Give a man a fish and he has food for a day; teach him how to fish and you can get rid of him for the entire weekend. ~Zenna Schaffer
I’ve only used these fish plates (from T. J. Maxx) in one other post – Fall Fishing in Plaid – complete with fishing poles, tackle box, fishing louers, and all!
This table is more about eating fish than catching them.
Funny…the school of fish, rather minnow-like, hardly presents enough for an entrée.
This table setting started with the place mats. Does paisley remind you of fish? It does to me – some paisleys more than others, depending on the pattern.
The chartreuse chargers (over white DIY Dollar Tree Chargers) plays off the greenish-yellow in the place mats. I think it gets along swimmingly. (Ha! Sorry – couldn’t resist it.)
With the blue accents in dinner plates (T. J. Maxx), stems, and place mats (Tuesday Morning), I pretty much let everything else be in green, yellow, and white.
I shared with you recently that PAM’s (Painter Artist Mom’s) favorite flowers are daisies. Guess what! I discovered only last week that they’re Spunky Daughter’s favorites, too! She thinks it’s wonderful how they both love the same flower. And, it is.
Lemons, of course, are always useful when eating fish. Artichokes? Maybe not so much, but they’re perfect for the color combo.
I’ve never eaten turtle, but we do see them often while fishing.
Repeats of the turtle are found on the cloth napkins (also TJM).
I still have green and white on the plate shelf. The colors have been great for everything since St. Patty’s Day.
I added this beverage server I found many years ago on clearance at Sam’s Wholesale. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw it from a distance. It was half off the regular price, so of course I came home with it!
I just love that it’s so 1990’s. This huge server has been very handy for family reunions and other large gatherings.
On Friday, I’ll share a recipe for Civeche – typically a seafood dish. Have you ever tasted Civeche?
I’d heard of it but never had tasted it before. I’m very surprised at how versatile it is. You can make it with fish, of course, but I also served it with chicken one night. It was very good with chicken and brown rice. I’ll tell you all the details on Friday.
Do you like fish? Is it a regular in your diet?
I’m sharing this post at Tablescape Thursday.
