ELEGANT BLUE & WHITE

never imagined how many people would join in for her  Tablescaping party.  Here it is the 100th Thursday and 
so many people have come to love and participate in this fabulous event that it has become a Blogging phenomenon!
I hope you will check out all the posts for this wonderful
milestone for Tablescape Thursday
  I decided to do an elegant but simple setting
in Blue and White for this celebration table
For a centerpiece I gathered some flowers from my yard used a vintage Milk Glass vase placed on a wicker mirror as a tray 
with tea lights for shimmer
A hand me down lace tablecloth and a blue place mat
start each place setting
I layered white charger, dinner plate, milk glass lunch plate and a bowl matching the dinner plate
A blue water goblet and small wine glass
A dark blue napkin and the white napkin rings
I won in a giveaway and received these from Style Sisters
My favorite silverware was a wedding gift to my parents
Coffee will be served after dinner
The dinnerware is Blue Onion by USA pottery
I found this at the thrift and on 1/2 price day
The platter, creamer & sugar also bought 1/2 price
 Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed your visit to my Blue & White Table
I am also joining in with Suzanne at 
Most of this table is vintage and thrifted

Always,
Linda

Pretty setting for a meal or just something to drink and good conversation.

Mimi said...

Linda, love the crispness of your white with blue table. I haven't seen the Blue Onion pattern in quite some time, very pretty. I keep looking for those reticulated milk glass plates but haven't been lucky, yet.

I love the table scape (can you believe it is Susan's 100th). Love the crisp blue and white. Some colors together make things so much brighter and full of life then others.

What a pretty table, Linda, and I love your blue and white china and heirloom flatware. I like how you used both blue and clear goblets, too!

I can't believe that Susan has done 100 of these tablescape events. I don't participate every week, but I love to when I can.

Happy Tablescape Thursday...

XO,

Sheila :-)

Linda (More Fun Less Laundry) said...

Hi fellow Linda! now, where do I find someone to give me a hand me down lace tablecloth like that? It's beautiful! I have a bowl that matches your white milk glass salad plates but I've never seen plates like that! I use it often and love it. Your table is very pretty. Linda

Linda, I always love blue and white, and your table really shows it off well! Love how the deep blue placemats and napkins make the pattern of the dishes stand out. Very elegant!

Linda,
you have made a pretty table with all this white and blue shades, it's so fresh and festive. The flatware is pretty, too and I love those blue glasses. Thank you for sharing your festive table.
