I bet I know what’s on your mind right now. Is it your Thanksgiving table? Me too! I have been thinking about Thanksgiving and Christmas decorating for a while now. I knew that I wanted to go in a different direction this year. So with that in mind I have been perusing the dried flowers. It’s something I should have thought about much earlier in blogging. Dried flowers stay usable for a long time if you are gentle with them. With that in mind I am trying to decide which way to go with dinner plates.
Tell me what you think, if you will. I have my traditional plates that have been used in the past and I discovered these smaller plates just a few months ago. I thought the color was so pretty. They do look springlike but that doesn’t deter me. They just look so pretty with the flowers, don’t you think?! Let’s take a look.
They are vintage Sheffield Japan Sweet Violets Luncheon plates. Violet Flowers with gold trim fine china plates. They are just a little smaller than a regular dinner plate. Very Springy but I think they pair so well with the Globe Amaranth flowers.
Then there is the Wedgwood that feels very appropriate for Thanksgiving.
Maybe I will have some of both on the table. When you see the plates next to each other like that they don’t match or seem to “go” with one another. The secret is in the blend. Just like cooking, you need other flavors and spices to make it harmonize.
Various shades of purple, amethyst, lavender and rose are going to be part of this Thanksgiving, I think. The purples and its relatives just work so well.
