Mix & Match: Garden Greeting

Beaded dinnerware accented with pops of color echoes a resplendent spring garden greeting.


With beautiful details, such as the scalloped edge and beaded rim, it’s no surprise this handcrafted plate was created by an Italian fashion designer. It provides plenty of interest on its own, yet also serves as a versatile companion to other patterns. Bella Bianca Beaded Dinner Plate, $45; Arte Italica.



Regal esprit takes wing with this gold-rimmed salad plate. Pair it with an aqua linen and scalloped charger for a polished look. Continue the color-rich display with a raspberry-hued goblet and a radiant tablecloth that match the season’s brilliant blooms.

Revel in spring’s softer side with a decidedly feminine setting. The inspiration plate’s matching salad and flatware create a cohesive flow, while drinkware adorned with bursts of pastel give a nod to Monet’s Water Lilies. A lavender napkin cinched with a cloth ring completes the casual look.
