Monogrammed Dishes

I’m sure my faithful and loyal readers aren’t surprised by my monogramming anything at all. This time, I’ve monogrammed dishes. I think I posted on here about the Buffalo China I received that came out of a very old church. I had 17 plates with cups and saucers. They were so simple, elegant, classy, and can be used for so many occasions, but they needed something still. That something was a monogram! So I painted an M on the rim of each plate. Still simple, still elegant, still classy, and now with more personality. I plan on using these for a variety of occasions; bunco night, tea parties, brunches, showers, etc.

These were super easy to create. I bought food safe paint at a local craft store. I painted the letter, let it dry for 24 hours, then baked it for 30 minutes to set the design and make it food and dishwasher safe. Anyone can do this.

I have a few other projects like this up my sleeve, too. Can you stand the anticipation?

Oh Wow! That's super cute and very chic too. How did you manage to paint them all by hand and they still all look the same? You never cease to amaze me! haha

did you just get my comment? The internet went all crazy on me. I want credit, dang it! I was totally praising your amazing monogramming abilities... hopefully it went through.
If not- I can't wait to see what you've got planned next!

That is so beautiful. It seems like the kind of thing you could charge a million dollars to do on other people's china.
