So, the really big dinner plates are kind of simple ... but ... the "pop" comes later!
Don't you just love the primary colors? Looks like a Fiesta!
The homespun napkins repeat the colors of the bamboo place mats and someplace, I have a big tablecloth that matches those napkins!
Yes, I have all kinds of things stored and en route to the antique mall booth, so if you are ever at the St. Mary's Antique Mall, in St. Mary, Missouri ... just south of St. Genevieve ... look for Booth #272 ... Rolling Red Truck Treasures. You will probably find something that you need ... that I don't need anymore!
These fabulous salad plates are where the color really pops. This is a "southwest" pattern .. .but it also reminds me of the 1950s ... Either way, I love it!
I can see it set with cobalt blue glassware ... or red glassware ... or big wine glasses with yellow stems ... and yes, I have all those!
The soup bowls are also extra large ... and I need them for this menu ... We're having ...
Manhattan Clam Chowder
Sweet Potato Focaccia
with Spaghetti and
Homemade Red Sauce
Served with a Side Salad of
Greens with Braised Brussels Sprouts, &White Asparagus in a warm
Doesn't that sound incredible ... and Oh, did you notice that this dinnerware works for an Italian theme, too???
a dessert plate, but it works so well for a side salad that you want your guests to eat along with their entree.
It is deep enough to keep the salad dressing in the plate and fits nicely into the overall place setting.
Following this picture is one of the flatware. This is Cambridge and I've had it for several years. I just love the shape of the handles and the multiple colors.
Papa Joe tried to teach Miss Phoebe her primary colors using this flatware, but she was in her "blu-u-u-u-" stage and she didn't care about any of the other colors!
I'll be posting with ...
