Blue Breakfast Tablescape

My inspiration for this week's table is the blue hydrangea plant that 
my friend Cathy brought to the Easter celebration.
I love blue hydrangeas,
but they do not love South Florida gardens. They are a treat for us at Easter. 
I started with a Blue Paisley tablesquare from Longaberger.
I layered my cobalt blue glass chargers and used
the Villeroy & Boch dishes in the Vieux Luxembourg pattern.
Added a pleated Blue Paisley Longaberger napkin tucked into
a cornflower blue Longaberger pottery napkin ring.
The cobalt blue goblets are from Walmart.
V&B salt and pepper.
 Blue and white is a favorite.
This V&B pattern is timeless. It was commissioned for Louis XV in 1745.
The V&B tea set
A three piece jam/condiment set was a gift from
 friends visiting us from Germany, Rita and Franz.
 The V&B cache' pot holds the plant.
The breakfast area.
V&B candlesticks with a white berry bobeche. 
Tonights treat with our steak is artichokes with garlic lemon butter!
So easy to make. Recipe HERE.

Have a good day!


  1. Your blue and white is just gorgeous. I think it is such a pretty combination. What a fun table to sit down to.

  2. I loved seeing all your blue and white! Everything looks great...even that artichoke! I don't think I have ever cooked one. Looks interesting, though!

    Thanks for the garlic lemon butter recipe! I am SO making some!

  3. I loved that pattern myself. It's so delicate and classic. Your table setting showed it off to it's finest. A great way to start the day.

  4. That V&B pattern is so deinty sweet, and classic and at the same token, so elegant, I really love it! I would love to have breakfast on a table like you have designed for today. The jam-condiment present from your friends really add a special touch for your china. Love it!
