Blue is my favorite color!

I found this beautiful blue flowered china at a thrift store right before Christmas- couldn't resist it- I really only buy what I need for the tablescapes- I don't do big dinners anymore now that the kiddos are moved out- just not enough room for all of us here anymore. Tablescaping is my way of having "company" now! I found the hurricane type candleholders 80% off today at Michael's- don't tell anyone they are for Christmas! The runner is just a length of fabric I found at a thrift store. The silver coffee pot I found at SA for $2.99 and the new addition is the silverware- I bought off ebay, including the silver box for $18.00 plus shipping- I did a little research and the pattern is Oneida 1921 Grosvenor- cool, huh? I am delighted with it. Hope you enjoy the tablescape- I love it! Check out some really beautiful tablescapes at www.betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com for "Tablescape Thursday"! So much fun!

Blue roses are so romantic. It was in Beauty and the Beast that he grew her the impossible blue rose. Your table is just lovely.

This is so pretty -- I wonder if your thrift china is the same as my eBay china this week. I think it looks lovely on both of our tables!

Very pretty! The hurricane candle holders are lovely as are the crystal candlesticks! Don't you love finding wonderful things at the T.S. for next to nothing! And isn't setting the table for "pretend" company so much fun?!!
