DSC_6034-001

at the table with eggs, blooms

Easter Blues: Hydrangeas, Bunnies & Mikasa Jet Set Blue

DSC_4977-001

I’m celebrating Easter with Blues. . .

Hydrangeas, Bunnies, and

Mikasa Jet Set Blue Dinnerware!

DSC_4964-001

  Mikasa Jet Set Blue is versatile for casual or formal dining,

 accented with striated lines that add a subtle textural detail,

and rimmed with a band in three shades of blue.

DSC_4959-001

When I first saw this dinnerware with its clean lines,

 I envisioned setting sail with a nautical table

with lanterns, buoys, and accents of red.

DSC_4925-001

But I moored my plans for a nautical table,

waiting for warmer waters

when boating season is under way :)

DSC_4884-001

While this dinnerware is not what you would expect to find

on your Easter table, I had some hydrangea

inspiration from a pair of bunnies. . .

DSC_4912-001

. . . that hopped to the table, begging to be paired with a

hydrangea tablecloth, egg cups and bunny napkin rings.

DSC_4906-001

 Appropriate for an Easter Blues table

with Easter on its way!

DSC_4857-001

   A Ryland wine glass offers an unexpected and unique

square shape, crafted from European lead-free crystal. . .

DSC_4863-001

. . .and offering a little porch railing reflection :)

DSC_4855-001

 And bunnies are coupled with a duo of napkins, a solid

blue, paired with a print that matches the tablecloth.

DSC_4928-001

 Eggs cups are filled with egg shells as vases to hold a

bloom of hydrangea at each place setting~ an easy &

 fun detail for a spring or Easter table, taking care to crack

your eggs and saving your shells.

DSC_4869-001

DSC_4940-001

 And a basket is filled with hydrangeas,

hyacinth bulbs, ivy, moss and eggs

for an Easter basket centerpiece for the table.

In the Potting Shed: Beatrix Potter’s Gardening Life

DSC_4495-001

I’m joining The Novel Bakers

for Beatrix Potter (and Bunny!) Week.

DSC_4554-001

Beatrix Potter’s Gardening Life: The Plants and Places That Inspired the Classic Children’s Tales

by Marta McDowell

 Beatrix Potter’s Gardening Life is the first book to explore the origins of Beatrix Potter’s love of gardening and plants and show how this passion came to be reflected in her work. The book begins with a gardener’s biography, highlighting the key moments and places throughout her life that helped define her, including her home Hill Top Farm in England’s Lake District. Next, the reader follows Beatrix Potter through a year in her garden, with a season-by-season overview of what is blooming that truly brings her gardens alive. The book culminates in a traveler’s guide, with information on how and where to visit Potter’s gardens today.

IMG_2328

Richly illustrated and filled with quotations from her books, letters, and journals, it is essential reading for all who know and cherish Beatrix Potter’s classic tales.

DSC_4551-001

I’ve been immersed in the charmed world

of Beatrix Potter, filled with flowers and gardens

and of course, Peter Rabbit!

IMG_2342

I’m ready to break in a new pair of

gardening gloves & dig in the dirt!

DSC_3234-001

So I took a day off from baking

to play in the Potting Shed. . .

DSC_3150-001

It seemed fitting since my Potting Shed is as full

as Mr. McGregor’s fictional one with lots of places

for a bunny to hide . . .

DSC_5155

” . . .a broom for sweeping, a spade for heavy digging, a trowel for transplanting. He has different sizes of flower pots: small ‘thimbles’ for starting seeds and ‘long toms’ for growing deep rooted seedlings.”

IMG_2359-001

DSC_5105-001

DSC_3225-001

I filled a bunny planter for some spring blooms and to enjoy indoors until we’re past our freeze/frost date later this month, and can plant outdoors.

DSC_4409-001

Purple Hyacinths and Muscari are blooming,

planted alongside violas, a bird nest,

and a few colored eggs.

DSC_4413-001

 “Beatrix Potter was a late bloomer, gardening-wise. By the time she saw the first growing season progress through her garden at Hill Top she would be forty years old. In spite of a somewhat late start, the seeds of Potter’s gardening interests were planted early on.”

IMG_2331(Beatrix Potter at a garden gate about 1871)

Part one in Beatrix Potter’s Gardening Life is her life as a gardener with chapters titled Germination, Offshoots, Flowering, Roots, Ripening, and Setting Seed.

DSC_4526-002

Part two is a year in Beatrix Potter’s Gardens, divided by seasons, and part three is visiting Beatrix Potter’s Gardens.

Singing the Blues & Yellows with Pfaltzgraff Madeline

DSC_3833-001

I’m singing the blues and the yellows,

at the table with

 Pfaltzgraff Madeline Dinnerware!

DSC_3876-001

Madeline Dinnerware by Pfaltzgraff adds a bright and cheery note to the table with its palette of vivid blues & yellows.

A diamond pattern created from a crisscrossing border lends a hand painted feeling and whimsy to the stoneware.

DSC_3846-001

For a centerpiece, I filled an urn with

hydrangeas, alstroemeria, button mums

 and lemons, set on a natural seagrass tray.

