Two Favorites...Blue and Green
My favorite time of the week, Tablescape Thursday with Susan at Between Naps On The Porch. Thank you, once again, Susan for hosting this fun meme.

Today's table is using my very favorite color combination...blue and green. I first tried lilacs on the table, but the the cat kept trying to get to them. I got sick of shooing her away...she had already knocked one vase over before I got started.
I changed to a smaller vase and used some viburnum, instead.
I started with my Liberty Blue dinner plates.
Then I added Wood & Son Glenwood salad plates.
And finally, little Blue Willow type dishes. The only marking on the back is an embossed "made in England".
All of you real collectors, please don't gasp that I am showcasing a cute, but damaged, little serving dish with a band of blue/white decoration around the outside. (Don't worry that I am using it to serve food in, because I am not!) There are no markings on the bottom so have no idea who made it or how old it is. It does seem to be fairly old, though. I found it at the local ARC Thrift Store for 50¢ and can't resist anything blue and white.
The band around the outside...and you can see this dish has many years of use on it...it has been thoroughly washed a couple times since I bought it. I may try bleaching it.
This gravy boat was found in Fort Scott, Kansas is an Alfred Meakin Spray made in England, possibly between 1875-1897.
Don't you just love the blue and green together?
The flatware is Community Afterglow 1956.
Table overall. The linen tablecloth was a thrift store find some time ago.
Thank you for taking the time to visit, it is very much appreciated. Please stop by Between Naps On The Porch so you see other fabulous tablescapes.
