I have been going to do this table for a couple of weeks, but just didn't get around. I saw some corn plates on a blog (forgot which one, of course). I really didn't know there were corn plates out there, but shouldn't be surprised. I hopped on eBay and found some little ones. I have added them to my corn collection. The corn harvest has just ended in my area...of course, I didn't have my camera with me when we passed by the big green and yellow farm machinery hard at work in the fields.
I started building the table with green square placemats after selecting the dishes.
The napkins are a solid yellow held with a green napkin ring. I thought the perfect flatware would be the vintage, circa early 1970's, yellow handled Oxford Hall Fashion Wear flatware I found at Saver's couple months ago. I just love the chunkiness of the handles!
The pale yellow dinner plate is topped with an apple green salad plate. At the top of the meager stack is a small corn plate. The corn plates are made by Terrace Ceramics, Marietta, Ohio (one of the plates still had the maker's sticker on it). I believe they were from the 1950's and 1960's.
I debated on whether to use yellow or green glassware...felt the yellow would fade into the table so pulled out green Artland bubble glass.
Other pieces of my collection that I have used on the table are someone's vintage ceramic covered dish casserole, salt/pepper set, candle holder and small pitcher. I have several other pieces, but the table just isn't big enough!
I will be joining Let's Dish/Cuisine Kathleen.
