Tablescape Tuesday – The Blues   23 comments


This was a fun table to put together this week!  I found the blue dishes that were made in England at Goodwill for $2.99 each.  The napkins were an anniversary gift.  The tablecloth is a flat sheet that I had actually used as a bedskirt until I changed the colors in the my guest room.  The blue stemware is plastic.  These are the wine glasses we use for outside entertaining.

The centerpiece is a tin I purchased at Goodwill for $3 and filled with silk hydrangeas that I had.  The candlescape is actually potpouri “strategically placed” and lastly the napkin “rings” are left over Christmas decor I had.  I just added a blue flower from the potpouri pack.

Happy Tablescaping!  For more fun table decorating, head on over to Between Naps on the Porch

  1. Calm, serene, and simply beautiful! The plates are amazing and the little couple are such a nice touch! ~Rhonda 🙂

  2. So so lovely. I am very envious of the energy involved in finding all the goodies and blending them so beautifully together.
    My actual dining table is not in a place that photographs well, although it is a very good spot for it. If I had that energy I envy the trick might be to get a card table from the shed and set that up in a nice clear space I have.
    I must go through my Mum’s linens and that would prompt me.
    Mind you the odd patchwork fabric could make a fine table cloth.
