Blue & White on the Dining Room Table

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!

  2. I have lots of blue and white pieces, Home Goods and Ross are excellent places to shop for Blue and white. But I also have gotten some beautiful pieces from thrift stores and flea markets. I LOVE the hunt! :-)

  3. So pretty - I love blue and white too. I was also noticing how pretty your wall color looks with the beautiful wood of your furniture. It's a great combination!

  4. I absolutely adore white and blue pottery pieces! You've displayed it in a lovely, beautiful way! Loving the silver compote filled with apples, too! Shared it on my FB! :) ~Rhonda

  5. Looks really good and I love all the items you place together.Good choice.

  6. Barbara, I love blue/white...it is timeless and always looks fresh! I saw some pretty blue and white at Hobby Lobby last week! Your vignette is beautiful and I use all colors with blue/white! Blessings, Pam @ Everyday Living

  7. Fresh and Spring Like - makes me want to enjoy time in your room. Funny thing, I tried to sell a couple of my blue and white..actually three of them at a garage sale about a year or so ago and they didn't sell. A month later they were all the rage in the decorating books and high-end furniture stores with quite a mark up. I tucked mine away for safe keeping, they were from HomeGoods after all and I didn't pay a lot for them but perhaps I will get them out of the attic and give them a second chance! thanks for inspiring me

  8. Your new blue and white jar collection is so pretty! I agree that those pieces are timeless. I like how you grouped them together for more impact and added the hydrangeas.

  9. Gorgeous. I love the arrangement and your new jar is stunning.

  10. Barbara,
    The blue and white bowl filled with green and white is stunning, dear friend!
    I adore your new blue and white jar!
    Glass hurricanes and silver are great complementary accessories!
    Your Dining Room Table looks amazing!

  11. You are speaking my language! Your centerpiece vignette is just lovely. I have collected blue and white for years...and have found that it works with most paint colors! And most seasons! Blue and white is classic/ timeless.

  12. That is so pretty, Barbara. I love blue and white together and will be redoing the parlor mantle for summer soon. Your new jar is gorgeous and I really love the shot of the table that shows your pretty chandy. It all goes so well with the calming blue you painted the DR. You put together just the right arrangement..Happy Tuesday..xxo Judy

  13. What a beautiful center piece vignette you created! I love the combination of the blue and white with the green. And those birds are just so sweet! Very nicely done!

  14. I love the look of blue and white, and donated a couple of jars a few years ago, that I have wished for since! Don't know what possessed me to get rid of them, but it was for a good cause. I'll be sharing some blue and white soon. Hope you can visit!

  15. Sweet little milk glass piece. Love your vignette centerpiece. Blue and white is my favorite.
    Good photography.

  16. It is lovely, especially with the hydrangeas.
