  1. The outdoor setting is great….colors are great…love those plates!

    1. Thanks, Bev! It was nice to have the opportunity to use them again. Sometimes I feel funny re-using things with an obvious pattern on them, but I try to make them look different… ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Very pretty and elegant! I love the plates and the Pottery Barn spreader and vintage cheese knife. I find that sometimes improvising yields the best results– it definitely worked for you here!

  3. I love everything about this! It is so charming and calming. I love the idea of putting a pretty vase to use to contain napkins. I’ll be using that idea. Thanks!

    1. Thank you, Pattie! Those are the kinds of ideas that come together when you’re working quickly and not laboring over it too much… ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks for visiting!!

  4. Love the plates…now I have to go and look to see if I can find any :^)
    You can use them over and over and I will be delighted to look at them!
    Have a great weekend, and blessings to you,

    1. Thanks, J!! I actually do like to challenge myself to find new ways to use obvious patterns. Will definitely revisit this one… ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks for stopping by!

  5. What a cute informal setting. I like the way the blue repeats in the plates and napkins and is reflected in the vase. The reflections in that vase is awesome! Great inspiration.

    1. Thanks, Cyndi! Funny, I was just noticing that blue in the vase when I pinned that post on Pinterest yesterday. That one was unplanned serendipity… lol! Glad someone else noticed though… ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. It’s always nice to be outside enjoying friends and food. Your setting is casual and relaxing, love the F&F plates. I’ve been thinking about potting some hydrangeas in a pot so glad to see yours.
