The blue and white bunting is a recent purchase from a vintage store in Eastern Washington. It’s double the size you see. I folded it in half to hang in this spot.

A cousin of mine was in Washington State and we invited her and her husband for dinner. The table was set with our Aunt Anna’s Blue Danube tablecloth and napkins. I added pewter chargers with a combination of blue plates since I don’t have 6 Blue Danube dinner plates. I used the Blue Danube tea pot, tea cup, and sugar bowl for vessels to hold my waning white hydrangeas. We enjoyed tri-tip, a favorite Russian salad of ours called vinaigrette and barbecued beans. We had a cucumber/tomato salsa for an appetizer and for dessert we had my Creamy Cheesecake. We were so engaged in conversation and catching up that we forgot to take any photos of the people who enjoyed all of this! Oye.

Linking up to Mosaic Monday with Maggie at Normandy Life.

We had a good weekend and are ready for a new week. There was an estate sale at my neighbor Pat’s home and I bought something to remember her by. I’ll share a photo soon of Pat’s Tea Trolley.

  1. What a pretty Table Ellen. The tablecloth is a perfect match. I’ve always been drawn to blue and white and I especially like your pewter chargers. I’d love a set of those. Did you find them at Goodwill? You have a good eye for spotting lovely things there.

  2. What a gorgeous table setting you have shared! Blue and white china is beautiful and I love it.
    Those blue plates on the wall also captured my eyes. Happy new week!

  3. You set a beautiful table! It looks so fresh with the white, blue, and pale green of the hydrangea. It is reading green to my eye, but perhaps it is more white. Whatever, it is lovely.

  4. What a beautiful table setting. I love almost anything blue and white. How special to have your aunt’s dishes. The meal sounds delicious, and I can imagine the conversation flowing so well that there’s no thought of photos.
