Today I’m so excited to share some fun table setting ideas using one pattern AND we are giving you a chance to win one of these beautiful sets of dishes from Mikasa!
This weekend I realized the full extent of my blogging-itis when my husband came home and saw this…
and said, “I’m assuming this isn’t set up for us.” He was right but it got me thinking about how often I set up pretty table settings, do my photo shoot and forget to enjoy them with the family! It was a reminder that our pretty dishes should be used and used frequently!
When we moved, I made a decision to start fresh with much of my home decor! I was ready for a change, and that change included my dishes. I LOVE color and have always gravitated towards fun and interesting place settings BUT then I would find that they didn’t always match with the table decor I wanted to use OR, my taste would change and I felt “stuck” with what I had.
I love the texture of the subtle pattern around the edge of the Sutton White design. It adds depth and deminsion when paired with other pieces. When setting a causal table I love to add something fun and unexpected like these orange rattan place mats!
I also like to use pieces from my collections in unusual ways like placing these small succulents in the Daylight rice bowls for a fun centerpiece.
Even if it’s a “family dinner” it can be fun to use your nice flatware and stemware. Serve wine for the adults and a fun sparkling beverage for the kids!
I love that my Cocoa Blossom flatware and Alexandra stemware can be both casual or sophisticated depending on what you pair with them! In fact, it’s easy to transition my new Mikasa dishes, flatware and stemware (which can be purchased at Macys!) right into the dining room…
Placed on gold chargers, topped with a dainty set of patterned salad plates all resting on blue and white dishtowels, my Mikasa place settings take on a more formal air!
Seeing this makes me so excited to host my first dinner party in my new house…I wish each of you could join me!
But, I CAN give you a chance to own a set of either Sutton White or Daylight dishes yourself….
We are giving THREE people a complete setting for four of one of these lovely patterns!
And, we’re giving you four chances to win, here’s all you have to do to enter…
