At the Table with Blooming Dishes: Mikasa Sunset Valley
I’m at the table with blooming dishes and the vibrant florals of Sunset Valley Dinnerware by Mikasa.
Mikasa Sunset Valley provides a modern interpretation of a tradition floral design in a vibrant palette of yellow, lavender, coral and rose.
Scattered flowers are strewn along the borders of Sunset Valley’s plates and bowls like petal confetti in a playful watercolor effect.
I’m always happy to have flowers at the table and our weather has been warm enough to dine on the porch again! I used a floral tablecloth and a blooming centerpiece for lots of flower power at this table. I apologize in advance if all the flowers makes your eyes cross :)
By happenstance, I discovered I had a pair of gardening gloves that I purchased last year and decided were too pretty to use, that matched the dishes so I added them to the table.
For a centerpiece, I planted an urn with flowers from the garden center at Lowe’s~ kalanchoe, petunia, and a mixed pot of bacopa and calibrachoa, for some yellow, purple, white and coral, along with some ivy to soften and trail over the sides.
For some rose-colored blooms, I picked up some alstroemeria at the grocery store to tuck in the arrangement in floral water picks.
I’m a fan of alstroemeria, since it’s affordable ($4 a bunch), long-lasting, and available year round in a variety of colors.
Floral water picks can be found on the floral aisle of the craft store, in a package of 10 -12 for around $3.00.
They’re convenient for adding a pop of color to an arrangement, living basket,napkin, or to tuck in a mug at the table.
