Blue + White + Yellow

Since it was so hot when I set up the blue and white tablescape for last week's Tablescape Thursday, I decided to get a little more mileage out of it by adding a new color to the mix.



I used the same tablecloth, dinner plates, silver, and glasses, but added yellow spider mums to the cobalt blue bottles and lemons to the blue footed dish.


Yellow napkins edged with orange, plus salad plates and salt and pepper shakers from my everyday dishes, Mikasa Windsor Park, added more color.


I've had these dishes for at least twelve years, but I still love the cheerful pattern and colors.


Here's another view of the table.


Lemons make such an easy splash of color!


Stay cool, y'all!


Thanks for stopping by, and don't forget to check out all the other tablescapes at Susan's Between Naps on the Porch!
