Friends That Like Dishes!

Cloud White and Sky Blue

It is still extremely hot here, but relief may be on the way...we are supposed get some much needed rain tonight and then starting Friday the temperatures will drop from 100°+ down into the 80°s. I will believe it when I check the thermometer!




After last week with red and white, I thought, why not blue and white. Yes, I am using the same white damask tablecloth, but everything else is different. I started with the woven placemats/chargers and layered with white. I have used cobalt napkins and seeded/bubble glassware. The flatware has the same 
cobalt along with yellow and green against white.








The flatware is by Gibson, not sure of the pattern. I found 5-piece place settings, service for 8 at Goodwill for $3.99...I couldn't pass this up in a million years! There was also a set of dishes and glassware in the same pattern that I passed on. I am already sorry about that...






The Gibson Regalia dinner plate is being used as a charger today. I have layered a plate with a brownish grey washed rim (from TJMaxx, it just has a B in a shield on the back), a white plate from Pier One for the underplate to the soup bowl which is American Atelier Athena.

















Thanks for taking the time to visit today.

I will join a few parties this week:

Thank you ladies for hosting each week!

The blue and white table is lovely and charming. I also like your tureen filled hutch in the background.

Love your flowered flatware - so cute and cheery! But what really caught my eye are the beautiful soup turenes in the background - beautiful!

Mary said...

Oh I love your flatware find and perfect with your blue & white! I would have had a hard time passing on the dishes! I have a few pieces I've picked up at TJ Maxx and HG that have that same B on the back~ I would love to know the manufacturer!

Marigene,
Whew! It's still hot here on our side of the Prarie, too! We did have two days of double digit temperatures...then yesterday it crept back into the triple digits, once again!I adore all the texture shown in your rim shot of the dinnerware used in this tablescape! The cobalt blue is striking with the white. Your cabinet in the background with the white tureen's is intriquing! Here's hoping you'll have a cooler weekend , dear friend!
Fondly,
Pat

Hi Marigene,

I do love your table; it's so pretty and I'm a big fan of blue, white and yellow. All your plates look so pretty together, and the flatware is just darling. The cobalt goblets are so pretty and I love your blue and white carpet balls. I have those exact same napkin rings -- mine came from World Market last year. This is a great tablescape, Marigene!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

How pretty! The cobalt blue is so striking and the whole table has a wonderfully cool feel about it! Wow on that flatware deal! Your dish layering is gorgeous. Always like to get a peek at your tureens! Good luck with that cooler weather--it sure isn't coming from our direction!

You can never go wrong with blue & white! This is a pretty table and I love the flatware.

Annie said...

Love the blue and white - so nice and cool looking for the HHH weather! I used to have some kitchen ware in blue and yellow, back in another life LOL. I never lost my love for that color combination, just did some redecorating is all.

What a terrific find on the flatware. I always like having some fun flatware to use on occasion. Blue and white is a perfect pair for my mind and for this lovely tablescape. And the collection of white tureens in the hutch are a fabulous backdrop for this table!!! ~ sarah
