It’s still snowing here in Chicagoland, and the weather reporters are calling for more snow today and again on Saturday. Under these circumstances, it’s only natural that my thoughts turn to white dishes.
Actually, I was intrigued by Yvonne’s post earlier this week at Stonegable where she enumerated ten reasons to collect white dishes. I loved her layers of different patterns of white, so I tried to showcase my own white palette.
Of course, I can’t wear an outfit or dress my table without some shine, so my white palette became an ice and snow theme with the addition of both silver and crystal. Ice and snow — a perfect pairing!
Update: I finally found the inspiration photo for this centerpiece and I want to give credit to the original artist — Karen at the Art of Doing Stuff. Thank you so much, Karen, for your wonderful idea to float a piece of glass (or in my case, a mirror) on tumblers!
I’m linking up today with the creative bloggers at The Scoop at Confessions of a Plate Addict, History and Home Link Party at We Call It Junkin’, Inspire Me Tuesday at A Stroll Thru Life, Centerpiece Wednesday at The Style Sisters, and Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch. Be sure to stop by and say, “Hello!”
Got my bags, got my reservations,
Spent each dime I could afford.
Like a child in wild anticipation,
I long to hear that, “All aboard!”
