When Mother’s Day rolled around, my grandmother came to mind. I so wanted to set a tablescape in her memory. How she loved to fish!
I’ve had these fish plates since last summer’s family reunion in my parents’ home town in Tennessee. Our flea marketing paid off with these party plates for cheap (Itching to Look at Other People’s Junk).
Plastic salad plates beneath give them color. Otherwise the fish would be nearly invisable!
I wished for yellow roses for a centerpiece. They were my grandmother’s favorite. Roses were not to be, so lemons it is!
Ha! Not many people include a cutting board and electric filet knife in a center collection. I can’t think of eating fish without thoughts of the work that goes into preparing it – along with the filet knife that I rely on so much.
The minnow plates enhance the fishie theme.
The plastic flatware resembles corral or woody areas beside fish ponds. The detail is repeated in the centerpiece salad set. Imagine a salad decorated with wedges of lemon to use on the fish – and the salad.
The table is set with all shades of water, from greens to blues.

Even the table-cloth edging somewhat mimics fish netting.
Does this get you in the mood for a fish dinner out on the patio? Do you prefer regular fish, or filet?
