Winter Blues

Winter blues in my tablescape today that is, in the form of fake flowers and a floral table runner.  When there are no flowers to pick, this variety gives my home and instant pick-me-up.

The most timeless combination of blue and white would cheer even the most winter weary soul.  

  White ironstone by Hotel Balfour available at TJ Maxx.

Ruffles are so flirty.  They hang there all billowy teasing you at the table's edge.

Hi Sherry, as always your table scape is a charm! I use much these dishes for dinner, because the white color is striking and the runner you've made a nice, gives a delicate touch to the table. Thank God there are artificial flowers are a great resolve, right? for me are essential, as the plants here are more tropical. Great job, blessings, Rose Marie

When you start with that adorable runner that you made, the rest is just gravy! I agree about ruffles being flirty. I hadn't thought of it before.

Just a great table to chase the winter blues away.
