Something Fishy

PATRIOTIC CHALLENGE

Let's Dish 

With Cuisine Kathleen




Something fishy here!  

This table isn't exactly patriotic.




But it definitely celebrates  

Red ~ White ~ Blue





Swim on up and 

hook yourself a fish.




A Vietri fish 

in their Fish-Fish Pattern.




The collection was inspired by the 

work of ceramist, Giovanni De Simone.




These new designs are an update from 

the original collection that was introduced in 1990.





The fish plates look as if they are swimming when 

stacked atop the vibrant Vietri Marina Blu dinner plates.  

The rattan chargers, with their beaded 

edges, remind me of a sandy beach.  

Both echo the bright colors of this happy pottery.




The cabana stripes and the chevron 

design are a perfect fit for the beach theme.




As is the 

sea blue glassware.




Just for fun, 

more fish swim across the table.




With the occasional 

piece of branch coral.


These colorful hand painted dishes 

come in several sizes and shapes.  

Though I took these photos at a local shop, 

the hand painted pieces of Fish-Fish are available 





A special thank you to my friend Grant 

for allowing me to share his beautiful tablescape

created to display Fish-Fish by Vietri.


Memorial Day
A time to honor all those who have given selflessly to their country.  From the Civil War soldiers to those fighting today on foreign soils, we remember the men and women who have died while serving in the US Armed Forces.  In addition, this year we remember all in Texas and Oklahoma who have recently suffered great loss with the recent tornadoes.
