Designed by Amy Butler for Mikasa, Vintage Botanica looks modern despite its vintage vibrant floral pattern. I really like it. I am looking for a new dinnerware set. Amy Butler designed a set that can be a contender.

The shallow bowl centerpiece by Martha Stewart is fun and unusual. Start by making a flat base on daikon radishes and turnips. Martha suggests inserting black-headed pushpins to form eyes. Draw a happy mouth by carving a half-moon into the vegetable with a paring knife, and fill it in with a black marker.
