French Country Lunch

This week I wanted to do another luncheon for the girls I work with at the thrift store. The colors blue and yellow kept popping into my head for some reason. I hunted around for something real simple and this is what I came up with.
















Placemats/napkins-Goodwill
Yellow napkin rings-Yard sale
Flatware-Oneida Afterglow
White dinner plate-Gibson Regalia-Savers
Blue salad plate-Varages, pattern unknown-Savers
Berry bowl-British Anchor Beacon Hill-ARC Thrift
Blue seeded glassware-Savers
Footed centerpiece bowl-Savers
Blue/white orbs-Savers/Goodwill

Thanks for taking time out of your busy day to visit my little blog! I really do appreciate it.

I will be joining a few parties this week, please make sure you stop by to visit with them, too!

Let's Dish at Cuisine Kathleen
Wednesdays Bunny Hop Party at Bunny Jeans Decor

Marigene, those wonderful placemats and napkins are the perfect base for your pretty dishes and those stunning cobalt glasses! I think all of us LOVE blue and yellow together. I know your friends were thrilled to enjoy a meal at this pretty table.

Marigene, if I was a guest at your table, I would feel like I was in France! What a pretty table you set...love the quilted placemats with all your pretty dishes and those lovely napkins.

Oh, yeah....French Country to the max!!! There was a very good reason the yellow was hanging around in your brain...there was a great tablescape to be made!!! I have never had a lot of success in pulling off the French Country look. I've only tried a couple of times, and I wasn't pleased with the end result. It has been 5 or 6 years since I last tried, so maybe it's time to give it another whirl. You did a marvelous job! You have such a keen eye for finding great things!

This is a gorgeous table. Love all the dishes - what pretty patterns! And the placemats/napkins are perfect. I don't know what "Savers" is, but I wish we had one here!

This is definitely my kind of table, Marigene. Love the combo of yellow and blue and of course the French country style. Great looking plates. The maker is new to me.

Gorgeous table Marigene; I'd love to be a guest in it. I love the pretty yello place mats and napkins to match and your dishes are beautiful and perfect for this great table with yello accents. One of my very fav combos is this one, blue, white with yellow! Thank you for the lovely comments you left me for my 4th. tablescape post. Happy weekend!

I love this table. The setting is so beautiful with all that color. Love the blue galsses. I love French Country I decorate in French Country too and Old World.

The table looks like mine did you get it from Ballard. Just curious.

What a beautiful French country table. The blue and yellow were obviously going around in your head for a good reason. Lucky are those who are invited to enjoy it, including us in blog land.

Diann said...

This is so pretty Marigene. I love blue and yellow together. I bet the ladies loved your table, I know I would have! And I can't help but notice all the gorgeous white tureens in the background! I remember when you were having a hard time find even one! They are wonderful! Thank you for sharing this with us at TTF. I hope you have a fantastic day!

Pat said...

Hi Marigene, NO rain here. My water bill was $100. You sure have a nice collection of tureens! That yellow pattern is really nice with the dishes. I haven't found any good dishes, either for quite a while.

Gina said...

This is my very favorite color combination. The place mats and napkins are to die for. Wow, what a good, goodwill you have. Our GW is the pits. I have NEVER seen anything that come near this.
Love the stems too. What is Savers? I noticed that a lot of your lovely things came from there. Obviously, I don't have one of those.
Have a great weekend. Ginger:)

Beautiful blue, white and yellow! Love this!

Karen Mary Butterfly said...

I will always love yellow and blue. It's just so pretty. I love the way you layered all the different plates with their different textures and patterns.They look great. I have a white pitcher collection and now have two white soup tureens....Yours are to die for! Love them on display like that! I am happy to be a new follower!

Robin said...

What a welcome site this table is after all the red, white and blue this week! I can't believe you got all of it at thrift stores too! I have 2 of those glasses and would love at least 2 more. It looks a little French and a little Italian to me so I would expect a wonderful tasting meal!
