The Settings

Palma is the queen of pottery! Brad is a champion schlepper when it comes to shopping in Italy. They have learned the easiest way is to just have things shipped home... like this beautiful poppy platter we saw on her last shopping trip.
Everyone of the 6 tables was set with a different table scape and the most beautiful ceramics you have ever seen. I couldn't help but snap some pictures~

This 600 pound ceramic table was shipped from Positano.

It is the perfect place for a gathering of good friends~ for leftovers and paper plates after the cleanup.

That was the best night of all!

I am missing y'all~

Palma said...

OH my goodness, what a cool collage of my dishes! I LOVE it! You sneaky lil thing, bless your heart!

I can't wait to show Brad, as soon as he is done kneading the fig bread dough!

Fabulous post! BLOG of the week!

Sandi McBride said...

Wow, love that looks like a lovely group!

Sugar Bear said...

I agree - shipping things back is definitely the easiest! When we were in Italy we shipped some pottery and I wrapped some in my carry on - I was so nervous it would break!

Nunnie's Attic said...

600 pounds?? The shipping costs alone were probably as much as the table. Gracious! But it is gorgeous.


Southern Lady's Vintage said...

I love, love, love that poppy platter and the table!! Oh my goodness, to own those! Thank you for sharing those!

Jamie Dawn said...

Rhoda~ I am home long enough to do laundry and then I'm off again.
Julie~ Palma's story about getting that thing delivered was hilarious. Needless to say it isn't moving!
Barbara~ I was only joking when I said I was going to put it in my suitcase (I tried but it didn't fit)
