Savoring Spain

No, I'm not tired of having meals alfresco either!



A nice cool blue against a pristine white is what I'm in the mood for.


That means my "Asiatic Pheasant" blue transferware English china by Johnson Bros..

A crochet lace underskirt overlaid with white linen, and a linen and lace napkin layered as a place mat.

The laces suggest the traditional curtains of Spanish windows.
A cold and delicious gazpacho is to be served from my floral Bavarian tureen.


The glasses from Williams-Sonoma give a "Salute!" to Italy.

Blue and white works well with the spicy gazpacho reds.


Spiked flower frogs are good for place cards, menus, or favors.

The side table with its bright blue runner livens it all up and complements the red terra cotta serving dish.


Margaritas anyone?

Here's wishing you a fabulous holiday week-end!

Ciao! for now! Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Your table is so pretty! I just love your crocheted tablecloth! I found a gorgeous vintage one a few years ago at a garage sale for only $5! You've inspired me to get it out again. One of my favorite parts of summer is dining al fresco!
