Blue on Blue

‘Cobalt is a divine colour and there is nothing so beautiful for putting atmosphere around things…"
Vincent van Gogh

So many of you commented on my Lunch on the Porch last week that I thought I would share another tea outside while the weather is still so delightful.

I'd be very happy for you to join me today.

I think this is completely lovely, and I also agree with Vincent Van Gogh.

I love that tablecloth the best. I'm so drawn to things like that.

Hello there lovely lady,

I simply adore blue and white as well, in fact blue is my favorite color. Indeed what a divine color cobalt blue is!

Your pretty outdoor in the garden, tea vignette is just as exquisite with all of those patterns and lovely shades of blues amongst the white back grounds of your china and tablecloth.., Love this!

Thanks so much for joining us for tea dear lady; we always love having you join us for our weekly, Tuesday Teas fun!

Hugs, Wanda Lee

A blue and white table setting against your green grass, this is stunning. I like the tea pot and only have a few small cobalt glass pieces myself but the colour is rich for an accent.

I am so glad you are still able to enjoy time outdoors! It has turned cold and blustery here in the Kansas City area, so we are in for the winter now! :-( Your blue & white table is beautiful. I agree with Van Gogh! I actually considered using blue & white for one of our Thanksgiving tables this year, but other ideas took over. Oh, well...it's a classic, so maybe next year! Have a wonderful weekend, and thank you for stopping by my place earlier! Take care!

Blue and white-sweet and cozy and romantic and elegant! These two colors really lend themselves to mixing patterns, as you have done here. Just beautiful!
