Blue Danube Table Setting
Blue Danube is an old china pattern with quite the history ranging from production in Germany to Japan. On eBay you can find dozens of pieces for pretty decent prices. I really love this, and have since the first time I spotted it. After looking for a couple of months I found a fantastic deal on a set of salad plates with scalloped edges and free shipping. I snapped them up immediately and love mixing this traditional pattern with my cobalt Fiesta plates and some pineapple napkin rings.
Don’t worry. Eclectic-chic is totally a thing. Wink.
I started this setting with a white table cloth topped by a navy blue runner. I used silver chargers that I picked up for $0.50 each at Tuesday Morning and my beloved Cobalt Blue Fiestaware dinner plates.
After twelve years of daily use I have finally replaced my old flatware with these fancy modern pieces called Towle Living Wave. I love how sleek they are and the weight is just perfect in your hand. Bright green napkins and shiny silver pineapple napkin rings keep this from being too serious or too wintery. After days of gray gloom I couldn’t handle a fully winterized table setting.
Miniature pink calla lilies? Yes please, I’ll take two bunches. Simple and elegant in small bottles, these really help this table seem more spring-like.
