Guests coming for luncheon and on a sunny winter day what better than paperwhites almost blooming in a blue and white vase, the table set with blue and white china. I have a love affair with blue and white whether it is new blue and white from Hobby Lobby or ancient blue and white from China or Japan.
And of course, I also have a love affair with blue and white dishes -- because they go withe verything! And I love to mix Dutch, English and Asian pieces all on the same table.
To complete the centerpiece, two birds "flew" in. Not blue and white but just the added touch needed to finish off the table.
I've always felt that the food is important for a meal but the table setting is to. As food is pleasing to the stomach so should the table be pleasing to the eye.
