Iced Tea Or High Tea, Your Table Is Set…

with 6 comments

…Using Popular Whites!

 Today, I came across this gorgeous table, set for a birthday celebration over high tea.  Lovely, isn’t it?  I find it totally inspiring how nicely food can be displayed by using simple white dishes.  Go from casual to fancy in a matter of minutes, by adding a just a few colorful accents!

Keeping it simple never looked so good…

Above, the birthday girl used white dishes along with left over wallpaper as a table runnercolored napkins and a vase of flowers to add color… and wa-la!  Her table was ready to go in minutes!  Hey, it’s important to keep entertaining easy, so that hosts can enjoy their party too. 

As your styles change throughout the years, your white dishes will remain classic and easy to pair with anything!  If you’re considering white, take a look at this place setting idea I created using the new Set Your Table tool from

  1. White does have a clean and fresh appeal to it and can certainly be captured in the Wedding Photos to remind you of the accessories that added to your wedding day

  6. Juliet, welcome to the party! 😉

    I’ve enjoyed reading everyone’s comments (you know I always do!). Do any of you have china or plan on getting it? If so, I’d love to hear what patterns/colors you have or are considering.

    Have you tried the awesome new Set Your Table tool? If you’ve created a table using the tool, please do share!

    Thanks for reading, everyone! 🙂
