A Little Blue & White Table Top

I realized I hadn't showed my little round table since I re-did it. This table,as I have said in prior posts, changes constantly. First of all, I get bored and second, I use this table for a lot of my picture taking so, I try to keep it relatively simple.

I decided I hadn't used blue and white on this table in ages and I love this teacup set so, I put it under the cloche and added a few little items.

I used this teacup and saucer in my Victorian Tea party but, never really showed an details of it.

As I got ready to take pictures a huge storm came in so, although I took these pictures at 1:00 in the afternoon, they came out very dark. So, I took more with a flash to show as well.

I started with a pretty blue floral linen napkin I have had for quite sometime. And then added the blue glass cake stand . I got this stand for just a couple of dollars awhile ago at a thrift store. I really like it. It has small leaf design the edge of the plate part. I folded a sweet blue and white hankie to set the teacup and saucer on and let it hang over the sides of the cake plate and under the cloche.

Here is a closer look at the teacup and saucer.

I'm so glad I bought several of these cute little birds when they were half off at Michael's. They are just the perfect little add on items.

I have had this pretty shabby off white, crystal and iron candlestick for years. I bought it at a street fair. It was only $4.50 and I have loved it ever since I bought it home.

And these two white pieces I have shown you before were thrift finds. I added some tumbled clear glass and navy candle. I think the glass looks like ice and really glitters beautifully when the candle is lit.

Well, that is my thrifty blue and white table re-do. I think with the exception of the 2 birds I got new but clearanced 50% off and the candlestick from the street fair, everything else on this table was bought second hand at a thrift store.

Thank you for stopping by! Now, I am going to join these fun parties!
