March Kitchen Island

My Portmeirion dishes are kept handy on the kitchen island.
In the wire dish caddy.
I used two dark green placemats for a runner. I bought them several years ago on sale for $1.
Added a few dark green napkins to the tray.
I can grab a different flower with each place setting.
This one is my new favorite.



  1. Great idea. I wish I had an island with enough room to do something like that.

  2. Hi Rita...

    Ohhh...I have always loved this pretty dish pattern! All those beautiful flowers just look sooo springy...don't they! They sure do brighten your pretty kitchen island vignette! So very pretty, my friend! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us today!

    Warmest wishes,

  7. Those chinaware sure looks lovely!

  8. Those plates looks beautiful and stunning! It's such a lovely dish collection.

  9. I love your Portmeirion dishes! I'm very envious of them!!! It's what I originally wanted to register for when we got married 17 years ago, but hubby thought it was "very bright" so I got Noritake Conservatory, which is beautiful . . . however it's not made any longer . . . now he get's "the look" when he tries advises me on dishes because "he knows" he messed up! LOL!!! So, last week I bought my first piece! It's a square plate with a yellow rose - love it!!!

  10. Good Day Rita, I love your dishes and how handy to keep them out like that girl..Hugs and smiles Gloria

  11. What a lovely vignette! I adore the gorgeous green runner.

    Have a wonderful Fat Tuesday!
