When I saw bluebonnet dishes at HEB, I knew I had to set a bluebonnet table. The plates and tumblers are acrylic, so were only $2 each. They'll be perfect on the patio this summer, too.
On my way home from HEB, I drove past a field with bluebonnets growing near the road, so I stopped and picked just a few. Just in case some of you have heard it's illegal to pick Texas' state flower, I double-checked, and it is not!
I hurried home to put them in water before they wilted, using a chipped enamel pitcher as a vase.
Here's a closer look.
Here's the placesetting. I first tried blue placemats, but I decided the green was a better backdrop for the bluebonnets. The bluebonnet salad plate is layered with a plain white dinner plate, and I've added a wineglass with the bluebonnet tumbler. Silver seemed a bit much with acrylic dishes, so I went with our everyday stainless, Towle Beaded Antique.
Here's the whole table, set in the breakfast area. Notice anything different?
Here are a few more photos. Bluebonnet season is all-too-brief, but it's delightful time to for a trip through the hill country!
Thank you for visiting my table this week! I hope you will leave a comment before you leave to visit all the wonderful tablescapes at Susan's Between Naps on the Porch!
