Bountiful Blue Tablescape

I am joining Susan from Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday!

This is a major PaRtY for us dish collectors that LOVE to play with our obsession!

Be sure to check out all the other great and talented bloggers!

It is WoRth your TiMe!!!

I am playing with my

Blue Crown by Tiara and the Famous BIG Lots Gibson dishes.

My dishes are graciously resting on top of a Blue Willow

placemat that was purchased a couple of years ago from Home Goods. Sadly,

I only have a set of hoo!

Trying to be artistic with my new camera!

I layered with 2 different tablecloths. The toile tablecloth was a bargain at TJMaxx several years ago.
Got that baby for 4 bucks!

A bird's eye view of the centerpiece......

used a floral wreath, cake stand, dried hydrangeas, and a blue willow teapot.

Just a closer look in case ya needed it!

I have used the dried hydrangeas for about 15 years now.

They are from my 1st home as a married woman.

I love using pewter with a blue tablescape!

Just tought I would add a little elegance to the mix!

Thanks for stopping by!
Be sure to check out all the other talented bloggers who love

  6. Wow, no wonder everything looks so beautiful too! Congrats on the new camera and your table is gorgeous, I love the teapot, love all the blue and white, sorry you could just get 4 of the marvelous placemats...can you get 4 more on e-bay maybe?! Beautiful! I just came from TT at Susan's. FABBY

  7. Hi! I've never seen you on Tablescape Thursday before! Good to "meet you" today!!! I am a big, big fan of blue & white, so I'm impressed right off the bat! Doesn't that just sting like crazy when you can't find more than 4 of something you really like???? Makes me nuts! What's even worse is when there are only 3!!! It looks like you were able to make some incredible bargain buys work very well with other treasures. I love it that you have been able to keep your dried hydrangea so pristene over the years. What a nice memory to incorporate in your tablescape! Have a great weekend, and I look forward to seeing you here again soon!

  8. Love your blue & white! Your table is fabulous! Congrats on the new camera. I still have issues taking pictures. Yours came out wonderful! Practice makes perfect, I guess. Thanks for sharing.
    Blessings My Friend,

  10. I'm wondering what kind of new camera you bought. I've been looking at cameras, too. I've loved mine, but it's time to update. Your blue and white tablescape is lovely. Thank you for sharing your charming design. Cherry Kay
