Do you have an especially cherished set of dishes? I have many that are special to me for various reasons, but one of the most meaningful is my mother’s green ivy dishes. The ivy wreaths on the classic white dishes with a green trim have always caught my eye.
Ivy is a greenery that I always have in abundance. I love using greenery as the basis for a tablescape, because it is a simple and quick way to bring a table to life. It can be added to your décor no matter the season.
On this table, the greenery is arranged in a simple terra cotta pot. This basic but impactful centerpiece allows the focus to still be on the dishes. White napkins and candles are perfect complements to the green placemats and glasses.
If you have an especially meaningful set of dishes, show them off! Let the dishes set the tone and then tie in coordinating linens for a cohesive theme. A simple centerpiece, with a greenery such as ivy, is pleasing to the eye and keeps the dishes as the star of your table.
