When I set out to do this tablescape for Spring, I wanted to use my Jadite dishes. I hadn't used them in a while and I thought it would be fun to combine patterns to give all the dinnerware a fresh look. And I was thrilled to see how combining my blue and green dishes would look, hopefully giving my Jadeite, popular in the 1940s, a brand new feel.
As it turned out, my aunt's delicate blue and white German fine china was a really fun mix with the Jadeite. Although I doubt she would have liked it, this was just the fresh look I had been hoping for. Bamboo flatware from Pottery Barn was just the thing to carry on the fresh look and bring some lake feel into the table. You can use the link to buy some in my "Shop the Feed" section if you scroll down on my homepage. And the green chargers from Nell Hills really anchored the whole combination!
Batik napkins are a common thing at our lake house. If you have dinner with us, there's a good chance you will use one! The reason is, I love using the ones I found at Nell Hills in Kansas City, but I also inherited many vintage ones from my aunt. Turns out her style from years ago fits right into the look at our lake house.
And finally, I took a chance putting bright colored pinks and yellows with this blue and green combo of dishes, but I absolutely love what In Bloom Kansas City did for me. I wanted a vintage feel with a bright look, and she nailed it! She's one to follow on Instagram @inbloomkc. Her prices are super reasonable and the look is super fresh and pretty!
