Here are three sets of default plate replacements in some familiar patterns: Corelle's Butterfly Gold and Royal Albert's Old Country Roses and Moonlight Rose. Remember that you can only use ONE set in your game at a time!

Also see my matching recolor of Boblishman's dish rack, found here:

Ambular's Artifacts - Custom Recolors

And my other replacement plates:

Corelle Crazy Daisy
Corelle Farm Fresh

Thanks to Morague, who created the original default dinnerware set.

I LOVE Corelle. With three boys who are very rough on everything Corelle is the best. LOL. I own the green hearts set myself. Thanks for this. My sims will love it.

I still have my mother's set of Butterfly Gold and use it every day--she bought the set when it was first introduced, many many moons ago. XD Hope your Sims enjoy it!

I've never used a plate replacement before, let alone default replacements, but I think I'll make an exception for at least two of those lovely plates (the old country roses and moonlight rose)

I started my "Hopechest" with the Butterfly Gold set, waaayyy back in the day! (My favorite color is yellow, & my real name is the greek word for "Butterfly").

After 30 years, I still have (& still use) a few of those first plates, along with some bowls.

Thanks for sharing my Sims can have them too!

Not having a sig IS my sig. Oh wait, this is a sig, isn't it? Nevermind...

I have corelle, one of the newer patterns I can't remember the name right now (I guess the set is about 10 years old now were does the time go?) but my mom has the Butterfly Gold set and my grandmother had the "Crazy Daisy" set--you know the really old one that had green flowers? After grandma died mom took the dishes down to Arizonia with her. She and dad go down there for the winter. They can't take this cold weather in Nebraska anymore. It got down to -16 about 3 days ago.

Oooo Thanks the Moonlight Rose matches another set I have on a few custom foods, It will be nice for them to all blend when my sims eat Maxis foods.

I too am one who grew up with my Gramma's set of Butterfly Gold, we still use it to this day. She now has a newer set as well: Country Cottage. Thanks so much for making a piece of many of our childhoods, immortal.

I never would've thought to download a default dish replacement until I saw your Butterfly Gold set. I'm all nostalgic for meals at Grandma's house now. Thanks so much for these lovely recolors!

Hi, I think I requested the Butterfly Gold from you a long time ago. Thank you! I loved this set because my Mother owned this set and it was passed down to me. It's the only set I own from my mother. I was wondering if it were possible for you to do this set again for Sims 3. I would be most grateful and will send you a gift in the postal mail.
