A Blue and White Winter Setting for Ten.

Hello sweet friends !

I am soon making a dinner party with family and his cousins for Alejandro's birthday, January 28th.

Therefore, my idea for a Winter table setting and at the same token, kind of masculine, it's what I came up with. I hope you agree with me, but you can suggest.

Mr. Living's favorite plates are the 'Blue and White Transferware,' mix and match patterns, dinner and salad plates I have and the other would be the 'Bleu Danube' onion china for eight he gave me several years ago. It will not be enough, I will have ten here and six in the round table where the Onion will go.

This is my creation to make Mr. Living happy, besides the fact that I will be using my gorgeous "German Nachtmann" crystal chargers he gave me for my birthday back in October 20th. and will make a debut on 'his' birthday instead, lol..

Alejandro loved this centerpiece, better then flowers, he says... so cute.

You know I love this crystal 'Polish Bohemian Shannon' crystal cake stand and dome... so I'm glad hubby loves it as a centerpiece with the snowed up pinecones I painted.

Don't you just love the German crystal chargers ?

I have collected fourteen blue and white transferware dinner plates and they're all different.
I also have soup plates and salad plates.

Some more blue and white in the back wall too.

Antique English blue water pitcher.

In the buffet I placed my 'Friendly Village' tureen and big serving platter.

This is a wonderful coincidence !

 Here you can see part of the Nachtmann, German chargers pattern and on the left top there's a crystal bread plate I bought a couple of years ago and it's the exact same pattern and it's made in Japan ?!

The 'soupcups' are Wilmax-England and for a delish soup I make and that hubby loves and it's, "Crème of Mushroom Soup."

I'm into the blue and white for the new year.

Here I always keep my sterling and silver things; but now I added my 'Foo- Dogs and left my mercury and hand blown glass hurricanes from Christmas.

I also added blue and white to my French country skinny dish shelf.

Here is the setting for Mr. Living's milestone birthday this coming January 28, 2017. I'm happy he loves it.

Thank you for your sweet and kind visit my friends, you always make my day !

Thanking the lovely hostesses for having me at their great parties.
