I have some flower therapy for the table, ideal for spring or summer, but especially welcome on a cold winter day, Mikasa Meadow Violets dinnerware!
Meadow Violets, by Kim Parker for Mikasa, brings the vivid beauty of the garden indoors, with a bright palette of painted florals to the table.
An embossed foliage design borders one side of the plates, providing some texture to the clean, white surface of the porcelain dinnerware.
Kim Parker, artist and entrepreneur, is the founder and creative director of her namesake lifestyle brand, and brings her signature style of modern floral art and design to the table in collaboration with Lifestyle Brands.
I always welcome some flower therapy at the table, especially if it’s cold and gray outside!
The grocery store was a flower garden this past week in anticipation of Valentine’s Day. I picked some alstroemeria, hydrangea, daisies and carnations, along with some Granny Smith apples for punch of green for a centerpiece for the table, to go with the blues, pinks, and purples in the dinnerware.
I arranged the flowers in wet floral foam, grouping them by color or colorblocking, for a modern and easy arrangement.
A tablecloth freshly picked from Kohl’s, provides a colorful flower garden and foundation for the table and dinnerware, with profusion of blooms, complete with dragonflies and birds. I was under the influence of Kim Parker’s exuberant floral design when I set this table, so I apologize if all the flowers make your eyes cross :)
Dragonfly napkins rings in turquoise and green marry a pair of napkins, a floral with a solid turquoise, to match the dragonfly design in the tablecloth.
I’m a fan of alstroemeria! It packs a flower therapy punch for $4, is long-lasting, and available year round in a variety of colors.
And Mikasa Gourmet Basics Blossom Flatware adds a modern floral vine motif to the table.
Kim Parker® Meadow Violets pattern for Gourmet Basics by Mikasa is crafted of porcelain, microwave and dishwasher safe.
