White dishes are the workhorses in my home… not only in my kitchen! White dishes are perfection in the kitchen but they are also wonderful element to use to decorate our homes with too! And when those dishes are used with a farmhouse bent… oh, my they work magic. My home is a farmhouse, but a modern American one. So I’m not as interested in authentic ironstone as I am great edged dishes and interesting shapes. If you have white dishes in your home, let’s get them out and and create a farmhouse vignette!
Today is FARMHOUSE FRIDAY! And the topic is white dishes! YEA!
You will find these creative bloggers and their “dishes” post at the bottom of this post.
CREATE A FARMHOUSE VIGNETTE WITH WHITE DISHES!
When I think of farmhouse I think of stacking dishes and odd sized bowls in a chippy tray or crate or tool caddy. In this old tool caddy I lined up some pretty white dishes with lots of interesting edges. I just can’t get away from those edges!
I used dishes of different sizes, stacking the larger one in the back and smaller in the front… and mixing up the sizes too! A group of white bowls were stacked right next to the smaller dishes!
To embellish the dishes and fill up some visual space I added some pretty embroidered linen napkins. Do you have napkins you love that are sitting in a drawer? Get them out and use them to work with your white dishes!
How about using small pitchers or creamers for flowers or some old silver as part of a farmhouse vignette? I love love love this look! I collect white pitchers… old, new, chipped, cheap and pricy. If they are white and interesting… they usually find their way into my home!
I often pair natural elements with white dishes. Something textural and organic contrasts beautifully with smooth white dishes. Willow balls are one of my go to organics. They are brambly, and rustic and just the right size! They look especially interesting if the dishes are a little more formal!
And don’t forget that flowers and white dishes play perfectly together! In this vignette pink peonies drip over the edge of the tool caddy sitting next to a stack of dishes!
I hope you will gather up your white dishes and create a little farmhouse magic in your home!!!
