Love Nest

These gorgeous Vintage Noritake Salad Plates form the perfect marriage with my pretty Love Nest
I prefer to call these "Cake Plates". After all, if given the choice between Cake and Salad, well...it's a no brainer.

The colors in them inspired the Nest. Why is it us Girlie Girls love pinks, soft baby blues, and buttery yellows? 

It's a nice change from the Reds so plentiful in my home. 
Every now and then, I need a little softness.

  21. Well, I would need two of those plates.

    First a big pile of salad........

    Then a big piece of cake!
