I have a wedding to attend at the end of June. I bought the couple a couple of sets of the dishes they wanted from Crate and Barrel. The box came yesterday. I was sort of prepared for a bigger than usual box because Carole had dishes on her wedding list and a friend had purchased some for her. The box they came in was huge. This is what I had to contend with.
This is a 4 piece set; bowl, mug, small plate and large plate. It was very reasonably priced so I could afford to get them 2 settings.
I know Crate and Barrel doesn't want anything to happen to the dishes. They are breakable. Still, the sheer amount of packaging material almost defied description.
Here's what came in the box.
It just struck me that there was 3 times the amount of packaging there possibly needed to be, even though the items were fragile. One side of the box was dented so perhaps it was good that things had been wrapped in so much protection.
I put the box on the floor. Only Mija was interested and then only for a bit.
Beverage: Scottish Blend tea
