Collecting a set of white plates is a good threshold for anyone interested in expanding their dish collection, but where do you head after that?
Quite simply, you collect solid color dishes.
It’s very easy to add a patterned plate…
…or a patterned linen, such as a napkin…
…but you need the base of a solid.
One of the best colors to start a collection with is red.
Here I’ve used red in a Christmas tablescape.
Here is the same red dinner plate used in another Christmas tablescape but with an entirely different feel.
Here the same red dinner plates are used in a patriotic table. This table could be used for Memorial Day or the Fourth of July. Red plates can also be used for a Valentine tablescape.
I always look for plates with an interesting edge such as the gold ones above.
