Flower Style Editor Amanda Smith Fowler always has a few tricks up her sleeve to provide the wow factor in the tables she sets for our “At The Table” column. Recently, she retrieved a vintage oyster plate from her china cabinet to put the finishing touch on a place setting inspired by a fabulous abstract print she chose for the tablecloth—Clarence House’s Maramba fabric in Plum.
Where else have we seen these fun plates lately? Interior designer James Farmer used a row of Majolica oyster plates as graphic, flower-like punctuation points on open shelving in the serene green kitchen shown below.
To get the look, shop for vintage oyster plates at your local antiques shop or through online sources such as Chairish, 1stDibs, Etsy, or Ebay. Amanda found hers at Adams Antiques & The Potager in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
