I recently acquired my very first blue and white ginger jar from Home Goods and I have to say that it is soooooo pretty! I love blue and white together...to me it is the ultimate classic combination. And what better place to display my beautiful jar but on the dining room table. However one jar on this vast table wasn't going to work, so I shopped around my home for some complimentary pieces to create the table's vignette.
Silver is a beautiful accent metal to mix with blue and white. Using two silver candle sticks and hurricane globes, I flanked the center display. Then a pretty silver compote filled with faux pears was added to the vignette.
I also happened to have a large blue and white planter I bought years ago up in our attic, so down she came, was cleaned up and filled with faux hydrangeas and peonies. This arrangement anchors the entire vignette.
A couple of love birds sit on the right side of the large planter to balance out the ginger jar and compote on the left.
I also added a darling little milk glass vase to the display.
I think the green of the pears and hydrangeas really compliment blue and white as well as the silver pieces do. They also tie in to the green in our dining room's draperies.
I am going to be keeping my eyes peeled for more blue and white jars and vases to add to my newly started collection. How about you...what are your feelings about the combination of blue and white?
Wishing you all a great start to your week!
