Tabletop Tuesday: Deco + Dishware

Tabletop Tuesday is a formal black and white setting with bread plate and coffee cup/saucer. The design represents simplistic Art Deco period geometric lines.

As you know, black and white is a timeless and versatile color combination. In the Art Deco period, black and white geometric patterns were quite common. Other details include gold, silver and exotic woods. The inspiration is endless.

I anchored this place setting with silver which serves as a neutral color. I then chose black glassware with black candles in crystal to add some drama.

Be bold. Be elegant. Eat well. Share your table.

Tabletop Tuesday: Blue Ground

Tabletop Tuesday sets your place at the table with a harmonious connection of earth and sky. Brown and sky blue are two colors that timeless balance each other. Perhaps the brown reminds us of the ground and the blue the sky. Somewhere in between we exist.

The foundation of linens is laid with navy blue material with a vintage scarf, filled with fun geometric shapes and the brown and blue color story, as the runner. I chose organic shapes of dishware for this setting. The bottom blue plate is a perfect circle but the middle brown plate and blue bowl are not exact circles which makes them visually and texturally interesting. I chose a navy, pinstripe napkin with a brass napkin ring. The setting is finished with brown vintage glassware and vintage rosewood and brass utensils from Thailand.

Bon appétit with flair and style!
