I am a huge fan of Toile....especially blue and yellow...such a cheerful combination.. so when I spotted these little plates a couple of years ago, I had to grab them. Here I combined them with a gold charger, yellow place mat and white dinner plate.
The linen napkin is secured with a mini blueberry wreath.....
This is my favorite... I used a blue willow dinner plate under it and i think it really made the colors pop... the toile place mat really sets it off..
In French, toile means fabric or linen... the pattern was created in a small village near Versailles, called Jouy.....in 1760 by Christopher Philippe Overkampt..Usually the designs depict love, travel, royalty, mythology or a pastoral countryside. These designs remain popular and are considered classics .
Now..............bring on the French Fries !!!!
