Even though I admit that I am feeling a lot better after my recent bout with the flu, it really did take a lot out of me. It also made me realize, sadly, that I'm not a kid anymore. In my younger days, I used to be able to bounce back rather quickly. These days I'm finding that I can hardly bounce at all! Being down has also put me off my food, if you can imagine that. I've been getting by on big pots of soup in the crockpot, have been drinking lots of juice, and sitting around the house. Pretty dull, right?
So, today, instead of getting a recipe, you're going to get another table setting. I'm sure I'm not going to hear any complaints, I know how you all like table settings, and, truth be told, I like them too.
I kicked off the New Year with a very simple table featuring plates from the Old Curiosity Shop pattern. Someone had suggested that I do an entire table with these plates, and that's what I've done today.
I find these plates are best suited for the winter months, but they also work very well when serving tea at any time of the year.
Today's table is a truly winter one because it is near zero outside, and I decided to make my centerpiece one with a tea theme, because tea and juice have pretty much become my life lately. It's handy to have everything needed right in the center of the table.
I hope you enjoy these dishes as much as I do. What I love about this pattern, as I mentioned earlier in the year, is that each plate has a different image on it, so it's like owning lots of different sets of dishes. I also love transferware and love the color green, so the set was right up my alley.
These can be layered with any color dish in order to make it more or less colorful depending upon the season. I chose to stick with green and white here.
I've provided some close ups so that you can see the interesting detail on each plate. I love the hinges around the cups and the dinner plates. This is truly one of my favorite sets of dishes.
White Chargers – Pier One
Dinnerware – Amazon, eBay
Flatware – Oneida
