We don’t know about you, but the delightful designs make us want to stay a little longer at the dinner table, enjoy good food with friends, smile a little more…

Here are just a few reasons you need the ED Ellen DeGeneres Crafted by Royal Doulton collection in your life.

1. It goes with everything

Ellen’s style is the perfect blend of modern and classic. The dinnerware features hand-drawn patterns in navy blue.

This kind of style is modern without being too ‘edgy’, which makes it effortlessly stylish enough to outlast trends for years.

And they’ll look beautiful no matter what you put on them! Whether you’re having a tapas-style get-together or a classic meat-and-three-veg dinner, the ED Ellen DeGeneres Crafted by Royal Doulton range is going to look divine.

Who doesn’t love a cosy cuppa? We love it even more in these feel-good mugs! Each one embodies the positive energy of Ellen.

Patterned with statements like ‘love’, ‘kindness’ and ‘joy’ – we just want to smile and wrap our hands around them.

3. It’s made from durable stoneware

Not just a pretty pattern, the ED Ellen DeGeneres Crafted by Royal Doulton collection is made from stoneware. Stoneware is super durable and ideal for everyday use by all the family.

Royal Doulton is also quite strict with their quality control and they’ve tested this stoneware for thermal shock (going from cold to hot without breakage) and impact.

We’re not saying the range is indestructible (and we certainly don’t recommend dropping your dinnerware) but you can rest assured that if you look after them, these plates and bowls will last.

With a more modern style at your table, you’ll take more pride in presenting your everyday meals. It feels good to invite friends and family around for a feed when you can welcome them with a beautiful dish served on a beautiful dish!

5. It’s Ellen-approved

Did we mention that Ellen DeGeneres helped design these? 😉 Ellen describes the range as ‘an extension of my lifestyle… inspired by who I am as a person… this is me. Every decision on every design, everything I’m putting out there.’
