Timeless Blue and White Tablescape Two Ways

Build on a classic color combination of blue and white to achieve two dynamic looks.

 

 THE INSPIRATION

With a border of cobalt foliage, this hand-decorated Arbor plate by Caskata captures the beauty of blue and white in a decidedly summer motif. Arbor BLU Dinner Plate; Caskata.

 

ELEGANT OPTIONS


Stay true to the beloved palette, but update with modern stylings. Start with a solid blue tablecloth for a dramatic backdrop. Then pair the dinner plate with a white charger featuring a delightfully feminine shape. To finish the au courant setting, add a songbird salad plate, a delicate napkin, and a creamy, dreamy centerpiece. Dinner Plate and Birds Salad/Dessert Plate in Arbor BLU; Caskata.

Bella Bianca Filigree Charger by Arte Italica, Wisteria Ice General Purpose Goblet by William Yeoward, and Laurier by Rosenthal Sambonet Flatware; Bromberg’s.

 

CASUAL POSSIBILITIES

Sunshine shades are a natural complement to clear-sky blue, and together they make a cheery scene that suits breakfast or brunch. Introduce the happy hue with a solid napkin and a bowl painted with a lemon motif. A woven mat edged in blue and a gingham ribbon napkin ring bring all the elements together.
