Pat generally uses blue as the accent color for "Buttercup" when she sets the table, but she has been known to "take it to the next level".(Here) As she says, it is very versatile and can be dressy or casual.
Since the table was set for a Ladies Luncheon, Pat used the coffee and tea pot for a simple centerpiece.
For the charger, Pat used Wedgwood's "Edme" chargers
Flatware is "Wind Song" silverplate by Oneida (which was relatively inexpensive and sold door to door when it was produced during the 1940's and 1950's)
Water goblets are "Navarre" by Fostoria
Buttercup was a very popular pattern - in fact, Harry Rinker list both the Old Backstamp and Newer Backstamp patterns in his book Dinnerware of the 20th Century: The Top 500 Patterns.
Pat made small arrangements in cream soup bowls
I love the classic candle holders from Abingdon Pottery in matching blue
