Welcome to The Tablescaper. Today my table is all about the SHAPES of blue, rather than the shades of blue.
As you may recall, I challenged myself to do all of my tablescapes for the month of January in BLUE. No, I’m not blue (meaning depressed), it’s just that I have a LOT of blue tableware and really thought it way high time to get it all into action.
Part of the challenge is that each one has to be unique and different.
This week’s tablescape has a contemporary flair to it with…
…angles (love how the little block pattern in the dish is repeated in the runner) and…
…square plates and..
…round goblets and candle holders.
If you peak through the mesh of the runner, you’ll see that even the pattern on pattern in the tablecloth is geometric.
True to my New Year’s resolution there is nothing new on the table (don’t know how long this will last, but I’m two tablescapes into the the New Year) .
Last Spring I purchased the cobalt dinner plates through a fantastic sale at Pfaltzgraff (Mikasa and Pfalzgraff are owned by the same company). I had seen the salad plates at Christmas Tree with the sweet little birdie several times, but I kept holding off. Really, just how many sets of blue plates can one have? Well, when when the went to clearance for around a dollar a piece, I just couldn’t resist any longer.
Aren’t these guys adorable? I think it’s neat for each place to have their own set (long ago HomeGoods purchase).
These glass bowls were purchased a number of years ago at a non-chain dollar store. Sadly, they’re no longer in business.
The napkin rings were on clearance (I think .99@) at Bed, Bath and Beyond from sometime in this past year. The napkins were a HomeGoods purchase.
The glasses were a purchase, also from HomeGoods, in the beginning of my serious collecting (probably about 7 years ago).
Hope to see you Sunday!
