So, this is part 3 of my mix and match tableware series… Would you believe me if I said I originally planned to write just one post? Then I realised I had way too many pictures, and decided to have two posts instead. Then two somehow turned into three… But this is the last one, I promise.
It’s not that I’ve run out of tableware, though. I just think I’ve said everything I want to say about the topic. At least for now.
But, since the whole idea of this series of posts is to present tableware as sort of a capsule collection, or collections, let’s call this one ‘a mini-capsule in blue‘. Or something.
Actually, I used to have a lot of tableware in blue. But I donated all of it to the recycling centre. As I’d had it for decades, it’s probably no wonder I was a bit tired of it. Or maybe I just needed something new.
However, I kept what you see here: a couple of sushi plates I found in a sale long ago and two small Taika (by Iittala) bowls (I also have matching coffee mugs) that I once bought on a whim even though they didn’t match anything else I had. I do that sort of thing a lot, it seems, picking up something I like on a whim whether it matches what I already have or not…
So, about this table setting… I simply found everything I had in blue and put it together… Isn’t that what we usually do, in real life? I just gave it the ‘Instagram treatment‘ (= made it look as if it wasn’t haphazard but carefully planned).
Do you have matching tableware,
or do you just throw together a mismatched set of plates and bowls?
PS: There’s a new Dilettante Artist post, too…
