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.
