  4. Wow! I love the blue and white…so soft and pretty. Your ruffled napkins are something perfect to stitch together for a dressy occasion. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks, Kim! I wish I was handy enough to stitch them together… ๐Ÿ˜‰ I would have them in every color!! Thanks for visiting!

    A very welcoming table, Lori! Those white dishes . . . one of these days . . . ๐Ÿ™‚ What a clever way to use those mason jars! Love the blue striped tea towels. They are perfect to anchor your dishes. Everything looks lovely!

  6. A blessed Passover to you, Lori. The setting is beautiful!

  7. Love, love love the use of the mason jars/milk bottle holder as a Sedur Plate. That was definitely a wonderful ‘thinking outside the box’ moment! Chag Sameach to you and yours!

    1. Thanks, Susan!! I think my unusual seder plates started last year, when I realized my pink seder plate didn’t match my blue dishes… lol. Just followed along the same lines this year… ๐Ÿ˜‰ Chag Sameach right back to you!!

  8. absolutely beautiful! Thank you for sharing at the Thursday Favorite Things blog hop. watch for your feature on Monday xo

  9. What a great idea for a centerpiece! Love the freshness of the blue and white. Still my most favorite color for a kitchen.

  10. This is so pretty! I love the casual elegance of the whole tablescape. I will be pinning for inspiration!

  11. Just lovely. Love the blue and white crispness. Your Channukah table was beyond beautiful.
    I was lucky enough to buy some unique plates at a thrift shop recently; probably from an estate. Sad that family members gave them up.

    1. Thank you so much, Myrna! Yes, sometimes I’m amazed at what’s available at thrift shops because they are so lovely! But I think we’ve all given away things at some time that we later regretted… ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Absolutely lovely! I love everything about this tablescape. Where oh where did you find those fantastic french plates on the top though???

    1. Thank you so much! I wish I could link them. They were from Sur La Table from a few years ago, but they don’t seem to make them anymore. Every now and then they come up on ebay, so you can always check there, but I did look before sending out the post.

      1. Adrienne Dzelme says:

        Thank you so much. I will definitely keep my eye out for them!

  13. I know those are your old gingham chairs but I love them!! Did you have them reapolstered or where did you buy them?

  14. Love this table Lory – beautiful and meaningful at the same time! I’m always fascinated to learn about different holidays, and I bet your guests loved your alternate seder plate. Thanks for another round of great inspiration, education, and beauty!

    Lovely! Like you, it’s the slowed down lifestyle that appeals to me about the French country life. It’s hard to explain to those who haven’t experienced it because it’s not natural for we, as Americans, to do anything other than rush. Mix in the beauty of the country, the history of the land, and the eye candy, from fields of lavender to glorious plantings everywhere to the art, the architecture, and the food, and it makes me envious not to be there.

    Thanks again for your offering and make you have a blessed Passover Season,


  16. Lovely as always! Can you provide any additional brand/pattern info on the appetizer plates? I would love to try and find them!

    1. Yes, sure. They were from Sur La Table – sadly, discontinued. I occasionally find them on eBay and when I do I link them, but once they sell, they’re gone until the next ones are listed. I don’t see any now, other than these luncheon plates that are from the same suite:
      There are only 3 of those plates, but in case you want to use the info to help search for them, I’m including them here.
      Good luck!!
