Blue and Red Tablescape

Pat found the inspiration dinner plates for this week's table on the top shelf - way in the back - of my cupboard. She climbed the ladder, pulled them out, and within ten minutes, had the table done. (Me? I just watched.....I never could figure out what to do with them - nothing ever looked good, so the dishes always sat there.)

Pat chose blue "Reflections" glassware by Imperial Glass Company

The stainless steel Dungeness napkin ring holds a bright red hand-made napkin

This charming figurine is Normal Rockwell's "Captain" by Gorham taken from the August 19,1922 Saturday Evening Post cover

Nautical looking vase and votive holders are from Michael's

  1. I love those plates! This turned out so great. Love the glasses and the little centerpiece is so cute.

  2. Great dishes are easy to work with! Love the red accents. The glassware is stunning too. Love this. xo marlis

  3. I like how the plates look a little wavy - it adds to your nautical look. I'm glad you pulled them out of the back of your cupboard for us!

  4. This is delightful!
