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 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.
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.
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 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.
I just love the windowsill that is in this dining room. It looks out over the backyard and has a beautiful sill to decorate.
