Hydrangea Table Setting | Bliss Blue, Privet Berry Blue & Seaside


Last week I set a table to coordinate with the Blue Hydrangea Cupcakes I posted yesterday (complete with new how-to video...).

I love mixing and matching with all of the colors in my collection.  I used my Powder Blue Anna Wheatherly gold rimmed china plates (they match the Bliss Blue Color Collection in my store) because I think the pale blue looks so great with the purple and deep blues of the late summer hydrangea that seem to be everywhere in our neighborhood - except my house.  I "borrowed" them from my neighbor - with permission, of course.



I had a hard time deciding which candles to use to compliment the flowers...

Left to Right :

Mom's Hydrangea
Seaside
Privet Berry Blue



I ended up with the Privet Berry Blue.  I thought they looked great with the cupcakes I created, as they were a deeper blue.  They "Mom's Hydrangea" color was almost too close of an exact match with the actual hydrangeas, and I thought the Seaside was a little too bright. 
The True Navy Blue was such a nice compliment to the light blue plates.

The Hemstitch Napkins are embroidered in Seaside.
The here are the deep blue and purple "Hydrangea Cupcakes" I made featuring the fun Celebration Candles in Seaside.

    So pretty. What kind of finish did you use on your table after it was sanded? I thought I read about it, but can't find it now. Thank you.
    Your little Emma is just darling.

  6. Gosh, Emma has grown so much, quite a little girl now, no longer a baby, I don't know where the time has gone.

    I love the hydrangea cupcakes, would love to know how you make these, can you do a post for us :)?

    Your candles work perfect with the gorgeous blue icing.

    I have to ask the same as Liz! I love the finish you put on your farm table! I know you stripped it from the high gloss black but would love to know the stain or mixture you used - it's perfection! The RH chairs all around the table make it look so cozy and welcoming - two perfect ingredients for a fun dinner party! Although not in this picture, where did you get your ladderback chairs? It's so hard to find them with the straw seating. They are great for casual dinners! Well done, as always!
