I always admire the talented bloggers who manage to design, set, photograph, and post beautiful table settings every week. Inasmuch as I'd like to do the same, I find that I get quite attached to some of the settings that I create, and just don't want to take them down to make way for something new. Such was the case with last week's tablescape, Destination: Dinner. At the same time that I was admiring it, a friend in the process of downsizing decided to gift me with this unique Griffin (I call him “Merv”) from the Blanc de Chine collection by Fitz and Floyd produced in the 1980s. She told me that it was a gravy boat, but I saw it as a rather showy addition to my “worldly” table. So here's a tabletop tidbit for today. I've been envisioning it full of pansies, homemade pastel butter mints, overflowing with variegated ivy, or offering up spicy seasoned pecans. Leave a comment and tell me what you'd use it for, and you may just see your idea in a future blog post!
