So, do you think that you have to have all matching dishes to create a
beautiful semi-formal table?
You don't! In fact, picking up a few pretty pieces here and there
when you see them, will actually get you a lot of versatility.
It also allows you to work in a few trends without investing a ton
of money into a whole set of dishes that you might end up
quickly getting tired of.
Accessories like chargers and linens also get you some mileage too.
(dang! I wish I would have straightened that knife)
Let me show you how quickly the same dishes are transformed into
a lovely, casual, breakfast table.
All that I changed out were the linens, chargers and crystal.
A pretty juice glass replaces formal crystal.
Here's the dish:
Plates: Debi Lilly Fluer. I found on the clearance shelf at the back of my local Safeway. $1.25 ea
Tea cups: Homer Laughlin Georgian Eggshell with Blue Band. Got these from Replacements.com
Crystal: Versailles (my grandmother)
Floral glasses: Rachel Ashwell from the Target Shabby Chic collection (about 8 years ago)
Silver Coffee Server: Goodwill (practically free)
So that is it for today.
Have a great rest of the week!
