As blue as the sky

We are having the most gorgeous autumn weather here at the moment. The days are warm and sunny but this week we finally have some lovely rains coming our way.

I bought 2 blue dinner plates and matching side plates a while ago and I hadn't used them yet so I thought I would make a very feminine table out in the garden in the sunshine.





























I tied the plates and white bowls up with some strips of white tulle just to change things a little.



























Sparkling crystal glassware looked lovely on the white table.



























I used some of my white table runners which I had washed and dried in the dryer and left them un-ironed. I'm not sure if I like this look or not.....



























The gorgeous flowers belong in DNo 1's bedroom but they looked perfect on this table.







































Layers of gorgeous white tulle like this would be fabulous for a wedding.


























The plates are the same colour as the sky!!

Hello Suzy,
Love the baby blue! Your table is pretty enough to be a wedding table. I always love seeing tulle as it is so delicate and lends a softness to any setting. Thank you for sharing your pretty table with Tea Time today and have a beautiful day.

Blessings,
Sandi

I like your table, blue and white are my favorite.
My mom has flatware similar to yours, Damask Rose, lovely name.
I particularly like your blue plates for pure vanity reasons, they are the same shade of blue as my eyes.

Terri said...

Gorgeous! Who wouldn't want to have tea outside with a setting like yours!
I love your new blue plates. They look so stunning with white, and your fab white tea cups. Thank you so much for sharing today.
Hugs,
Terri

Love your pics. I am learning that everything does not have to be ironed. I think it depends on a casual setting or more formal. More formal...I'm digging out the iron!

Thank u for the wonderful pics. They are just lovely. Just where u keep all of this is beyond me. I want to start collecting but until I have my own home it's hard not to wish for some loveliness in my life like this.
