Spoon Rests as Salad Plates Tablescape

I just love using things in ways they were not intended to be I've used these cute flower spoon rests as appetizer plates.  

 These brown polychrome transfer ware plates by Wood and Sons make the perfect backdrop for the oversized spoon rests .  The pattern name is Hyde.

The napkins holders are square shaped, with a rusty bronze finish and decorated with leaves across the top.  

Galvenized buckets make cute napkin holders too

Last year, I posted a similar table using the same plates and spoon rests.  It was more of a Garden Themed setting, which you can see HERE.

I served my chicken salad from the spoon rest plates.

  5. Oh wow! I had spoon rests in my hand a couple of days ago. Almost bought them for my 4th of July table, but my daughter was with me and wrinkled her nose... so I left them. I think I just might go back to get them!

  6. What a great idea and a beautiful table as well.
