Blue and green should never be seen!!

I recently found these pretty dinner plates for $2 each. They were also available in red/green combination but I liked the navy/green ones best. The salad plates were $2 each also but the bowls were $5.50 so needless to say I didn't buy them. I'll keep an eye out as they might be reduced later.

I started with a piece of pale green linen-like fabric and navy napkins. 

I couldn't find any candle sticks then suddenly remembered all my white ones are at the beach house so I had to make some little holders out of a small white bowl and a napkin ring to hold the candle up. I used scrapbooking papers to add more navy and green color to the table.

These pale green bowls matched well - they are bigger than I really liked but they will be ok for now(until I get the matching ones on sale!!).

I have such a lot of blue and white china I just borrowed the lovely patterned balls to add to the table. 


For the centre of the table I used a cake stand on a large blue and white platter and topped that with a cute cream and green birdhouse.

My favourite green stemware was perfect. I have had these for years and years and still really love them. It's so good when you buy something like that, don't you think?

 Just another angle!!

Layers of blue and green.....

Tea things ready and waiting at the end of the table. I've placed this cute teapot on a stand with more blue and white china plates.

A bird's eye view of the table.


(I have been having a few problems with Blogger so I hope today things a presented a little better than last week!!)

Suzy, blue and green are my two favorite colors! I think they look great together! Whoever made up that old decorating rule didn't know what they were talking about. :-) Your new plates are wonderful!!

Blogger seems to gives us grief from time to time and today I'm having problems with many of the blogs opening but with persistence I am able to see your post.
Your blue and white tea table is pretty, I like the teapot on the stand and the cute birdhouse in the centre of the table.
