Red, White, and Blue Transferware Tablescape

Hi bloggy friends! 
With Memorial Day coming up this weekend I thought I would try  
putting together a tablescape with a bit of a patriotic flair to it.
Most of the pieces I have used in other displays previously...
but being the thrifty girl that I am,
it's always fun for me to try and see if  I can come up with
an entirely different look and feel.
just by changing a few things like the tablecloth,
or the combination of dishes and accessories.

The cobalt blue glasses are a new recent T/S find.
Both toile pitchers were bargains from Ross Stores.

This tablecloth which is actually fabric from my stash 
really pulls the color scheme together.

The white ceramic napkin rings are also a recent T/S find too!
The transferware plates as well as the creamer and sugar bowl  
  by Royal Warwick china /"Lochs of Scotland" were given to me
by my dear MIL.
*****
Hope you all have a fantastic Holiday weekend! 
We will probably BBQ and hangout around the poolside.


In closing... I'd just like to pay tribute to those who have served
our country and to those that also made the ultimate sacrifice in doing so. 
May God bless them and their families as well...


Big hugs to you all!
Sherri:)

This a stunning "patriotic" tablescape, I just love it! I love the transferware china and all the pieces that go with it. The pretty salmon plate goes so well with it all. The pitcher you used for the centerpiece is beautiful and the tablecloth pulls it all together. Wonderful! I'm also at TT at BNOTP.
