When Kathleen of Cuisine Kathleen challenged us to set a table with ONLY white dishes plus one other color for linens and other elements, I knew I was in trouble. You see, the only white dishes I own are plain dinner plates from Pier 1. No salad plates, no bowls, no serving pieces, nada. I love color and pattern, and all my other dishes reflect that preference. But! I was determined to join Kathleen's Let's Dish party this week, so here goes.
I thought about colors that would work with white dishes for a fall table, and I finally settled on brown. Brown sounds dull and boring -- or should I say dull and dutiful? I pulled out some white placemats with a brown border and brown napkins and tried those with the white plates, adding my silver flatware and clear glasses. Not very exciting, huh? I did wish briefly
that I had some lovely brown stemware in my collection, but quickly
remembered that I do not want to find storage for any more glasses!
