Blue Danube Table

Pat is hosting the family Easter Brunch this year (she usually does since she is a fabulous cook and can bake like a pro) - she decided to start sampling possible table decorating and place setting ideas on my table. This is one that she came up with:
Blue Danube has a unique underglaze and is fired at an extremely high temperature making each piece dishwasher and microwave safe and very chip resistant. The individual casserole (like several other pieces) is even oven safe up to 500 degrees.

Pat added a "Cobalt" blue Fiesta(ware) bread and butter plate as a liner to the individual casserole to add a little contrast

Flatware is blue "San Remo" by Hampton Forge Silversmiths

The charger is from the Maryland China Company - it's one of my favorites....

I also love the interesting handle on the coffee cup

Pat decided on simple glassware because the dinnerware pattern is so busy

Another favorite piece - this is just one style of butter dish offered in the pattern

Pat thought she might use all these pieces for the Brunch so she placed them on a tray for convenience. 

The small white porcelain salt spoons did not come with the individual salt cellars - we found them online at the Maryland China Company

  1. I thinks hands down this blue and white is so beautiful it could be on the queen of Englands table! I would say the white house but I don't want to offend anyone by saying the obama administration, not trumps. (bad joke, sorry!) Love it, Standing ovation ladies!

  2. What a beautiful table, set with the beautiful Blue Danube china! I especially like the blue handled flatware, too. So lovely!

  3. Blue and white is always going to be a winner - no matter what the season or occasion! What a beautiful table - love it all.
