Outdoor Table Scape

I love joining in at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.  This week Susan has a lovely beach table on the porch.  Check out all the other links as well.

While I had the table I posted about here in the front yard, I decided to do a tablescape with the newest set of china Husband and I bought at an estate sale two weeks ago.  They were extremely dusty and just piled in a box.  However, after a hand wash, they were ready to go. I love the delicate blues and pinks. The name on the back is "Cannes." There is a complete set for six but several extra plates and bowls.

Please ignore the bits of my neighbor's car.  Its hard to take long shots without getting one or two cars in the photos. Oh, and the garbage cans. Ick, Sorry.

The blue napkins are a recent purchase from an estate sale as well.

The glasses are my everyday glasses from Target, about seven years old, along with the napkin rings.
The flatware is my Community stainless from Oneida, wedding gift that we use every day.
Thank you for stopping by.

Wow, very pretty. I like the idea of a table set up pretty in the back yard, a very nice spot for some tea.

Funny....I didn't even notice the cars in the background or the rubbish cans until you mentioned them! I was so busy looking at that rockin' table & chairs!!! They are gorgeous!!! I love the sort of weathered look about them. Beautiful china, as well. Very delicate look. Very nice set up!

Lovely table, setting and post. Thank you for sharing! DH and I have been married 28 years and this was our wedding 'china' since we didn't feel right about asking our family to purchase expensive dishes. Ours has seen many holiday meals since then and I was tickled to see you using it in the BNOTP linky. It also goes nicely with lavendar and robin's egg blue...someone as creative as you will have great fun with it!
