Tablescape Thursday

Well, as bad as I did not want to take down my July 4th stuff I did! Now onto a little blue, white and silver...

 
I usually begin with my focal point being the main centerpiece but quickly decided I wanted to incorporate my pretty porcelain ladies. Her name is Claire by the way.

 

I have these two pretties in my Girly room as my man calls it and decided they would be perfect with some blue, white and silver. Meet Bella.



 

Silver candelabra took center stage. A touch of blue satin ribbon completed the look.

 

Matching candlesticks on each end of the table.

 

The detail is stunning to me.

 

My good ole faithful goblets really added to this setting.

 

Blue place mat, silver charger and my sweet Goodwill plates...Remember these? Eight for $4.99.

 

 
 The clear little punch cups sit nicely on the plates. Actually big enough for a small cup of coffee or hot tea.

 
Using my Goodwill napkins I found for cheap.

 

Fieldcrest napkins with silver napkin rings and white handled flatware.

 

 
Remember these thrift store cuties?

 
Another touch of blue added to the centerpiece nestled on a piece of white lace.

 
I've had several ask me why did I never place a tablecloth on my table. Though I do use runners, or etc. on the table at times I do like for the table itself to show. First of all my grandfather made my table for me with benches in which I plan to recover soon. 2nd, the table is an odd size and you just can't walk into a store and buy  a tablecloth for it. I have in the past used linens to cover it with it but for the most part...I love my table!

 

$1.00 brought this lovely platter home with me from a yard sale so I have it in a corner.

 
White soup terrain hold my man's goodies! YES he is Nutty Buddy addict! 

 
White milk glass vase with daisies and baby's breath on my beautiful cake stand sitting in another corner. The little blue stones gave it just what I wanted.

 

How about Tea for Three? The coffee cups belonged to my grandmother. Placed them in a silver dish with my favorite tea of all times...Pure Camomile. 

 
Love these cups....

          
Wouldn't be complete without my little white Christmas tree being decorated. So what better to decorate with than blue ribbon, granny's coffee cups and my favorite tea!

 
 
Have I told you how much I love my little white tree? LOL!

 

My little tree sits on a lovely tea tray with legs so decided it needed a little something added to it. 

 

Awe...a little girly and I love it! A goblet with a candy dish turned upside down on top. White milk glass tea cup with saucer with my favorite tea. Adorned with some pretty blue stoned earrings and a silver high heel shoe! Added a napkin wrapped with blue satin ribbon and a pearl. Placed a few blue stones around and it completed the look I was going for.

How about a little vintage look to it.....

 

Had just enough room on the other side of my tea tray for my pretty crystal water pitcher.

 

Love how it all came together.

 

My man says to me, "Why don't you leave this up a while? I said, WHY? Do you really like it? He said, "I LOVE IT BUT I'M TIRED OF TOTING STUFF IN AND OUT OF YOUR SHED! LOL!

I am joing Jann today for Share Your Cup Thursday. She is such a lovely host.

 
Also joining Sandi from Rose Chintz Cottage over at http://sandimyyellowdoor.blogspot.com/2014/07/anne-of-green-gables-tea.html

Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  4. Oh I have a Nutty Buddy fan here, too. Very pretty table and all the more special because your grandfather made it. As regards your comment, you're always sailing through with a cup of coffee in your hand (as fas as I can see). =D

  9. Cindy: Your table is so pretty! You found so many great things at thrift shops for good prices. The blues, whites, and silver is lovely. I love, love, LOVE your tea tray with the pretty white tree! I have a couple of white trees for Christmas time--they're so much fun. Hanging the little high heeled shoe from the teacup was such a cute idea. How wonderful you have that table made by your grandfather. I really liked your hubby's comment at the end, so funny! Thanks for your nice comment on my blog :)

  11. Good Morning Cindy,
    Gorgeous decor, I love too much to list.
    I have Blue and Silver in my dinning room. I also have the matching pitcher to your goblet. I think all our Hubby's get tired of hauling our treasures back and forth. Mine completely wants out of the business, as he keeps pushing for me to get rid of everything in my decor shed :^P

    Have The Best Day Ever!

  12. Cindy, Cindy, Cindy...you DO know how to decorate! Everything is absolutely beautiful. I love blue and white so this would definitely be one that I would say, Leave this out for a long time. Your hubby's comments are so cute!

    What a treasure you have in your table. I wouldn't be covering a table my grandfather made me either! Absolutely gorgeous!

  13. Cindy, a little girlie never hurt. lol! Love the blue with the silver! I picked up some pretty blue napkins at a thrift today. Your table is lovely and the fact that your grandfather made it makes it ever so special! I left a little Americana in the entry till after the 24th. Pioneer Day here in UT. I will take it all down when we get home from our trip. Thanks for sharing (and for the sweetness about me) with SYC.
