Whimsical Table Anyone?
I love to mix colors and ideas, and when my business partner and I found some super cute black & white barnyard dishes, we thought they presented a fresh, fun way to say spring, Easter, whatever fun idea you have for a table setting. I have used them as the focus of all kinds of color schemes, from mixing with red, to the Robin’s Egg blue seen here. This is actually my favorite. I love the mix of dressed up, blue beaded placemats against the black and white of the dishes. They also help contrast the glitz of the mercury glass pieces we found. (Mercury glass is another hot trend this spring, which I think will carry on through the holiday season.) We added other fun barnyard animals – from the silver glass pig to the yellow lamb and lavender bird. Use flowers and a fun mix of bunnies, chicks and other barnyard animals to create a fresh approach to spring 2009.
