Good Friday morning! When I thought up my tulipiere collection a few years ago I never anticipated they would be such a big hit. I was hemming and hawing about purchasing a very expensive pair from Holland and when they gave me my shipping cost I nearly fell out of my chair. And so my tulipeire dreaming, plotting and planning began.

Fast forward a few years and I introduced my first tulpiere, the “original” as we call it. Because of the immense success I added a soft blue pattern and solid white, then finally this year we just added green and white as well as pink and white to our growing tulipiere family (click here to see the collection) And this brings me to my post today……….

I must say I love them even more than I expected to, being a blue and white girl and all.  What I didn’t realize is how beautifully they work with blue and white. I had wanted to have a small ladies summer lunch in the garden/yard next to my hydrangeas for a few close friends. Because of Covid that will have to wait likely until 2021 but it didn’t stop me from setting the table and doing a little “dress up” with many of my favorite things. This is one of my favorite table settings of all time.

I thought I was going to use either pink or green tulipieres but when I tried both I literally could not. make up my mind……..I loved them equally so one of each stayed. I have recently discovered the virtues of cutting small clusters of hydrangea straight from my yard. They work amazingly well with the tulipieres and offer yet one more look that I love. These are super versatile and I have yet to find a flower that does not work in them. Plus, best part is that they are free and only involve having to take a few steps in my own yard….worth it’s weight in gold if you ask me.

Would love to know if you have a preference one way or another. I also included all sources at the bottom. Hope you enjoy this post as much as I enjoyed setting this up!


Seeing this table with the hydrangea hedge backdrop was as pretty as I was hoping it would be

And here is a close up of all the pretty pastel toned elements together, this is the figurine melamine

I had bought a big bolt of this fabric as a closeout, it felt so summery/garden-y to me that I knew I would find a way to use it. I envisioned tablecloths and napkins.

Anything etched makes my heart beat faster….and think the pink glasses add a nice touch

  I also used at every other setting with the green scalloped charger from Julisak

When I couldn’t make up my mind on pink or green, I used both!

Am a sucker for anything pierced so these pierced white chargers are a must!

The pink is soft and so elegant and feminine…very ethereal with the white hydrangeas

And the green is equally stunning, adds more color and pop with the pink flowers

Part of the new upcoming wicker pieces, love this little wrapped pitcher!

These pretty 100% linen green scalloped napkins are from a few years ago, still love them and may bring them back!

Do you have a favorite? Pink or green?

I just love all these colors together…they make me happy.

I said this makes me want to put on my frilliest dress and sit down to a beautiful ladies lunch. Back to reality……….that will likely have to wait until 2021:( In the meantime I will keep dreaming and definitely had such fun setting this table.

It brought all my favorite elements together and something about that hydrangea hedge backdrop really added the wow factor in my opinion. Lets ignore that it was about 98 degrees that day with a heat index well over that. So I took these pictures as fast as humanly possible as I was melting! Hope you enjoyed, thanks for stopping in.

Looks Beautiful,,,,But I hope you don’t mind me asking,,,,, what’s with all the Asian style ??

So So pretty! It would be heavenly to sit at that table for lunch! Hydrangeas really work well with any color of tulipiere!

This is so so beautiful! You achieved perfection here. I am visualizing you and your guests in pretty summer dresses and big hats sipping iced tea! Looks like a magazine shoot- brava!

Tina! This is a homerun, we will be hosting a bridal shower for my niece in April 2021 (hope things are calm then) and you have given the divine inspiration I needed. You have a flawless knack of combining colors and patterns. You and Carolyne Roehme are my favorite tastemakers.

On a sidenote I worked with Mark Hampton for years and not only was he a dear friend but an esteemed designer, I know he is looking down at this with a big thumbs up!

The Annabelles fading from white to green provide the perfect, serene setting – makes the greens in the tablecloth pop. Combining the pink and green along with the mix and match table settings is gorgeous. Love the pink glasses, the pale green napkins, just everything. I agree, among all your tablescapes, this is one of your prettiest. Anxious to see what new chargers you come up with!

Gorgeous scalloped napkins! Hope you’ll bring them back. Love the pitcher and so want the basketweave flatware! Beautiful setting.

Absolutely beautiful, , thank you for inspiring our thoughts. Would love to have a tea party with our grands But will wait until next year . Missing our girls.

Hi Charmaine: The replication of ancient Chinese motifs onto Western art, decoration, furniture, etc., is called Chinoiserie, a French word meaning all things Chinese. Chinoiserie emerged in the 1800’s and is now entrenched as a mainstay of “traditional” decorating style. When so many trends come and go, it endures to this day. Why? Many see this style as refined, serene and beautiful, and it crosses and combines seamlessly from one decorating style to another.

Hummmmmmm, could make my adult daughters a great Christmas present!!! They both LOVE hydrangeas!! I love that they are slender and guest can see across the table!
Good job! I have my dress ready!!!

Hard to choose a favorite. If pushed, the green. Love the patchwork fabric and green scalloped napkins.

Oh you big tease! Hurry up and bring on the wicker! Summer is wasting away! I love every tablescape! Thank you.

Dreamy garden party setting! Too hot right now, with triple digit temps, but by September the idea will be far more appealing to me. Thank you for the tablecloth idea. I’ll try to make one, too.

And the best part of this table setting is the set of etched stemware. We have my husband’s grandmother’s set in pale green, which goes beautifully with blue & white.

Oh my, this is beyond beautiful! I’m so sorry you were not able to hold your luncheon as this is too pretty to not share. But you gave me some great ideas I love how you mix and matched the colors and patterns, executed to perfection! I own that melamine pattern so am going to play around this weekend inspired by this!
