Blue and white inspiration
From: The Style Sisters
Lately, I’ve been horribly smitten with blue and white tables. I am thinking the influence is coming from blogs, pinterest, magazines.. etc.
And I do not have but one set of blue dishes. No solids to go with them, nope, nada. So before I go off into the wild blue yonder…
I did a bit of looking, in my files. And I’m going to share some of my finds with you today!

I love the table.. and the ginger jar vases. The dishes are not even blue.. but you don’t notice that until you take a really close look. Maybe I should just find some blue things? Notice the sweet silver salt and peppers? I even see spot a cute salt cellar above the forks. The draping tulips just make me happy.

Yvonne always stacks her dishes so well. Oh wait, I do have those blue and white calico plates, right above the larger white plate with the gorgeous edges. Notice too that each blue plate or accessory has a different pattern. So interesting and fabulous to look at.

A very crisp white tablecloth with small motifs is a wonderful backdrop to the china.. Note the blue berries on the napkin ring. The dinner plate is clear which lets the salad plate just float above the table.. intriguing.

I love all the white. And just the touches of blue on this table. Especially the blue flowers in the white vases.

Dark blue tablecloth, white flatware. I do have blue flatware. Once again tulips.

Some inspiration for next winter.. dusted pinecones in a blue wash bowl. I love this. I do love this a lot!
Of course Cherry Kay has blue and white. And stunning blue and white it is. I have that flatware, so there is a start. The toile linen provides a perfect backdrop for the dishes.
This was a very early tablescape from the Susan. Actually, the second tablescape one!! The placemats are just fabulous. Love those chunky candles in what appear to be flow blue candlesticks.

What is not to love? The gorgeous blue and white plate, the twig flatware, the napkin and just look at the rim on the white plate. I think this would be heavenly on a Tattersall tablecloth.
From: Tablescapes at Table 21 Just one of the few with which Alycia has bedazzled us. Gotta love those rice bowls. And once again, ginger jars.
Next week, I think I’ll try my hand at just blue and white. I certainly have enough inspiration. I know I can visit so many of you and pull from your inspiring tables, too. It shall be a complete surprise to you and to me, to see what I can pull together. Maybe, just maybe I can persuade my dad he doesn’t need Mom’s china??? LOL
Linking to the hostesses who let us come out and play at their parties:
