I have found myself smitten; heads over heels; in LOVE with blue and green this summer. I think it all started with a post I did back in February, HERE...
that featured this table, that I am still head over heels swooning about.
And then I posted this table. Still haven't seen blue flowers anywhere!!!
And then came these goblets.
Horchow's when they have their 25-30% off everything sale.
Bahia - green feet on a gorgeous blue bowl.
At Tuesday Morning last week, I found some Waterford place mats in a gorgeous light blue linen.
They had 8, and then Saturday morning there was another set of 4 (to make 12) on eBay.
They were meant to be!!
I found that I had a plaid napkin that had both blue and green. Perfect!
Added a white World Market napkin ring.
The Cambridge flatware from Horchow's.
Cabbage plate from Bordallo Pinheiro.
A pasta plate made in Italy with a gorgeous blue edge.
The white daisies give just the feeling I wanted, relaxed and casual.
The tall etched hurricanes are a Pottery Barn find and the blue vases came from Home Goods in Dallas.
One tip about place mats:
Don't crowd everything onto the place mat, it's better to improvise and or leave off a piece instead of cramming everything on the place mat seam to seam.
This is some of the hardest working flatware I have.
Are you tired of this color combination already?
Not this year, I am not.
As I was playing around with what to use, I discovered a few combinations that will be perfect.
Salad on a World Market Passaro plate.
And if I wanted to dress it up, a blue and white china plate with an elegant embroidered napkin.
Totally a very versatile combination.
