Good morning, chic readers! We’re so excited today to share with you a super fun project that we got to do with Mikasa and some other fun bloggers, creating DEAR CAROLINA-themed tablescapes! (Enter below to win 4 place settings of the Mikasa china we picked and a copy of the book!)

We wanted to have a little party in Beaufort, of course, and, for our soiree? We’ve been big fans of DEAR CAROLINA sip and signs, so we thought we’d have one at our house!


We had the pleasure of setting our table with this fabulous Mikasa Ortley dinnerware. We love the pattern, of course, but the best thing about this china is that it is made with the highest-quality bone china — but meant for everyday use!


It’s the kind of intersection of form and function that would make Khaki, the designer main character from DEAR CAROLINA, very proud! When you have kids and work and a million commitments, easy entertaining is a must!


And this beautiful Mikasa Laura glassware is so amazing. Thin and delicate yet durable, it is made from lead-free crystal and transitions fabulously from brunch to Bordeaux!



Another touch Khaki would love? Hydrangeas cut fresh from the backyard.


It’s another element that is quick, simple and oh-so easy.


Another of our favorites? Paper straws, of course! Don’t they just say party?


This Kelby Flatware is wonderful. It’s heavy and simple but elegant, perfect for every day and those special occasions!


Capiz shell placemats add a touch of elegance and nod toward the beach.


And the guests can’t leave without their special favor — a copy of DEAR CAROLINA!


Don’t you just love the basketweave pattern on this china? We think it’s a nod toward a natural fiber but in a color that will stay chic for years.

We just love the way it all looks together!


The other lovely ladies below were kind enough to help spread the word about DEAR CAROLINA and these amazing Mikasa pieces. Check out what everyone else did with their fabulous Mikasa china–in other fun patterns! And visit their blogs for more chances to win a set of Mikasa china and a copy of DEAR CAROLINA!
