To start--the dinner plates from our wedding china were the perfect chargers. And a recent addition, a set of Real Old Willow dinner plates, fit on top as if they were made for. A coffee cake called for the dessert plates from our wedding china. And for pre-brunch nibbles in the kitchen, the china pattern I picked out as an eight-year-old on vacation in Victoria BC (I would get a few pieces each year until I had a complete set at 15!).
For the menus, I painted backers in a blue and white stripe, and then finished by making seating card/gift tags as the final touch for each guest.
Here's the final dish:
More to come on flowers, food and the total look!
So... when you set the table, do you tend to stick to one pattern? Or do you mix and match?
