Table decorating should be an enjoyable experience and is something that everyone can do! It doesn't have to coast a lot of money to create a beautiful tablescape and your family and friends will truly enjoy the gorgeous atmosphere you have created.
The inspiration for this modern-vintage and blue table was my mother's vintage cobalt china I'v had a long time now.Maybe a lot of you have these cobalt dishes at your home from your mother's collection because on these days you can't find them on the stores.I'v always had a respect for vintage china and my love of design makes tablescaping something I really enjoy.

A gold patterned tablecloth adds depth and plays nicely with the mix of patterns in the dishes and centerpiece.I love mixing patterns!

A table setting is not complete without lovely fresh flowers and for this one I used pretty spring flowering branches from the garden.

And because I wanted the vintage dishes to take center stage each place was set with one dessert cobalt plate sitting on a gold charger with blue napkins and crystal wine goblet.

I\really enjoyed making this lovely table,and I'm blessed to have lovely things.Beautiful things don't have to be expensive,and in my case often aren't. I mix the treasures that were passed down to me with things that cost very little.Style shouldn't be expensive.How we hold,share and mix things in our own individual ways ,that's true style.And most of all is the people that fill this table with love and give it meaning and joy.

I came across this tip on my friends blog : Use your collections,they don't come into existence,just to display,hang on the wall or collect on your cabinets; they come into existence to be used and enjoyed.

I really enjoyed pulling this look together.I hope you take some inspiration away from it.
