Cobalt Blue and Green Tablescape

My latest table was inspired by this table runner that I made a few weeks ago.

I pulled out my big martini glass vase and filled it with matching marbles and some water.
I then went outside and cut down all the white peonies that I had left in my garden.

After a good swishing of each peony head in a bucket of water (to remove the ants/bugs), I started filling the vase with them. The marbles worked great to hold the flowers in place.

I used a cobalt blue dinner plate and a green salad plate atop a heavy silver charger. The blue Chinese patterned egg cup was added to hold a flower at each place setting.

I wanted to put a peony in each egg cup, but I ran out of them. So I took a walk around the yard to see what else would work. All I could find was a bright yellow daylily.
I decided I liked the bold punch of color the dayliles added.

A cobalt glass holds a crisp white linen napkin in one of my favorite folds.

To bring in more green, I added a small green wine glass.

A few cobalt blue bottles will be great to hold beverages. I added crystal toppers in each bottle.

Here is a smaller pic in case the big one is cut off on your screen.

Thank you for stopping by to see another of my tablescapes.

Beautiful tablescape. It is just stunning. I LOVE the pretty flowers and a single flower in each egg cup is just the perfect touch of color. How wonderful to walk out into the yard and pick pretty flowers. Your table runner is so lovely and all the dishes and accessories you chose are just so beautifully put together. Great job. Hugs, Marty
