Kathleen @ Cuisine Kathleen Let's Dish Challenge for June!
Staying true to my Traditional Roots,
I met the challenge of "no china dishes".
Using the enamel splatterware from our camping days,
I kept the color palette of blue, white and buttery soft yellow.
As a centerpiece,
I filled my wooden gray box with two additional place settings.
This assures ease at mealtimes,
should our son and daughter~in~law join us
for those "spur of the moment" Summertime Cook~outs.
I added the enamel splatterware coffeepot and mugs
for early morning coffee on the deck
or evening strolls around the Gardens On Crooked Creektt.
Blue and white enamel plate rimmed with silver,
soft buttery yellow napkins in a splatter design fabric
gathered at the top with a soft buttery yellow beaded napkin ring
and the matching bowl for a variety of uses are the basis of our place setting.
Everyday Oneida flatware keeps clean~up to a minimum.
Glass tankards atop paper lace doilies
add ease of cool drinks to accompany our meals.
"Mr. Ed" and I scout for these former "A&W" Frosty Mugs
at local Antique and Flea Markets and our local Goodwill Stores.
Instead of being seated across from one another,
I changed our seating side~by~side
to allow us both a view of On Crooked Creektt's Gardens
through the patio doors.
I had hopes for the Shasta Daisies to be in bloom.
For now, these faux yellow flowers will have to suffice
in completing our centerpiece.
with a Traditional twist, for carefree dining On Crooked Creektt.
Until next time. . .
