Good Bye Pink and Red


It's that time again...Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps On The Porch. Thank you, Susan, for hosting. If you have never checked out the tables, you are missing out on something very inspiring.


To enlarge any photo, just click on it for more detail.


I am about done with pink and red for a while. I chose blue for the nice clear blue of the sky the past couple of days. I am thinking SPRING from now on. The blue and white tablecloth is one I found at Savers, the napkins were from a cooking forum swap several years ago and the flatware is Rogers Deluxe Plate Gracious 1939, which is the pattern I grew up with.

The place setting is a white ironstone charger/dinner plate with a blue edged dinner plate, white salad plate and clear blue soup bowl stacked atop one another.

The water/iced tea/lemonade glass is Indiana Glass Whitehall. These are one of my favorites, at least until I get my hands on the green! The blue is a crystal clear shade...beautiful.


Stacked plates.


Candlelit table.

Thank you for taking the time to come visit. Hope to see you here next week.

Looking good, Marigene....blue is one of my favorite colors so this one warms my heart on a clear, cold, and windy VT day. The silverware brings back good old memories.
Thanks,
Delma

I really love how cheerful your tablescape is. I love the blue and white theme but you handled it more comfortably than most. I'd really enjoy sitting at this table. I hope you have a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary

Marigene, we were thinking alike this week. I love this blue and white tablescape with your collections of dishes! It's a crazy week for me, so I won't be playing TT this week. But my blue and white table is set up and ready to go for next time.

Tricia said...

Marigene, you're right -- blue and white looks so refreshing after all the reds and pinks we've seen lately. I really like the tablecloth -- it makes a great base for your pretty stacked dishes. Love those glasses!

Jacqueline said...

The blue is refreshing! Our skies started out blue this morning and now are gray and ominous.

I am tired of my pink and red too, but it hasn't been out very long so I don't know if I can put it all away yet, but it won't be long.

Diann said...

Hi Marigene!
I'm with you about the Valentine look for awhile. I think that is why I went so different with the colors this week for tablescaping. I will probably post the pink table in a week or two. I love that you did blue. Nothing is fresher than blue and white. this table looks like Spring should be heading our way soon! Very pretty!

Debbie said...

I'd like to get my hands on the green version of those glasses too. I do love your blue ones, though.

I am very ready for spring myself and really like your table.

Kathleen said...

Love that tablecloth and the glasses are so pretty! Looks really crisp.
Pretty table and I am done with red and pink too...until Spring, ie!

Sarah said...

Me too, went straight to blue.. Your table is quite lovely. I love the dishes you chose. Great silverware. very nostalgic.

Love the blue and white! Looks very springy!

Donnie said...

What a crisp clean looking table. It would look lovely in a country farmhouse kitchen. Loved the blue and white and once had a set of those glasses but my dil has them now. Very pretty.

Jacqueline~Cabin and Cottage said...

I almost reached for blue today too! Beautiful! but I do see your Fostoria too! Thanks for the info. . .

I love plaid, and I adore your plaid tablecloth! Your mix of patterns is very cleverly done...a wonderful balance...great eye for design. I have the Indiana Whitehall in blue, and it's one of my go-to patterns, too. Thank you for sharing your charming design and for stopping by my post. Cherry Kay

Your blue and white table is so inviting and the colorful flowers add to the warmth of the total setting. I want your blue glasses....the color is such a soft share of blue....robin's egg blue and a difficult color to find. Thanks for sharing.

Tess said...

What a "cool" change from all of the red and pink. This is such a pretty table and I can see you are already thinking spring

Marigene,
What a lovely blue and white post! This would have been "perfect" in my "dream home" where blue was the main color theme! Thank you for such a lovely post! It has been warm enough here on the prairie to open windows and doors the past two days! Have a wonderful weekend, dear!
Fondly,
Pat

NICE! I like the water glasses. I really like it when you put homemade food on the table, blueberry muffins would have been great! Get cookin'! I guess I'm just hungry. Lynne

susan said...

Marigene-I am definitely a blue person and I love this! If I find the green glasses, I'll get them and we can swap :) I love that half of your grands call you one thing and the other half has another name. We did that in our family too ! Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment!
