The Romance of Red
I visited my dear friend Maria at her store Rooms U Love.
She had just changed over to her fall displays – I had my eye
on this tureen that she filled with lovely red flowers – I am
always drawn to red it seems – it is such a romantic color.
As I strolled through I saw a few Johnson Brother’s red
dishes – two Devonsire plates with three teacups, one rose
chintz teacup and two Windsor Ware Rose plates. They had
the same swirl to the edge of the plates – making them
compliment each other so well.
I knew when I arrived home the tablescape I envisioned required
a bare table. The star of the show had to be the dishes – I love
the darker wood color I put on the top of the table when I
I also had this delicate, green table runner that Maria had
given me – a perfect pairing for these lovely dishes.
The plate stand was a recent find from Goodwill – I love the
Rack and Pot tower in my kitchen. It is also perfect for
serving buffet style.
Red is such a romantic color – especially when it is on dishes and as a rose.
