How to Mix and Match the perfect tablescape

 

You know what bothers me? White plates. Plain, white matching plates. A full set. With no joy or fun or colour. You know what I love? Pretty, bright, happy, floral tableware. The more pattrens and colour the better! There’s a certain art to it though. For a start, t helps if there is some unifying feature. Most of our plates are all the same size and substraight, meaning they work well alongside each other and fit and stack well togther. There are also certan colurs that really complement each other. Read on to see some of our favourite combinations!

Mix and match within a collection

Our collections each tend to have a small amount of mix and match elements within them any way. The dinner plates usually will have two different “matching” side plates from the same collection, which have the same design elements but used in a different way. For example, our vintage indigo dinnerplate has a blue scalloped border with a small floral motif, and matching side plates which consist of a blue gingham design and a polka dot and floral design. I’ve always loved this playful appraoch to tableware and the pretty tablescape is creates.

And if youre feeling even extra playful, how about mixing up the collections?

Mix and match different collections

 

The nature of having a tableware bsuiness means that our cupboards are full of a bright array of all sorts of different plates, bowls and mugs. We’re used to seeing all these different designs sat alongside each other and how fun the collections look together.

So here is a little glimpse of how we mix and match our tableware!

 

Josie’s Blush and Vintage Indigo

These two collections were actually designed to complement each other. They have similar design elemnts – the monochrome floral, gingham and polka dot. One collectin in blue and one colletion in pink. If you have bought into the Vinateg Indigo collectionn why not try adding a touch of Josie’s Blush to freshen it up and give it a new lease of life?

Blooming Margaret and Josies Blush

One pink collection, one black with bright florals – can they mix and match? Absolutly! These two collections are actually made up form the same floral design, and so perfectly complement each other! Try mixing the mugs up for a cute selection, or go for a pink and black tableware collection!
