The tablescape began on my dining table, sans tablecloth, with a white and blue scrolled runner placed in the center of the table. I opted not to use placemats, choosing to set fleur-de-lis plates in a soft shade of blue as a foundation.
The coordinating salad plate
is followed by a simple white saucer
and whimsical little grey plates with bunny motifs.
Crystal is placed at each setting to capture light.
It isn't traditional, but I really want to showcase the prettiness of the plates, so the flatware is placed to the right of the setting on top of sweet little crocheted-edge tea towels, and held together with pewter napkin holders.
Concrete grey bunnies who have been visiting us in the kitchen
become the centerpiece of the table,
along with low-height arrangements of soft-petalled flowers.
The delicate ruffled edges of the flowers almost look like cabbages, don't they?
