Tablescape Blue and White

Hello !

Here I am again with a tablescape and realize that I still need more stuff…..I don’t own any white napkins – so notice there are NO Napkins ! Doesn’t matter because there is No Food …LOL ! Also I really wanted some tea light candles but….I don’t have votives (the ones I have were too big) Take a gander and give me your comments and I very much welcome tips (as I am still learning at this and I love to learn ! )


016 I decided that I should decorate the desk in the dining area to bring it all together. Notice my blank walls – this room was part of a remodel and my hubby has yet to put in some baseboard – so the desk is out of place, therefore I can not hang pictures yet….it is driving me insane ! Does anyone know how I can move a million pound desk by myself ?? I am getting tired of waiting……














Here is the low down:

Spode dinner dishes – replicas of course…from Ross $5.99 each

Bamboo flatware from Cambridge purchased at Marshalls $14.99

Blue water glasses from Walmart 99 cents

Blue stemware from the dollar store

Gibson white china from Big Lots

Infamous target salt and pepper shaker birds

Center items all from Ross

Tablecloth our local market King Soopers – it is fabric and it was an after Easter sale for $5.99 – I love the details…

List to Buy:


Candle/votive holders\

I think it is lovely! I pretend to set my table too, no one really came over for coffee and chocolates, except me! ha ha!

Wow Kammy, you did an awesome job! Love the blue and white and the tablecloth is so pretty! I don't have any glasses on my tablescape today! I think we all "need" more stuff sometimes!

Melissa Marie said...

The blue and white is such a classic combination... so classy. Love the daisy accent with it. Great job! :)

You know I just noticed, I don't have any white napkins either. lol I love, love, love the tablesetting. The blue and white dishes are so pretty and I have been trying to collect some of these. So far only 4 plates, but I'm on the hunt. Your stemware is also lovely. You did a wonderful job and I love it all. Hugs, Marty

Be a sweetie,

Such a pretty table. I'm thinking about that same flatwear. Love the way it looks with just about anything.

susan said...

I think you are a FAST learner and a thrifty one. Your table is elegant, especially the cutwork tablecloth!

Katy said...

Kammy, You did an absolutely fabulous job pulling together a great tablescape! Your dishware is just lovely and there really isn't anything lacking on the table. You would definately 'need' votives if your home didn't have electricity! But I think you'll be fine as it is. Adorable tablescape! Thanks for sharing!

My weakness is blue and white dishes of any kind. You did a great job and I wouldn't change a have a great eye for many beautiful pieces you put together so well! Miss Bloomers

Michelle said...

Kammy, I love "the low down"!!! I love the combination of the blues/patterns! I think you're doing great!

Chandy said...

Kammy, that is a beautiful table, with or with napkins or votives. The potential for "additions" are endless.

Fifi Flowers said...

Blue and white is sooo pretty together!

Mary said...

Oh I love your blue and white setting! So fresh and pretty. I have some of those Spode plates in red/white, as my dining room is a sort of cranberry color... but I long for a blue and white room! :)

Robin said...

I love blue and white. I have more blue and white than anything else. But I don't have those blue paisley plates. ;-) Lovely.....

Have a beautiful day.

Candy said...

Love the blues. You have some really pretty pieces for sure.

Thanks for sharing,

Myrna said...

Ahhh--you can never go wrong with blue and white! Beautiful tablescape!

Christi @ A Southern Life said...

That is funny. I have white napkins and tablecloths running out my ears but most of my china is creamy so they don't match! Love the blue and white. They are so classic.

Kammy, The blue and whites are so pretty. I used to own a set years ago, but got into one of those "simplify, less is more" moods and sold it at a yard sale. Had I known tablescapes would be in my future, I would have held on to them! Everything is lovely, but I know what you mean about napkins. I just bought a set of 12 red ones from a thrift shop yesterday in anticipation for Christmas! Have a great day!!

Barb~Bella Vista said...

Hi Kammy, I love your and white is a particular favorite of mine. Lovely!


Joyce said...

Crisp and clean and fun to view. Thanks for sharing this with me and by the way your tablecloth is so pretty. Enjoy your meal.

Kathleen said...

Oh you will get there..First it is one set of white napkins then another..and on it goes. Then your will need dh to build you more closets!
I just added 2 cabinets last week..trying to organize my things! A gal I know actually has a spread sheet to keep track!
GReat idea, but I don't know how to do one..
Love your blue and all looks so nice and crisp!
