uncertain whether it’s the ocd cleanliness monster living within me  -or- if i am a plain lover of simplicity . . . either way i am particularly fond of white tableware.  i tend to favor sleek design that highlights the main star: food!  enter beautiful map plates from what on earth:


eat off europe

i picture them aligned geographically -not to mess up the integrity of the big picture- with *local* hors d’oeuvres .  guests would take their olives off of italy and place them on lovely indented plates – helpful for forks not to slip far.



i adore the practicality and subtle design of the takito co., ltd. post party, tea or coffee would be served.  rather than stray far from our white whimsical wonderland – enter lee weilang:


tooth mug

not just creepy – but useful too<th>!  tea bag string cannot go far if you use it as floss 😉 or if you find this entire party theme to be unrealistic – it is approaching winter; you are cold and not inviting guests until spring bears new fruits and flowers.  wouldn’t a warm cup of soup <with crackers> be perfect?


$18.50 for two

available indivudally and in a duet from harriet carter.  finally, the last white dish is inspired by the great pyramids of nutrition : a lunchbox from yanko design
