Believe it or not, I did use this set at the beach and set the table with red geraniums. My beach club days are behind me yet when I set this table at home, the fond memories of my seaside days come flooding back. Some things in life do not last and when I set this table my children remark about eating breakfast at the beach on these plates. It's all about creating good memories even something so simple as a pretty blue plate. You can easily collect this by shopping on ebay!
