Key points of this table setting

1. Early Arrival of Spring on the Table

Feel the light and refreshing air of spring vibes with celadon items on your table top. 

We created a simple yet elegant table decor by setting individual servings on a gold placemat with celadon plates and basic Mino ware teacups. We laid a table runner made from Japanese Washi paper from Morisa to add a touch of elegance. The white table runner and the gold placemat complement each other well and are a good color combination.

We used the cast iron teapot with the matching trivet when serving tea at the table. The golden white color gives a soft and bright impression, and can be a conversation-starter as it is an authentic Nambu ironware teapot with style and a timeless design.

We served beautiful sakura tea to make the occasion special. Although named sakura tea, it is actually made by pouring hot water over salted cherry blossoms. It is said that the cherry petals gradually opening as hot water is poured into the teacup is thought to symbolize  "opening up the future" and "bringing good luck." Thus, this tea came to be served at celebratory occasions or when entertaining guests in the springtime. 

2. Premium Celadon Tableware - Imari Nabeshima Ware

See and feel each single cherry blossom and leaf with these beautiful Imari Nabeshima ware plates from Hataman Touen's Moist series. The items in the Moist series have a soft hazy texture reminiscent of the spring haze often seen during springtime in Japan. The thick coats of glaze containing specks of iron create the delicate color of celadon and give depth to the patterns.
