Polish Pottery Vignette

Because of spring, I have been putting pastel colored linens and items on the table but I started missing my blues. So, I decided to create a vignette on the breakfast table using my Polish pottery.
 
I started with this (using various dessert/salad plates)
 
but ended up with this.
 
I substituted the salad plates with smaller blue, orange and white with a little green divided plates. I also have divided dinner plates (not shown here). I like using them for everyday.  I saw them at first in a Polish pottery store in the market place in Seattle. They are convenient especially if you like to eat with dipping sauces like me.
 
 I bought the runner from the Roatan Island in the Caribbean. I like the deep blues in it and the bright yellow and orange combo.

 I found this ceramic Polish pottery sign on Ebay and placed it under a little cloche.
Under the big cloche is a small sauce pot, an egg PP s & p shakers and a potted faux rosemary name place holder.


 The blue and green figural pottery in front are s & p shakers too.

Now I have my favorite Polish pottery on the table too, to look at everytime I go to the kitchen.
 
 Thanks for stopping by. Your visits and comments are always appreciated. Thanks also to the hostesses.

What a lovely display gracing your table!! I see you are a cloche girl, too! I can never pass one by without buying it as they really add such charm to any setting! I also loved seeing the hutch that is painted black, my fav, and the other little one in the corner housing your dishes. So sweet! Thanks for sharing!
