Fresh Blue and Yellow Tablescape

As soon as the blue and yellow table topper was done, I was charged up to do a pretty table with it. The colors are so perfect for the warmer days with lots of sunshine. Since I don’t have a lot of blue in tablescape stuff, doing this table will be a bit of a challenge using only what I already have. It has been ages since I have been rummaging at the thrift store.

Yellow chargers found at the thrift store a couple of years ago are topped with white everyday dinner plates, and my yellow print salad plates. I love these yellow print plates. I used to have six, but one got broken and I haven’t been able to find a replacement. The Replacements China place in Greensboro doesn’t have any, and neither has ebay. But, I keep checking regularly.

Continuing with the setting, I put yellow napkins in little flower pot rings, and fanned the top of the napkin like a fleur-de-lis. Everyday flatware and individual salt and pepper shakers are added.

Crystal drink glasses complete the settings.

Now for the centerpiece, I did have some blue silk daisies so those went into my yellow ceramic basket along with white and yellow flowers.

It just needs a little something more.

I started looking around in the stash, and remembered my Mason Jar candles. Pulling those out, I changed out the items in the bottom. Some yellow tulle and a blue silk daisy coordinates with the centerpiece nicely.

I did two, one for each side of the basket.

Perfect for a grilled meal. We had burgers for the grill, and I planned a nice roast in the slow cooker for the rainy day forecast for the next day. It occurred to me that it might be good to start the roast on the grill while it was fired up, then finish it in the slow cooker. My Sweet Babboo put it on the grill for about 20 minutes total. Then we refrigerated it overnight and it slow cooked for 6 hours the next day. Oh, yum!! Tender and juicy with a smoky grilled flavor.

Back to the table, I did set four place settings, even though I don’t anticipate having guests for this one. The table just looks better with four. I’d need more of a centerpiece if I only had two settings.

So there we are, a bright and sunny table for these warmer spring days. Are you enjoying some nice weather and a pretty table for meals?

    Carole, so pretty! Your table topper is a great underpinning for the rest of the tableware. Love those yellow/white salads. So sad you can’t find a 6th one yet! I totally get your thought process in the need to fill the table with the added mason jar candles. Just right!

    What a happy looking table. Can’t help but smile, Yellow is my favorite color, it always brings sunshine.

  3. Very pretty indeed. The blue and yellow are so fresh looking! I will be setting mine today with my bright batik placemats and table runner. The exciting menu is burgers and hot dogs for the grandkids today. How big is your blue and yellow topper?

  4. That is so pretty, Carole! Definitely perfect for this time of year! I love the yellow and white plates -it’s too bad you can’t find a replacement for the broken one. My table right now has a runner I made from fabric purchased in Charleston during our trip there in 2017. Good memories!

    Gorgeous setting…I have some yellow and blue placemats…need to find and put out on our table! Yellow seems to be the color for 2021, doesn’t it!

    I’m always amazed at what you can pull out of your thrift buying cupboards! I love what you have done with all of your yellows. The only thing I would look for now might be a set of salad plates in blue.

    Such a pretty table setting. Just wants to make you smile! I am curious about the mason jar candles. What is holding the candle on the top?

  8. Oh what an inspiration…… The table looks beautiful…… You have such pretty things and once one meal is done then remove all that and it’s already set for the next one lol……
    We had as lamb roast this weekend…….

  9. So pretty Carole and summer perfection with bright yellows and bright blues! I love you idea about cooking the roast on the grill for that smokey flavor and then tossing it in a slow cooker for an easy dinner!

  10. That’s such a cheerful topper and table, anyone would feel uplifted just sitting there — forget the fabulous food! The nice thing about that combo is that either color (or white) works so well with it. I didn’t miss the blue in the dinnerware because it was so beautifully tied in with the flowers and accessories! Big smiles!
