Hi fellow bloggers I am joining Kathleen @ Cuisine Kathleen in doing a cobalt blue and white tablescape.
She recently did a table and asked us to do a bird theme table. It seems I did them in reverse order.
I too love the pops of color the blue brings out. For years I have collected(oh no not another collection?) little pieces of cobalt blue but never doing anything with them together until now. I was at my local IKEA store and they had cobalt blue candles.They have such a variety of candle colors.
Then my idea for a table started coming together. There are only two of us so I don't need to buy six or eight or even four of anything.
So when shopping at thrift stores or antique stores I always look out for two pieces with cobalt on them.
Like pretty bowls and wine goblets. These cute little cake plates I made for a catering event(I had to make 35 little individual mini cupcake stands)
The little bottles came with scented oils in them, the tablecloth was five yards of fabric from Walmart for $.50 clearance a yard.
I love the cobalt dark marbles like a girls jewelry accessory.
Found the blue coffee and creamer at an antique shop that was closing
these little blue pieces to the left of the bowl have been sitting in a shadow box for years(shop your house first for little add ons)
IKEA chargers boy are these things versatile
I made distressed candle holders that someone shared in Blog land I forget who but thank you for the tip.
let's light these candles and have a real dinner.
