Blue and White

Welcome to Tablescape Thursday! It's always such a great place to find amazing tables.
Today I'm sharing a blue and white table, one that even surprises me! I didn't think I had enough blue around to put a table together, but as it turns out, I've found bits and pieces here and there!


My dining room window gets the afternoon sun, it's always a joy to see all the bright blue!


The blue glass ball is actually a vintage Christmas ornament that belonged to my grandmother.
It's quite heavy!



As the sun sets, the candles were lit.






...a couple of friends stopped by...








all candle holders/odds and ends: Goodwill, Dollar Store
bottles: Pier I
goblets: Garden Ridge
flatware: Oneida, Michelangelo
chargers: Marshall's
dinner/salad plates: Lenox, Opal Innocence Carved
napkins: homemade

I'm linking with Smiling Sally and her Blue Monday as well as Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for her Tablescape Thursday.




Thanks so much for visiting...enjoy your day!

  11. Sharlotte, Blue and white is one of my favorite table color palates! YOu certainly did pull off this table. It is so soothing and there are so many wonderful element to look at. I love your beautiful white plates. I have a thing about white plates. Also your napkins are beautiful and I love how they are so prettily folded on top of the soft white plates. So pretty. What a treasure to have your grandmother's colbalt blue Christmas balls. I have never seen any like those. Do you keep them on display all year? This is a fabulous table!
