Hi there, hope this finds you well an that everyone is having a good week. We may get a little snow today, but with three family members up in the air today flying to various places I hope it will not impact travel! A little snow sounds kind of nice, I cannot lie:) As much as I love fall I have grown to dislike winter, it was one thing when the kids were young and we would go skiing on weekends, but as those days have passed I long for spring, summer and fall. One of my favorite things to do in the warmer months is set an alfresco table for dinner or lunch. So I did a version of bringing an alfresco table indoors:) As I shared with you last week, I got in part of my new wicker/basket weave line of products and it was love at first sight. I had to immediately set a table and just love how it looks against the crispness of the blue and white. I really like the way the texture of the pieces works against the porcelains. A friend is coming in from out of town for lunch next week and I decided to set the table a little early….why not! So here is what I came up with. Really loving the new flatware and the oversized chunky hurricanes (shown without glass but they come with the glass inserts). All basket weave items shown are online (click here to see) except the hurricanes which should be here within about 10 days to 2 weeks. Will announce here when they (and many other pieces) arrive! So take a look at the table (and just imagine with food lol)……… ________________________________________________________ A FEW OF THE RESOURCES SHOWN- Glasses- part of a line I used to carry Handblocked placemats- from my shop (click here) Basketweave flatware- from my shop (click here) Scalloped chargers from Juliska Pagoda monogrammed napkins- click here Blue and white chinoiserie plates- have had a long time (good news alert- I am looking to put them in production as many have commented on them and awaiting my samples) All large blue and white serving pieces- from my shop Blue and white domed platter Mottahedeh All basketweave piece from my shop (click here) Pug fabric on chairs- Lee Jofa ___________________________________________ Ahhh just love this table, it reminds me of springy days ahead when somehow my table setting ambitions really go into overdrive:) In case this post is giving you a case of “blueandwhite-itis”, or you have had your eye on any of our fabulous blue and white pieces, especially now that all of our newest arrivals are on line here’s a little offer to sweeten the deal:) With any purchase receive this beautiful pencil/brush/utensil holder!
