I have a New Year's goal of posting a tablescape once a month but I was having trouble being inspired with all the nasty winter weather Missouri has had lately. Last week, several bloggers I visited used blue or aqua in their tables and it got me thinking....
My mother-in-law and I attended a local auction before Christmas and we did quite well. Part of our haul included several mismatched, but lovely dishes and glassware. I decided to use a couple of things from that day.
These soup bowls are quite delicate. They seemed well used but
still very pretty.
I was so surprised when I visited Janet at Rosemary and Thyme and saw she had chosen the same pattern to highlight this week!! She has the plates, cups and saucers. I just have these four bowls.
The bowls' pattern hints of spring but the tablecloth brings me back to reality ... wintry January.
The other acquisition I'm using from that pre-Christmas auction are these pretty little wine or cordial glasses.
They are quite delicate and thin. Like many auction items, there were five in this set instead of six.
For the center of the table, I decided to use a simple pitcher of flowers on an old silver tray. We received the tray as a wedding gift many years ago. I love how they have come back in style!
After braving 10 inches of snow and subzero temperatures last week, I find myself dreaming of my summer flowers and gardens.
But for now, I'll have to settle for the cheery blooms I find on my dishes!
I hope you're staying warm and cozy!
