Denim Floral Tablescape

Susan at Between Naps on the Porch hosts Tablescape Thursday. Click on the link to see other tablescapes.

Everything you see here, except for the flatware, was purchased at thrift stores. I started with a pale yellow tablecloth. The china pattern is Denim Floral by American Atelier which has blue and white floral and gingham.

The photo above shows the table set with nice big soup bowls on the dinner plates.
The photo below show a salad plate on the dinner plate. Sorry for the glare. I wasn't even using flash.


Cobalt blue votives, match the blue goblets.




Look how those napkins match the floral trim on the china.
