Periwinkle and Yellow

Yesterday, I had a casual lunch at Pat's. Naturally, she set the table flawlessly. I grabbed the camera and took a few pictures. See what you think.
Overview of the table.

Close up of the plates that Pat used.

Pat made a simple arrangement of fresh flowers from her garden.

Super polished silver - "April" by Wm Rogers & Son are from Pat's husband's family.

"Dampierre" by Cris d'Arques water and wine glasses were a gift to Pat from our Mother after the devastating earthquake of 1993.

Pat started with a small vegetable/fruit bowl from her Centura by Corning dishes.

Next, she used a Periwinkle blue Fiestaware salad plate.

Handmade light yellow napkins from soft Kona cotton folded across the plate. Pat saw this fold on the "Barefoot Contessa" TV show (Food Network) the other day and wanted to try it.

Yellow "Sunflower" Fiestaware luncheon plate is next.

The dinner plate is Periwinkle blue Fiestaware to match.

The white coupe shaped charger is by Bernardaud (one of Pat's favorites.)

Very hard to find Periwinkle blue Bread and Butter plates hold a butter spreader in the "April" pattern.

The Waterford vase was a retirement gift to Pat's husband who worked over 40 years for CalFire (formerly California Department of Forestry.)

Just for fun, Pat grabbed some dessert plates from her Spode "Buttercup" pattern to see how they would look. The plate has both yellow and periwinkle blue in it.

Close up of the plate. It is gorgeous.

I had to take a picture of the table.

Back to the original table just before lunch was served.
