Decorated china plates by Pearl Lowe from her book 'Pearl Lowe's Vintage Craft' LOVE this idea and may have to nick it.
Darling Kewpie Blunderboo baby painted by Florence Baker in the style of Rose ONeill on a French Limoges china plate. Smiling baby with blue bird pulling on the Blunderbo sash wrapped around baby. Clover leaves and flowers border the plate with a gold rim. 7 1/2 inches in diameter 19.5
Instead of renting expensive china sets, scour thrift shops, flea markets, and antiques stores to collect mixed china patterns to serve all guests. Could keep these for after the wedding too! Would be relatively expensive though.
