Set Your Table With Flair--Blue and Silver Tea in Bed

Hello, friends!  If you have never been to my blog, welcome!!  Those of you returning, thank you so much!  In our busy times, we all deserve a little reprieve, don't we?  An increment of self-indulging laziness to just relax and reflect.  If you do happen to be a returning visitor to my blog, by now you realize I am just a little taken with the color blue.  It's so gorgeous to me!  Today's post features two of my favorite colors, blue and silver, with a bit of white.  I hope you enjoy the post.

I began with a lovely blue and white tray.  I love the damask pattern!

Closeup of the detail. 

Next, I added the cups, 

which were followed by two lovely butterfly plates.  Adore the scalloped edges on these plates!  

My silver coffee and tea service came next.....and in the larger coffee pot,

I placed white gladiolus.  They smell so lovely!!

Next, the corresponding sugar and creamer to my cups,

and to complete the setting, darling vintage tea napkins and dainty teaspoons. 

I just love tea napkins, don't you?  I especially love vintage....these are so sweet and delicate.

If you don't have tea linen available to you, paper napkins with a similar pattern or like colors can be an adorable alternative.
