Salute to Bullseye

I had these same dishes in a round shape last year, but I gave them away.  And regretted it.  Then, when our sweet grandson, Teddy adopted a show bunny named Bullseye who looked just like this, I really regretted it.  THEN when Bullseye went over the rainbow bridge, much to Teddy's heartbreak, I really, really regretted it.  So, when I found these at Homegoods this year in the square shape, I went to the checkout counter with tears in my eyes, buying every piece they had.

I placed a latex cabbage leaf under the plate to give it a bit of definition and used these World Market pieces of flatware.  Sure wish I had bought more of these.  Why did I think 6 placesettings were enough?

I started with this gray and white stripe remnant from a client's project. ( Relax....I paid her for it.)

I decided to make this a soup and salad lunch and I served asparagus soup in these cups.  It was delicious, and the green color looked great on the table, I must say.  (Yes, I'm one of those people who sometimes match my food to the color or theme of the table.)

These $1.00 glasses from Ikea were the perfect color, too.  I was going for a range of green, not a match.  

Thank you, Kroger, for the carnations which worked perfectly in this ribbed tin pot.  My second choice was the shamrocks that I have left from St. Patrick's Day.  Glad I didn't have to resort to them.

I rolled these grass green napkins into a tight roll so they wouldn't take much room on this small table.  I like the way they looked in these pewter napkin rings.

Dessert was served on these plain gray plates from Ikea.  You can see the cabbage leaf better in this pic.

I rarely set a table that is so matchy-matchy, but this accommodated the soup, salad, and roll just fine.  Hope the dish police don't arrest me.

Crowded, but ok, since I plated in the kitchen and we didn't have any serving dishes on the table.

So, here's to you, Bullseye.  I hope you are taking the blue ribbon in every heavenly show.
