Remember the embellished gold chargers from A night in Morocco? I couldn’t wait to see how I could use them again
They were so pretty with simple everyday plates of yellow and aqua
They look pretty fabulous with cobalt and sea green too~
These “Mediterranean” salad plates and fish dishes hopped into my cart at Home Goods recently
I simply couldn’t resist~the plates aren’t quite round, they look handmade. They only had 2, but I was thrilled anyway. I like to buy small amounts of things to mix and match.
They were $2.99 each, sigh….don’t you love a good bargain?
The fish dishes were in a set of 4, the other 2 are blue and swam to the beach house. They will be great to use for sauces, small snack dishes, even fresh herbs or finishing salts.
I had some small ceramic fish that I brought in to swim in the centerpiece with aqua glass “bubbles”
a green condiment bowl
and a pitcher of cold, clear water
and a pair of tall iron candlesticks complete the centerpiece
I couldn’t resist adding a “fish” frame of 2 of my favorite guys
It’s also fun to use a frame on the table with the menu inside
I made this frame by painting a plain dark wood frame with a light dry brushing of silver
I glued some small rectangular tiles along the edges
and a mosaic of sea glass across the bottom and added some silver wave like curls with a small brush and silver paint
Across the top of the frame is a row of silver fish. These are from the jewelry crafts section at Hobby Lobby
So when I’m not using the frame for my fishermen, it looks great on the table displaying the menu!
Be sure to try the Lobster Tempura with Sweet Chili Aoli, it is a special treat
I will be posting the recipe for the Grilled Peach & Ricotta Salad soon!
