep and tall they’re very easy to hold. Perfect for ice cream and a movie on the couch.

The Whitaker collection is perfect for entertaining, family Sunday dinner, and every day use. Having a beautiful table to look forward to makes the kitchen slaving totally worth it…and I can’t wait to have my bookclub girls over for dinner next week! We’re going to be fancy this month…

For me my favorite set of dinnerware is a tie:) I love the aqua and pattern of the Whitaker:) AND I also love the Southern Gathering. There is something fresh and cozy about the Whitaker and there is something cozy and old school about the Southern Gathering. I love to throw dinner parties and host holidays. I would enjoy using the set for this. The aqua would lends to setting a gorgeous table in any season:)

Hello! I absolutely LOVE the Aqua Witaker set. Not only do I have a set of glasses that would go perfectly with this, but I would be able to use it in our new home with friends and family. There will be many a dinner party to come now that our baby girl has arrived!

Kind regards

I love the color of this set and the design of the Southern Gathering – but the color of this set is so pretty I think it wins :) My husband and I are hard at work finishing our new patio and I think these dishes would be beautiful to use at our first (long waited) patio dinner. They might even inspire me to do some Paula Dean style southern cookin’ too (we’re recent transplants to the south.)
