I don't think I own anything marine blue but I cannot resist a bargain.... don't focus on the above placemats for too long or they will affect your eyes!!!
I saw these placemats out on special the other day for $3.00 each and then there was a further reduction of 50% so they cost $1.50 each. Too good to miss.
The flowers were also on special for $3.00 per bunch late on Saturday afternoon so they came home with me too.
I really liked the flip side of the mats better and as I have learnt in tablescaping there are no rules, I used the reverse side.
As I have very little blue in my house I thought the obvious way to go was all white. I started with my favourite white cloth and napkins and just added to that.
Simple clear glassware looked fine along with silver flatware.
This is my everyday white dinnerset and I shopped the house for white candles.
I love the look of lots of candles together (this is what I am planning for Christmas!).
I placed the flowers in a very tall glass vase in the centre of the table - it looks a bit like a volcano!! I would never have the flowers like this for guests but for today it looks ok surrounded by white candles.
I will take the placemats to my beachhouse and I am sure they will be used there.
Lots of reflection in the tall vase has a really pretty effect.
The flower stems look nice with all the candles around.
These larger white candles in the pots were out on a bargain table for $4.00 each so I was able to grab some ready for Christmas - they also had red so I have some of them too!!
