My favorite color has always been blue! Do you have a favorite color and do you surround yourself with it? I love all shades of blue and it just makes me so happy. So today I’m going to be setting a table with blue and white antique dishes in “In My Mother’s Home” with a set of blue dishes I picked up thrifting on my way here. I hope you enjoy it, friends!
The Pattern is Enoch Wood’s English Scenery / Wood & Sons 1784
It is a beautiful blue and white porcelain 4 piece place setting that I purchased for $68 at Stone House Antique Center in Chester, Vermont.
I couldn’t wait to set the table in blue!
I discovered Cutlery Couture’s boutique silverware pouches last summer when a friend of mine gifted me the lobster pouches. I fell in love with them and have even collaborated with them for a time or two. They have several patterns to choose from and today I chose the blue hydrangeas to set the table in blue.
Set the Table in Blue
Blue goblets that I found thrifting for $5 in Ogunquit, Maine compliment the blue and white table nicely. I just love collecting colored glassware to compliment different dish patterns. And you can find them very easily and inexpensively in thrift stores and antique shops.
Perfect to set the table in blue!
My mother had a very large pewter collection that she just adored. And I just love how the pewter pairs so beautifully with the blue and white antique dishes when I want to set the table in blue! The foundation of each place setting is a large pewter plate.
Spring is in the Air!
Because today is the first day of spring I am going to add some colorful tulips that I picked up at the local grocery store yesterday. The teapot is also a thrifted blue and white piece that I picked up for around $12 I believe to help me set the table in blue.
I just love the windowsill that is in this dining room. It looks out over the backyard and has a beautiful sill to decorate.

I am on the hunt for blue and white dishes because of you Ann! I just love this beautiful table. Thank you for the inspiration.
Aww, I’m so glad Kim!
My favorite color is blue too! I do tend to have lots of blue around in our home and am particularly drawn to blue glass. This table setting is fantastic!
Thank you so much, Joanne! I am so glad I went back and bought the dishes!
