Blue and White Dining, Always A Favorite!

Welcome to the 788th Tablescape Thursday! I’m on my way back home today after a fun visit with family. I can’t believe it’s already November, fall is passing by so quickly! After a month of Halloween tables, it’s definitely time for something completely different. Blue and white is one of my favorite combinations and Norma set the prettiest blue and white table recently when she had friends over for dinner.

Blue and White Luncheon Table Setting


The deep blue tablecloth creates such a dramatic backdrop for this elegant setting. The white needlework overlay in the center of the table is handmade, a wonderful find Norma made in a local thrift/charity shop. I wonder if it’s crocheted?

Norma said, “The blue and white plates are by Wood and Sons, an English company. The design is called, Buddha.”

Wood and Sons, Buddha Dinnerware


Here’s a closer view of the pattern.

  2. What a beautiful table! And the plates are fascinating. Is the woman spinning? I love the stories on china. Thanks so much to you and Norma! And thanks for hosting, as always. Hope you have a great trip home!

  3. OH! I LOVE blue and white china patterns! I used it for years in my kitchen, first Finlandia then Blue Danube. I still miss it and Norma’s gorgeous table scape is tempting me!!!!! Fantastic way to use a smaller lace piece over a color table cloth, I WILL be using that idea!!!!!

  4. Norma sets a beautiful table. I love the white cloth.

  5. Norma. I, too, love all things blue and white. I also love the border of those plates. Thanks for sharing with us.

  6. Susan, thanks for sharing Norma’s beautiful blue and white table. I LOVE the white cloth she found at a charity thrift shop! It really sets off her table.

  7. Beautiful!! I absolutely adore blue and white. Many of my tables are in this color scheme.
    I know about it being November already. Once again we go from air conditioning to furnace.
