I love designing tablescapes. I started back in September 2010 and I now design tablescapes to share on my blog as well as on "Between Naps on the Porch" for Tablescape Thursdays.

My passion for designing tablescapes has sent me out on a search to buy more dishes that I can share every week.

I also enjoy making my own napkins to go with my different dishes and I love to mix and match some of my beautiful dishes.

~~~Blue Willow Tablescapes~~~



I started with my Blue Willow China. I just
purchased the creamer, sugar bowl, and coffee pot
for Christmas !!!

This is my eight cup coffee pot. I just love it. ~~~
I purchased this blue vase from Stein Mart~~
at 50% off. This is a set of four that consists
of one big one and three small ones!
I filled the large vase with flowers from
 the Kroger food store ~~~$3.50 nice.
I made the napkins for this Tablescapes. ~~~
I hope you all come back!!!
Please take a moment to comment and thank you so
much!

Looks awesome as always.
Have the same dishes --- mine are Homer Laughlin made in USA.
I need to have a dinner party for adults to use all my dishes.

Blue Willow is so classic. I've always enjoyed settings using it. Blue and white really speaks to me. Beautiful job Diane.

Just beautiful! I have some antique Buffalo Pottery Blue Willow, mostly it's hanging on the walls! I love the napkins that you made also, you're so talented!

Your Blue Willow collection is lovely. I get nostalgic when I see it -- I think my mother had some and whatever happened to it? I love your new coffee pot -- just a beautiful table. Joni

So crisp and elegant! This tablescape is especially lovely to me, Diane. I've loved Blue Willow ever since I read the children's book by the same name when I was a little girl. We have a huge set of Blue Willow, mostly Churchill produced, collected from our grocery store when they did dinnerware promotions. We use it every day, and I love adding other blue and white china patterns to vary it in my tablescapes. My blue and white china affection even extended to inspiration for the color-scheme of our guest room, and I have some of the plates hanging on the walls.

Now that I've put the Spode Christmas Tree away for another year, our Blue Willow is back in the kitchen cabinet where it lives most of the time. My husband and I discovered years ago that we both live well with blue. Your tablescape is so pretty; the teapot is a jewel. Everything works together to perfection...great job! Thank you for sharing your marvelous design. Cherry Kay

Oh, I just love this! Blue Willow is such a classic, lovely pattern. It always catches my eye. Your napkins are of course, perfect! Your vases are so pretty and I especially love the teapot. Sigh... I could spend hours around this table. My computer is giving me fits this morning. I hope I didn't send this comment more than once! :)

Traci said...

So pretty!! Love the Blue Willow dishes. My mom has them & has just decided to start using them as her everyday dishes.

Donnie said...

That is my dish set up north. I just love the Blue Willow. Reminds me of Aunt Bea's kitchen on Andy Griffith show.

Marigene said...

What a pretty Blue Willow table -- love your new coffee pot and blue vase too!

Tess said...

Diane...

Your table is so beautiful!! I don't have much in the way of blue tableware, but this is just stunning. The napkins are perfect with the china..all crisp and cool. But the silver flatware is what always catches my eye and this pattern is gorgeous!!!! The pink flowers are a great bit of contrast.

Thank you for stopping by my blog and for your kind comments. Now I am going to mosey on through your previous tablescape posts!

Thank you!

Tess

Very beautiful table with the Blue Willow set. I just love it.
The vase with the pink flowers is one of my favorite.....You know Diane, blue is my color. All the best to you, happy Tablescaping!
:)

Rettabug said...

How PRETTY! I'm green with envy over your lovely dining room!!
The Blue Willow is such a classic...always in style. My DD's MIL has a huge set of it & I just purchased a tea set to be able to do a table for 4. I figured my DGD might inherit her other grandma's dishes & she could also use my set with them someday.
~~making a note to pick up some pale blue candles~~

Beautifully done, Diane!
