Pastel blooms provide a soft, soothing setting for springtime tables. Consider the primary triad of red, yellow and blue, but as in this example, presented with sunny yellow, pink and blue-violet. This is my mother and father’s wedding china, manufactured by Syracuse China, circa 1950 and it is well suited for pastel floral designs. Having something beautiful that reminds you of loved ones becomes a reason to have a party! Consider hosting a breakfast/brunch or lunch as a nice time to entertain. Why not use a bowl or plate from your cupboard as inspiration for an event?
