Imagine a summer table set with these plates. Measuring eight inches round and made of ceramic, they’re perfectly sized for salads, desserts and sandwiches.
Celebrating sea life with crab, starfish and sea turtle motifs, the plates are made by Split P and are art of their Marina collection. I found them in the gift section at The Great Big Greenhouse. They’re $12.95 each.
The classic blue and white design would look great layered atop plain white dishes or colored stoneware. Paired with red checkered napkins, a traditional nautical palette would shine.
Topped with grilled corn and heirloom tomatoes or chocolate brownies with strawberries, they'd present quintessential, simple summer foods with style.
