Hello! Hope everyone is having a great week. I want to first announce the winner of the tole planter giveaway. Congratulations goes to CYNTHIA TAVARES Please email us your shipping info so your beautiful prize can be on its way! _____________________ Our party was a huge success and I cannot wait to work on a post to share all the highlights with you…..such a fun party! Today it’s all about one of our favorite subjects……blue and white. Every few weeks, we have a “virtual meeting” for all the incurable blue and white lovers out there (and there are many)! I have to say few things are as pretty as a party both big and small centered around blue and white. It is so fresh and clean, striking and dramatic all at once. Whether for a luncheon or a wedding, a blue and white them is simply magnificent. I always joke that hopefully one of my sons will get married to a girl who loves or is open to embracing blue and white and might consider a blue and white themed wedding. I know just the place to source for elegant vase and containers:) Be forewarned there is a lot of beauty to take in that just may prompt you to start planning a little fete of your own, it was such a fun post to put together……. ___________________________ What a incredible party scene, Lauren Chitwood Events LOVE. an oversized blue/white bowl to use as a elegant beverage tub….use this idea all the time Mixing tones of blue and white as well as patterns makes for a very festive look, Veranda A party we had about 3 years ago with my favorite color scheme Even just the addition of a single piece of blue and white on a table can add just that special touch, this was from a wine tasting dinner we hosted Gorgeous setting indeed, love the blue glasses, Veranda Ginger jars filled with big mounds of flowers make the most beautiful , DFW Events This picture brings back wonderful memories of a fun luncheon I threw, mixed in the vibrant pinks for a punch of color Adore this beautiful dinner party setting from Mary Carol Garrity (Nell’s Hills) Beautiful elegant party setting India Amory Love this vibrant and inviting blue and white table set by KD Hamptons An oldie but goodie, this is how an intimate blue and white dinner should look! Veranda Magazine This is from a dinner party about 3 or 4 years ago, I just added a bunch of blue and whites, a few bouquets of hydrangeas and it made for an instant tablescape Even doing smaller dinner parties, I like to add pretty touches that elevate a table This beautiful setting is from a shower I attended a few years back, it was blue and white heaven:) Whatever you do, don’t be afraid to mix patterns and colors (my own small table set for four) Isn’t this pretty! These are our beautiful floral/trellis bowls being used as stunning centerpieces for this elegant table! Another example on how to mix colors/patterns, it is like a fun experiment every time, here I used Quadrille’s Bali Hai as a tablecloth Always loved this table, the arrangments are fabulous and so dramatic!
