Well, it has been HOT and HUMID in these parts (and I know everywhere else) so I decided to set a table with COOL blues and whites. I had to cut the hydrangeas as they are FADING fast!!!! Turning a gorgeous shade of GREEN but I needed blue for this table!!! The flowers appear purple in the pictures, as well as the candles but they are a TRUE shade of blue. I am sure it is the lighting. My dining room does not lend itself to good pictures! I layered a blue tablecloth with a flowered edge over a crisp white tablecloth because the blue one is not quite big enough. Then a straw placemat, my trusty white chargers, a solid blue dinner plate, a blue and white dinner plate, a white salad and a blue and white salad plate, then a sherbert glass with a hydrangea bloom floating in it!!!!!
 I layered 2 napkins: a plain blue and a white with a blue edge.
 Detail of the flowered tablecloth. I got this at GW 2 years ago for, I think, $4.00 and it had a set of 4 napkins with it!!!!! The flowers are not hydrangeas but I thought that was OK.

 See what I mean about the color of the flowers? I promise thay are NOT purple:):)
 They are arranged in one of my many blue and white jars.

 The blue and white pitcher is for our water.
 I used a blue wine glass and a blue water goblet.
 On each side of the centerpiece is a blue and white pillar holder that I got MANY years ago. I find it VERY hard to find blue and white pieces now. I am so glad I started collecting blue and white pieces when I did!!!!
 My NEW Napolean Bee flatware is making it's debut on this table!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so in love with it!!!!!
 See the bees?

 As the light begins to fade it is time to light the candles.

I am joining these parties and hope you will go visit them too. Thanks to all the hostesses for hosting these wonderful parties!!!!!
