Blue and White Toile

 I decided to create this tablescape because of these flowers. Our German neighbors gave them to me when I invited them for dinner 2 evenings ago. I thought I better use them on a table setting before they start to wither. Aren't they pretty? Thanks, Chris and Natascha! I love them!

I started with a blue and white toile tablecloth. I purchased this a long time ago from a flea market, on the French side of St. Maarten in the Virgin Islands, many years ago.
This tablescape is also extra special for me because 2 of my precious grandkids helped me create it. They even helped me decide which napkins and flatware to use.
I used some white wooden plate chargers from Pier One, Pfaltzgraff white dinner plates in "Confetti" pattern and topped them with blue and white toile salad plates, pattern name "Blue Toile" by Home Essentials and Beyond, which I bought a long time ago from Ross. I think this is the first time I ever used them. Funny but because of the move, some of my stored plates have resurfaced.

I love this toile patterned pitcher/vase. I bought it from Homegoods here in Cape Coral, maybe last year. Have I told you we are only a 4 minute drive away from that favorite store of mine? My daughter and hubby joke about it that I can only find places in proximity to Homegoods, lol.
Fleur de Lis salt and pepper shakers.
The little tulips are made out of clay. I bought them from Plant City when we went to a Strawberry Festival.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I always enjoy your visits. I also appreciated all the hostesses throwing there fun parties. Please visit them too and be inspired.

You have help from two cuties. What is the pattern on your blue and white china and table cloth? They all seem related in an attractive way.


Those little helpers are the best Chris!
Love all your white and blue, specially the pretty flowers and the vase pitcher, I think. The toile topper is gorgeous!

So pretty! Blue and white is so wonderful all year round but in the summer it is just a breath of fresh, cool air. I like the tablecloth so much. Looks like your helpers have learned a lot from their grandmother. Lovely table!

Beautifully done Christine! Especially nice since the grandkids helped! What a nice floral arrangement from the neighbors- I'm sure they enjoyed dining with you! It's nice to see how some of your furniture fit in so well in your Florida home. Are you fully moved out from Natchez?
