I really do not like the blue one at all (at least not on me). I bought it only after trying on a few hundred or so (it seemed) and I was running out of time to find something to wear to my Father-in-laws 70th birthday party. Something that would hide my flab! I was heavier then than I am now, and even though I'm not at all crazy about this dress it still hangs in my closet. Now I know why! I would need it for a future tablescape! So, I wadded, I scrunched, I stretched...the dress that is. I then added another dress with a gorgeous 6" lace in a pale olive. I do like this one but I haven't worn it in a looong time...just can't let go of it with all that gorgeous lace! It even has a purse that matches! I sort of wadded the dress up onto the table and pulled the long lace out making a circular shape.
Next I took the bottom half of a cookie jar and filled it with white roses (yes, silk...someday I'll try to have fresh flowers).
The lace romantically flows....
In keeping with a little bit of a Spring-ish theme I decided to put one of Mr. Hare's brothers amongst the white roses.
His name is Poor and that's because Poor little rabbit lost his Mrs. We're not sure if Mr. McGregor got her in his garden or she was lost in the journey from Colorado to Oklahoma but she's been missing for several years now. Though I've spent many hours searching in earnest for her, Poor and I are still hopeful that she may find her way back home. He always dresses in his best blue suit anxiously awaiting her return.
I added an olive green transferware plate by J & G Meakin (BUY HERE). I love the border on this pattern with tiny flowers and berries.
I found these little green bowls/dessert cups also at a thrift store for a quarter a piece. I put one on each of the blue Oriental plates.
Again wanting to add a little more 'light' to the table I added these vintage, lace trimmed white napkins. These were my Mom's. She was always hosting gorgeous dinners and parties and I remember her using these on several of those occasions. My flatware is Towle...and...uh...hmmm....I can't remember the pattern name! It may be Stockholm....yes, I think that's the name of it.
The blue stemmed glasses, I believe are Avon.
These salt and pepper shakers match the cookie jar (minus the lid). These are Tar-zhay (Target) from way back when...well, along time ago.
Lastly, I added a touch of candle light with these vintage inspired Hobby Lobby glass candle holders.
I enjoyed putting this tablescape together and hope you do to. I really like the colors combined. Enjoy!
They are each gorgeous, and hosted by lovely people.
