Home Sweet Home # 38

Hello and welcome to Home Sweet Home!  I posted a tablescape from last year earlier this week and I always get the same response when people see it.   They remark that they never realized blue and white looks so good with orange.  Blue and orange were made for each other.  So pull out your blue and white for fall.  Paired with a white back ground it looks fresh. 

Fall can be blue and orange!  

 Now, I would like to feature some wonderful post from Home Sweet Home from the last two weeks.  Due to my technical difficulties last week I am combining the features from the two parties.

 First, Kelly at The Essence of Home showed off some changes.  Isn't this rustic crate cute with this arrangement?  Click the link to view.

Elizabeth, at Pinecones and Acorns has a friend that painted this table free hand!  Isn't she talented!  Click the link to view.

 Kathy, at A Tiny Cottage On Grand created this Frankenstein inspired cloche display.  I thought it had all the right Gothic touches.  Click the link to view.

Debbie, at Confessions of A Plate Addict created this Eiffel Tower Book Bundle that was really cute!  Click the link to view. 

Thank you to all who join me at Home Sweet Home!  It is awesome to have you here! 

I will join these ladies today:
 Inspiration Friday At The Picket Fence
Feathered Nest Friday at French Country Cottage
Fridays Unfolded  at Stuff and Nonsense
Potpourri Friday at 2805
Farmhouse Friday  at LaurieAnna's Vintage Home
Show and Tell Friday at My Romantic Home
Open House Party at No Minimalist Here

I just ran across your link at Common Ground and am so glad I came to visit. I didn't realize you hosted a party as well and I was delighted to link up with yours. I really enjoyed seeing your blue and orange-you're right, they look stunning together. I also enjoyed the other links you featured and will be sure to visit their blogs as well.

I think you have inspired me to get out my blue and white vintage dishes and team them up with autumn! Great job!

Faye said...

Thank you for hosting! I hook rugs and I found out from my teacher years ago how perfect orange pumpkins with a dark blue background go together ...I never would have put together that combo but I love it! Your dishes and mini pumpkins are so pretty!

Chari at Happy To Design said...

Hi Sherry...

Oooh...I think your blue and white looks GORGEOUS with the orange but I must admit...I am one of those who never considered this pretty color combination! I really do like it! And...your photos are sooo beautiful, Sherry! I think they would make lovely cards for autumn!

Well dear lady, you certainly did choose some really awesome party posts to showcase this week. I loved every one of them! Thank you for hosting another week of Home Sweet Home for us! Hope you're having a sweet day, my friend!

Warmest autumn wishes,

I love your blue and white with orange. I would never have thought of this. I'll try this for Thanksgiving, my blue willow with accents of orange. Thanks for the inspiration. Great features. Thanks for hosting.

Dear Sherry, What a lovely combination. I have always loved blue and white and seeing the orange with it is most delightful. Great combination. You have beautiful cups, saucers and problem would be storage!

Ivy and Elephants said...

Blue and orange look great together! Who knew?
You, of course! Thanks for hosting, the features are fabulous, especially that cloche.

Honey at 2805 said...

Your blue and white with orange are perfect together! Thanks for being a gracious hostess!

I appreciate your participation in Potpourri Friday is appreciated! Many thanks!

Miss Kitty said...

Thanks for hosting "Home Sweet Home" link party today! I ADORE orange and blue together...they are the colors of my favorite college team, Auburn. It's nice to see the colors together in an elegant way too.

Bunny Jean said...

Hi Sherry, You did a wonderful job of using those colors!

Blue and orange go together because the are opposites on the color wheel... they are "Complimentary Colors" (green and red, yellow and purple...)

Complimentary colors always give a big POP when used together. The white makes it very crisp.

Thanks for hosting this fun party! It is my first time here :)

Wednesday's Bunny Hop Party!

Anita Diaz said...

I also love blue and orange!! I did a Blue Willow tablescape a couple years ago with orange and gold and I still love it!! Your is beautiful!!

Scribbler said...

Blue and orange are opposites on the color wheel, so there is sound basis for the fact that they work so perfectly. Lovely!

Sarah said...

I agree! Blue and orange are a great combination. They are complimentary colors and I especially like to mix them in the fall. I put orange Chinese lantern pods in one of my blue and white vases. Looks great.
Thanks for hosting each week, and Happy Halloween. ~ Sarah
