Blue on Blue Tablescape

Since Mother’s Day is right around the corner, I was going to use my Mom’s china.  But, Walmart got in these clear cobalt blue dishes by Anchor Hocking, and I just had to use them.  (I love cobalt blue)

I started off with a light blue damask tablecloth & light blue napkins.  Then to compliment the dishware, I added my cobalt blue flatware, some mugs & goblets.

Since the color of the dishware is so intense, I kept the centerpiece simple.  I used a place mat mirror as the base.  Then I added some mercury glass candle holders and added some battery operated candles.  I scattered some cobalt blue flat backed marbles to bring the cobalt blue towards the center of the table.  My cobalt blue salt & pepper shakers finished it off.

I love the way the sunshine shows through the dishware!

And with the candles lit:

There’s something about cobalt blue that makes me happy.  I hope it brought some happiness to you.
