Yes, I don't like the dish pattern to overpower the appearance of the food.

I can't imagine a mixed vegetable stir fry on a plate covered in a brilliant multi-colour pattern.

Lilac, the light weight is very helpful for me too.  White backgrounds seem to make food more appetizing, along with the simple patterns.  I look at the patterns a little like deciding, today I will wear the blue shirt, or the grey shirt.  Same for dishes.

I like the lightweight of the Corelle because of arthritis in my fingers.

I remember the Golden Butterfly colour, but we did own the green flower border, as well as the blue.

We prefer foods served on the white backgrounds as opposed to dark.

Lilac, thank you for the link.  Some of those are very tempting.  I usually like simple dishes, with a somewhat simple patterned border.  My "set" is very mismatched, but I do have a full 4 place setting for the vintage Golden Butterfly and the Provincial Blue except for coffee cups, and all of the cups have matching saucers.

BB, I used to have a set like that!  Back about 30 years ago.  I have no idea what happened to them, they are very nice. Good solid, midwest dinner ware!

Daniel - these are the dishes we were talking about the other day at coffee. Back in the day practically every little ol' granny in the Midwest had a set. Hull Pottery and McCoy made them, but there were several other brands a well.

Yes, the dinner plates are large, but I also got the 9" square lunch plates for us as well as the round 6" plates, and cereal bowls.

I found a site to buy open stock so didn't get any cups, as we have our favourite mugs to use, & plenty of them.

I have a beautiful set of tea cups to use for company, so the last thing we needed was more cups.

I'm not at all familiar with the newer Corelle dishes.  The iris pattern is really pretty.  And they have the added bonus that irises are one of my favorite flowers.  My mother's garden always had irises, so they bring back lots of childhood memories of summer days in our backyard.

Lilac, those are nice. I have a modern set too, square with bamboo leaves.  My only negatives, are the dinner plates are too big for us, and I like the 70s coffee cups better.  The Corelle sets are thin, so they dont take up much room, and we can switch thd ones we use from time to time for variety. 

I also like the 70s and 80s Pyrex casserole dishes and glassware much better than the new stuff.  Easier to use and cleans easier, and not as breakable.

I had that same Corelle set, & now have the Shadow Iris in the square shape.
