After a lunch at Caserta's of WimpySkippies, I went to the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) Museum of Art.

Blue and white ceramics: Chinese plate (c. 1810),
Dutch plaque (c. 1700), and Chinese tea caddy

blue and white ceramics for sale in the gift shop!
Walked over to the RISD building complex between Waterman and Angell Streets.

Katrina had reserved a room off the cafeteria to arrange the flowers for the wedding.
Most of the flowers came from Mary Jane's gardens