DSC_3841-001

I added lemons to the floral using bamboo skewers

for an additional pop of yellow and

since I like a serving of fruit with my flowers :)

DSC_3813-001

DSC_3862-001

Chargers are layered for texture and color~ a distressed scrolled white set provides a transition from the plates to textured woven set, to marry the tray.

DSC_3853-001

A tablecloth with lemons and a patterned floral stripe

in blue, provides a cheery foundation for the table.

DSC_3898-001

Forte flatware by International Silver

offers a teardrop shape and a gently ridged edge

for definition and a simple, clean design.

Mikasa Antique White, Bunnies, Tulips & Nests

DSC_3005-001

I’m ready to welcome spring, so I gathered some

bunnies, tulips & nests for the table with

Mikasa Antique White Dinnerware.

DSC_2978-001

Fine, chip-resistant porcelain dinnerware,

Antique White by Mikasa

is a versatile and an ideal blank canvas

for casual or formal dining!

DSC_2970-001

A 62 ounce pitcher is serving as a vase for the table,

along with pink tulips for a little spring color.

DSC_2988-001

Scalloped rimmed edges and graceful flowing lines

add interest to this classic white pattern. . .

DSC_2975-001

And a footed cake plate elevates

a nest and sugar and creamer.

DSC_3003-001

A quilted coverlet, multitasking as a tablecloth,

was the color inspiration for the table. . .

DSC_2981-001

With ticking stripes and a patchwork of blooming flowers

in a color palette of soft blues, pinks, and warm brown.

DSC_2972-001

Woven scallop-edged chargers add texture and

additional warm accents of brown,

and tea cups and saucers were filled with brown

excelsior as nests, for blue candy eggs.

DSC_3020-001

White floral relief napkin rings couple

a pink floral napkin with picot edge

 brown & white check.

Instead of soup, a tureen is hiding colored eggs,

St. Patrick’s Picnic on the Porch

St. Patrick's Picnic on the Porch

I’m having at St. Patrick’s Picnic on the Porch

for Cuisine Kathleen’s

6th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Blog Crawl!

DSC_3286-002

My basket is packed for a picnic

and ready for the parade of green . . .

DSC_3312-001

 I picked some Bells of Ireland from the grocery store,

a symbol of good luck, along with some daisies

and mums for a vase.

DSC_3291-001

The Bells of Ireland worked their magic

since I’m the lucky recipient of

 the traveling Irish table topper!

DSC_3292-001

 This lovely vintage topper, complete with shamrocks and Celtic knots, originated from Marigene at In the Middle of Nowhere. She passed it along to Cuisine Kathleen, with the stipulation that it would be passed on again for another blogger’s table. Rett at The Gazebo House, received it last year and the luck of the Irish was with me when she sent it to me this year!

Who knows where it will end up next :)

DSC_3324-001

DSC_3337-001

No St. Paddy’s Picnic is complete

without Lucky Pasta. . .

DSC_3268-001

I used the same combination of ingredients for a pasta salad as in our favorite orzo salad.

Chicken, chopped baby spinach, pine nuts, black olives, capers, sundried tomatoes and shredded Parmesan cheese~ mix together and add Newman’s Own Parmesan & Roasted Garlic Dressing.

DSC_3302-001

This salad is good with any shape pasta,

served warm or cold for a picnic.

DSC_3352-001

A little meat & cheese for snacking with some

Kerrygold Irish Cheese and Irish Stout Mustard. . .

DSC_3359-001

And Grace’s Irish Shortbread for a sweet ending. . .

DSC_3365-001

I kept seeing something circling the table

out of the corner of my eye,

thinking it was only Chloe

interested in the pasta salad. . .

DSC_3296-001

DSC_3297-001

Imagine my surprise when I uploaded my photos,

and noticed my lens had captured

this little leprechaun. . .

At the Table: Mikasa Arabella

DSC_2080-001

 I’m at the table with Arabella,

a casual dinnerware pattern

by Mikasa.

DSC_2077-001

 Stylized navy tulips and vines mix and rim

the stoneware with a matte glaze border.

DSC_2067

It should come as no great surprise by now that I lean toward a ‘more is more’  philosophy :)

My table this week is simple and ‘less is more’ allowing the dinnerware to be the guest of honor and provide the pattern.

DSC_2129-001

I’m a fan of using natural or organic materials when possible at the table.  Since it’s soup season, I found myself on the dried bean aisle at the grocery and picked some up to add to a vase with a candle for an easy 5 minute centerpiece.

DSC_2145-002

The beans provide some color and texture

as well as a secure base for the candle.

DSC_2130-002

 Textured placemats at the table instead of a tablecloth allow the wood grain to show and provide some contrast and warm color to complement the dinnerware.

DSC_2049-001

Arabella has been favorite stoneware dinnerware pattern since its introduction in 1986, and is oven, freezer and microwave safe.

DSC_2140-001

Sherbet dishes are a fun way to present a variety

of desserts~ ice cream, cobblers, or in this case lentils :)

DSC_2126-001

servings of fruit, cereal, yogurt or soups.
