Table Setting #55
Host a Spring Party- Authentic Sushi
Filled with Sakura motifs, this table setting expresses Japanese spring. Why don't you throw a special gathering with a gorgeous Kutani ware Sushi plate?
The Hiracle chopstick rest and soy sauce plate set is perfect for a spring party. The Sakura motif and pale colors will add flowers to your spring table setting. Your guests will love the surprise of the Sakura shape that appears when you pour in soy sauce.
For the teacups, I chose Mino ware, which has distinctive delicate lines. It is just the right size to fit in your hand and looks very elegant. It looks great with the color of the green tea. For the saucer, I chose a "Kumiko-zaiku" (a Japanese technique of assembling wooden pieces without the use of nails) coaster to match the long tray of the centerpiece.
This set of sake cups, an indispensable part of sushi, is from the Hanazume series of Kutani ware. The gourd-shaped Sake bottle is very unique and looks gorgeous. A rectangular plate is placed underneath as a tray and set in the center of the table.
In the center of the table, I placed a long tray made of "Kumiko-zaiku". On the top, I used a soy sauce plate and chopstick rests as well as a spoon for amuse-bouche from the same series. By repeating the Sakura motif, you can make the spring theme more impressive.
