I Almost Missed the Missoni Boat

I like to think of myself as someone who knows what's going on in the world, particularly when shopping is involved.  So how did I possibly miss the recent Missoni phenomenon at Target?

There I was that eventful Tuesday, reading a news story on my computer and learning that, apparently, all of the Missoni merchandise had already sold out!  How did I miss this?  I didn't get anything?  Who is Missoni?  I wanted in.  Something bright or ziggy baggy.  Luckily, weeks later, I stumbled upon these two (yes, just two) dinner plates at my local Target.  I quickly grabbed them, then the wheels started spinning.

I remembered those pink and purple honeycomb and bee napkins I made over the summer (Raspberry Hive Fabric by Patty Young for Michael Miller).   Seems like they found their soul mates with these Missoni plates.

And those eggplant grass mats that I recently purchased from Crate & Barrel...I knew they would come in handy time and time again.

My bright green Lyla wine glasses from the Crate seem right at home on this table.  

Tying it all together is a gauzy purple table runner (actually a Converse scarf from Target)!  I am so glad I got my chance to jump on the Missoni bandwagon.

As always, remember to check out all of the other creative tablescapes at Between Naps on the Porch every Thursday!

  2. I missed the Missoni boat too...I do love the plates you snagged and love those napkins, they are soulmates! :) Great job!

  3. You had me with all the purple and pink -- great colors and beautifully put together.

  4. Those plates are like art! I LOVE them! I may have to hunt them down myself. Your table looks drop dead gorgeous! :)
