We love having company at Linderhof -- whether for lunch or dinner. There is nothing like a summer day in the breakfast room watching the birds feeding and feasting on foods mostly from the farmer's market.
I don't have as many dishes as some -- prefering to use those that I love over and over again -- like my blue and white Spode Blue Room. The plates I used here for the luncheon as well as a Spode Blue Italian milk jug to hold the flower arrangement.
But I do have these wonderful tomato plates -- salad plates actually although BIG salad plates that are perfect for a summer salad which includes tomatoes. A Williams Sonoma mark down, they're used often in the summer.
A white cloth over a green floor length one. Green napkins in my silver napkin rings. A simple table but one that suits luncheons at Linderhof.
But the best thing to go on the tomato plate is a green salad -- with Farmer's market or garden tomatoes.
And then each guests can see the tomatoes on the bottom of their plate when they finish. There are 4 and each plate is a different tomato. A feast of tomatoes for the mouth and when finished, a feast of tomatoes for the eyes.
Please join Susan at Between Naps on the Porch to see what other tablescapes are offered up this Thursday. Everyone is so creative with their tablescapes and Tablescape Thursday makes Thursdays extra fun!
