Let There Be White!
My friend Kathleen at Cuisine Kathleen is hosting an All White event. She is great at creating beautiful tablescapes and challenged us to set an all white table. I am soooo very lacking in tablesetting skills. I did set the table many nights when I was growing up and my mom has some pretty linens and china as well, but as far as being creative...yikes I'm not good with it. Kathleen is inspiring though and I wanted to give it a try, so I pulled out all of the whites I could find. Let's say the result is a very ecclectic "casual" white table. I really wanted to prepare all white food as well, but life got in the way :-). I did come up with a few "white" edibles and I hope Kathleen will indulge me in a little tongue in cheekiness!!
I picked these plates up at TJ Maxx not that long ago, along with the glasses that seem to match somehow...same cute little blossoms. The soup bowls were a Goodwill find a couple of years ago and the other white bowls..we will call them my salad bowls were bought at Wal-Mart not long ago. The napkin rings date back to my college days and I believe I got them at Steinmart.
I got the cheese dome at Goodwill as well..I'm frugal :-)
So my food..umm..I got a little creative....
And bean soup?
A little bread wannabe on the side. Some very white (and blue) gorgonzola and some milk to wash it all down.
White chocolate for dessert...
Okay...Lame!!!!! I know!!!! :-) Lets move on to some whites I knew a little better.
A pesky but pretty weed
Rose...the name escapes me at the moment
And some good old fashioned daisies
