Bringing the Garden to the Table with Mikasa Provence Garden Dinnerware


I’m bringing the garden to the table with Provence Garden Dinnerware by Mikasa.


Spring has in been in full bloom for several weeks in North Carolina! The pollen has started to wane and it’s perfect weather to dine outdoors again!


Provence Garden by Kim Parker for Mikasa, brings the vivid beauty of the garden to the table with a bright palette of florals.


I filled an 8-light metal candle centerpiece with flowers for a centerpiece for the table.


Four of the eight votive candle cups are filled with azalea blooms and sprigs of greenery.


Azalea blooms and greenery from shrubs fill out a grocery store bouquet of sunflowers, hydrangeas and stock for the glass hurricane vase for the centerpiece.


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.


A bold floral pattern adorns each piece of the dinnerware, blooming from the borders of the plates to the interiors of the bowls and mugs with vivid flowers.


A tablecloth freshly picked from Kohl’s, provides a colorful summer flower garden and foundation for the table and dinnerware, with profusion of blooms.


 Woven wicker placemats frame the plates and join napkin in summer palette of plaid as a colorful accent.

    Your table just made me smile, Mary, with the happy colors of flowers on the dishes, tablecloth and centerpiece. The votive holder is just beautiful with your pretty arrangement, which enhances the dishes. Don’t you just love dishes that have sprays of flowers inside the bowls and cups? You’re so lucky to be able to play with dishes, and we get to enjoy the results!

    Those are really beautiful dishes! You must have a REALLY nice grocery: I ahve never seen all those flowers at our groceries. Stock? Seriously? Your photos are just gorgeous too. What a beautiful table and setting!!!

      Hi Pinky, My Harris Teeter grocery store has Stock in small bunches for $4 several times a month. It does vary from individual grocery store in the chain, some carry better flowers than others :)

    Mary, I am a bit envious of your long growing season. The azaleas are gorgeous! Ours are just beginning to bud. This entire table~~linens, flowers and dishes~~is so festive and happy. Linda

    A happy cheerful table delightful as usual. Clever how you used the candle holder as a vase for your pretty flowers.

    Mary, what a stunning spring table! The tablecloth really caught my eye and I love mixing plaids and florals. I could sit at your table for hours! Pam @ Everyday Living

    Wow such a beautiful and colorful tablescape. That tablecloth is wonderful and of course the dishes too! You really did bring the garden to the table. The flowers are beautiful. I’ll have to check out the tablecloths at Kohls. They certainly offer good pricing on their table linens. I’d go for these dishes if I had room for them!

    Beautiful spring table Mary! Thank you for sharing at Home Sweet Home!
