I’m at the table with Napoli by Pfaltzgraff, a hand-painted dinnerware collection that evokes the light and colors of the coast of Italy.
Salad plates are embellished with Napoli’s vine motif and hand-painted floral detail in a soft palette of orange, yellow, rose, and shades of blue and green for a bright and cheerful setting.
I brought a green pedestal from the kitchen to the table for an easy centerpiece with an assortment of citrus fruit~ oranges, lemons and limes. Grocery shopping is a lot more fun when you’re shopping for a centerpiece!
I picked some alstroemeria from the grocery store with a touch of orange, yellow and green on the petals, to tuck in among the fruit. Alstroemeria is long-lasting, comes in a variety of colors and affordable. You can pick up a bunch at most grocery stores for the same price as your Grande Skinny Cinnamon Dolce Latte :)
I nestled some to the individual blooms between the fruit and they stayed fresh for several hours without wilting while I was going back and forth and photographing this table. To keep your flowers fresh longer in your centerpiece, you can use floral water picks found on the floral aisle at the craft store.
A vine trails along the center of the generously sized Napoli 12-inch dinner plates. . .
30 ounce soup/cereal bowls. . .
and 18 ounce mugs.
A vibrant spring-hued cloth with a floral medallion pattern provides a foundation for the dinnerware and table.
A napkin holder is available in the Napoli pattern. . .
Or as a bright and cheery accent to hold mail or stationary.
Salt and pepper shakers have the hand painted vine detail. . .
And a petite Sauce Side Dish offers a fluted edge detail with a hand-painted bloom in the center.
I used an orange for a little vase of alstroemeria at the table! I scooped out just enough flesh of the orange to make a little “well” inside to hold the flowers. The orange vase can be used as a take-away favor at each place setting.
Pfaltzgraff Napoli is constructed of earthenware and microwave and dishwasher safe.
