Did you know that 1+1=3? You are going to be so grateful for this fun little arithmetic lesson! Okay, class in session. Today I am going to show you how I created three separate looks using two Mikasa casual dinnerware patterns. The first look uses the French Countryside dinnerware set, the second look uses the Antique Pear dinnerware set, and the third look combines the two.

I absolutely LOVE the French Countryside pattern. It reminds me of antique ironstone and can be dressed up or pared down. It truly is the perfect everyday pattern.

For my French Countryside tablescape, I chose to keep things very simple and fresh with a neutral palette. The only pops of color come from the blueberries in the silver pails. I bought those adorable pails at a thrift store years ago and have always wanted to use them in a tablescape. Today seemed like the perfect day for it! I used a blueberry bush as my centerpiece and blueberries with thyme twigs in the pails.

I placed a script table runner, cork board trivets (that I made three years ago), and silver accents to make this table perfect for any simple meal.

All that is missing here are a few friends, a crusty loaf of bread, and some soup!

Below is a source list in case you would like to get the look for yourself. And in looking at the picture below, I see that one of these things is not like the other. My picture was photobombed by a soup spoon from the Bravo collection! You have to watch those Bravo utensils. They are always trying to steal the show.

French Countryside Table Source List:

For my second look, I used dinnerware from Mikasa’s Antique Countryside collection. I think this collection is perfect for a brunch or high tea. As a mom of two boys, I don’t get to indulge my girlish side in decor nearly as much as I would like.

Antique Countryside Pear

Each Pear Antique Countryside dish includes a bluebird, pear, butterfly, crown and French script. What more could a girly-girl ask for?

Antique Countryside Pear

For this tablescape, I was trying to channel an English garden vibe. I used a green ruffly runner in a pear green, with a mirror (stolen from the bathroom wall), and a white pitcher of fresh flowers. I love how it turned out!

These plates are so adorable that they are almost too cute to eat off of. I’m sure I could be persuaded, depending on the food–especially if there is chocolate involved, but my word are they ever cute!

Eating granola and yogurt out of these bowls will be a delight each morning :).

To spice up my table a bit, I used pears at each place setting as the favor/placecard. I think all tablescapes are cuter with some type of personalized take-away.

If you’d like to get the Antique Countryside look for yourself, here is a source list of the items I used .

For my third look, I combined the two patterns to create a look that I am calling French Pear.

This look mimics the neutral palette from the French Countryside tablescape, yet the salad plates from the Pear Antique Countryside collection give it that extra pop of color.

For the centerpiece, I used a succulent planter that I created. A tutorial for it will be coming up soon! It’s a house shaped planter and makes a charming focal point.

Mixing all of the Mikasa Countryside collections is easy to do. They lend themselves to being mixed and matched to create different looks to suit your event.
