dinner, on the side

i came across this picture in elle decor and was struck by it - i do love the pattern itself, by kelly wearstler for pickard china, but moreso because i love the idea it gave me to totally change the look of a placesetting by stacking the plates slightly off-center. i tested it out at home, and found that it really works well with coupe plates, rather than plates with an outer rim.

this is a modern way to use even the most traditional china and i'm excited to use this idea for my next dinner party!
