Blue Willow teacups

Did you ever sit with your Nana and share a cup of tea in a Blue Willow teacup? I know I did and just looking at it brings back many memories.  This week’s table shows that the old Blue Willow is still as lovely today. I have a whole dresser (here) of gorgeous blue and white china. I say I’m not a ‘blue’ person but a whole dresser filled with blue and white china just catches my eye.
I have teamed the old fashioned china with a very modern piece of fabric I have used for a runner. Pink table mats I have had forever team nicely  with the runner. The blue glasses I picked up from the thrift store for $1.50 each.
Once again I have used my pretty polka dot flatware. This is my favourite and going on the comments I have received lots of others love it too!!!

A collection of blue pitchers and a couple of blue and white china balls sit a top a pretty pink cake stand in the centre. The single candlestick was the first gift I received from Son No1 when he started high school and had woodworking classes! I hope this table brings back memories of sipping tea in Blue Willow cups with your nana.

Hello SuzyQ,
What a beautiful table setting! I agree with you, blue willow patterns are just as lovely today as they were years ago. I don't think they will ever be out of place in the decorating world! Your set is so lovely. Thanks so much for sharing.
Hugs,
Terri
