Blue and White – I never get tired of the combination. And when it comes with birds, happiness follows.

The rich shades of blue and turquoise the Pier 1 plates is echoed in the cheerful tablecloth from Homegoods. It’s a little busier than my typical tablescape, so I stuck with plain white napkins and anchored the patterned salad plates on simple navy Pacifica dinner plates from Williams Sonoma.

The salad plates are a very nice size, with a discreet gold edging.  The stylized birds are enchanting, reminding me a bit of Pennsylvania Dutch emblems.

Antique turquoise Venetian Glass rounded out the table alongside delicate Annabelle Hydrangea.

The flatware is Hammered from World Market.

My little blue bird open salt was chirping to be included.


What a gorgeous summer it has been!  Here’s hoping the warm weather continues for a bit longer. I’m enjoying the garden so much, with its abundant blooms and fragrant scents. It makes setting tables a whole lot easier, and life a great deal more enjoyable.
