Berries & Blossoms

Berries & Blossoms is the table theme this week.  MacKenzie-Childs introduced this new line for the Summer.   I fell in love with these plates immediately.   I knew they would pair perfect with the ceramic cake plate and dome handmade by my Mother many years ago.   She loved decorating with strawberries and used them in her kitchen decor.   She also hand painted many items with the berries which I'm so fortunate to have.

Berries & Blossoms place setting.  The MacKenzie-Childs Berries & Blossoms dinner plates are currently on back order on their website. I purchased mine at Nieman Marcus and they are currently in stock.












My Mother made this beautiful strawberry shortcake cake plate and dome years ago.  She made so many beautiful ceramic pieces back in the early 80's.  She was an excellent cake baker and she used this many times to protect those delicious cakes. 

I found these MacKenzie-Childs place cards on Pinterest.  I copied the picture and pasted it on to a word document in order to put in our names and print.  

I wrapped silver napkin rings with some black and white checked ribbon I had in my ribbon stash. 

I found the MacKenzie-Childs owl wine stopper in a consignment store a few months ago for $2.00.  Great find! 

My Mother also painted this cheese plate.  The date on is 1978.  


The cheese plate with dome and a decorative spoon she hand painted that hung in her kitchen. 



The layers.  I searched high and low locally for a red and white picnic themed tablecloth, but no luck.    I ended up at Joanne's and purchased the fabric to make one.  I used red charger plates purchased from AC Moore a couple years ago then the Berries & Blossoms dinner plates.  I added some lime green wine glasses from my Dollar Tree wine glass collection.

    1. Thank you Carole. I was looking around the house trying to decide on a centerpiece and the cake plate jumped out at me. It sits on a bakers rack in the dining area so I get to enjoy it year round. I think my late Mom would be so happy I'm using it even if it's not for cake storage. :)
