Ahhh! Blue and Yellow


The It's been a while for me, but today I'm joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday. The table is set for breakfast in the kitchen. Let's go have a look.



It has finally warmed up a bit, and I wanted to use bright, "unwinter" colors of yellow and blue.


I found these placemats at the "old faithful" Dollar Tree.


I used my white dinnerware from Walmart and my blue napkins.



I have had these blue and white cereal bowls for a while, and thought they matched very nicely with my tablescape. :)






My flowers are from Dollar Tree also. The Target birds wanted to get in the setting too, even though it is kinda crowded as my table is not that big.





I love my little vintage juice glasses! A find while antiquing one day.



This white pitcher is my Mom's. I don't know if it's old or not, but I liked it for this tablescape also.




This tablescape reminds me that Spring is around the corner. Thanks for stopping by. I loved having you.

What a beautiful table. And those placemats would go perfectly with my color scheme. I'll have to be on the lookout here in Canada at my Dollar Store.
