I hope you all had a lovely weekend -we finished off our weekend last night with friends over for a barbeque.
It was a lovely relaxing night - not too hot, nice food, icy cold champagne and lots of laughs - just how you want it to be!
Instead of my usual pink table last night I decided to use some of my blue and white china - these two cute little jugs were part of my centrepiece. The small jug on the left is from Crabtree and Evelyn and the pretty floral china is called Calico. Blue and white always looks so fresh - don't you think??
I started off with a crisp white cloth then used my new silver chargers, my everyday white china then topped it off with a small plate from the calico range. The napkins are from Ikea - I really love the texture of these!
Just as I was standing back admiring my work Mr FH walked in and declared "It is only a barbeque!"
Whoops! Perhaps the chargers were just a little over the top!! I have had these cute placemats for ages so decided to use these instead - much more relaxed (still not the paper plates which Mr FH thought we should use though!!)
Now something for the table centre.. no flowers around at the moment as it's been so hot so what do I use??? I have two of these cute little bowls (DNo 1 brought these back from Turkey for me when she was living in London) so thought they would look nice with tealights in them - anything looks good in candlelight I think!
The large oval platter seemed to be the ideal starter for my table centre. I just took a few blue and white jugs I had on the dresser and popped them on the platter, next I added tealights to them. The effect was lovely but I was a bit concerned the jugs might crack so I placed white pebbles in the jugs then added the candles.
I was so happy with the end result.
I can't believe how good my flatware looks now that I have polished it all up!!
See, I told you anything looks good in candlelight!!
