Blue, White, and Silver

I am really excited to share with you some of my blue and white, plus some silver for interest; and I am tickled pink to link to Tablescape Thursday hosted by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch

I had to light the candles right away because it is raining cats and dogs, so the sun has faded.

I searched a long time to find just the right blue Iced Beverage stems.  I'll be serving 'the house wine of the South', iced tea of course.  I made Jasmine blossom iced tea.


I was going to use blue and silver San Remo flatware (click HERE to see), then I thought about the curly q's in this flatware and decided to use it.

Do you think this flatware imitates the curvy design in the dinner plates?

Here are the layers.

I sat a silver urn on a square Scarborough dessert plate.

Tea for one on this counter top vignette

After dinner, I plan to relax with a cup of Double Bergamot Earl Grey tea.

Here's a place to rest my used teabag.

Thanks for stopping by to visit.  Do you like blue and white china and accessories as much as I do?  Leave me a comment and let me know.  Take time to enjoy some other beautiful tablescapes at the 96th Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch.

What a beautiful table you've created. I see we have a lot in common. One being that we both posted a blue and white table today and another being that we both wrote about how much we miss the Bombay Company! You really have some lovely pieces. I hope you'll come over and look at my blue and white table too. We may even have some of the same pieces. Thanks for sharing and happy TT to you!

There is nothing better than blue and white! I simply adore it (and most of Linderhofs tables tend to be blue and white!) You have some nice things.

Mimi said...

WOW! S.T.U.N.N.I.N.G. That is one of the prettiest blue and white tables I have seen.

Requi, this table is just stunning! Blue and white always is a winning combination, but your table is exceptional. The china is gorgeous, and I like the blue glasses you found a lot! Where did you find them? I need some!

I just love the blue and white color scheme. You have set such a lovely table. I really like your hurricane holders and that lovely glassware.

Beautiful table. I love the crisp clean feel of blue and white! ANd this is such an extraordinary table!
Your centerpiece is beyond magnificent! I just adore that huge footed urn!
And the glasses were worth the wait. They look just perfect with this table. Such a lovely shade of blue! And silver with this table is just the right touch.
You put togehter a wonderful table! Just a pleasure to stop by!

I very much like your blue & white pieces, and silver is the perfect complement! My favorite tea is Earl Grey -- can't wait to try the double bergamot version!

Happy Tablescape Thursday!

Gorgeous! I really enjoyed seeing all the unique pieces of blue and white! China is so pretty, and the centerpieces very dramatic! Great job!

Love the little tea for one set as well!

Everything is so beautiful! My favorite is the blue and silver piece that is part of the counter top vignette. It's gorgeous!

Sherry said...

Oh, I love all of your blue and white. The dishes and the vase. It is all gorgeous! Very pretty!

Tess said...

Beautiful table...the china is gorgeous and I love the glasses for your "house wine of the south". I don't have anything blue, but this might get me going! It looks like something out of Victoria magazine's May/June blue and white issues. It's so summery.
