Joan's Trifecta Part Two - Fabulous Tabletop


My Trifecta picks for a winning Derby party?   In my last blog I talked about the most important one,
TASTY TREATS!

But that's just the beginning.

Terrific food deserves a
FABULOUS TABLETOP

Taking my cues from the brightly colored jockey silks, I like to make my Derby table a mix of playfulness and sophistication.


Starting with a citrus yellow charger, I add graphic punch with this polka dot dinner plate


And layer with a black and white jockey salad plate.




This checkerboard place mat is the perfect backdrop for my colorful placesetting.


With a subtle nod to our polka dot theme this stemware and napkin still remains simple and classic. 


What's the third pick in my winning Trifecta?  Coming up in my next blog....

" EMBRACE THE JOYS OF GOOD DESIGN!"
