Something old...something blue...

 Table for four, please...
This week I wanted to showcase these Romanian crystal juice glasses and I only have four of them. My friend, who also gave me the linen place mats and the tablecloth from last week, gave me these a few years ago. She has gone to Romania almost every summer for missions for the last 10+years and has collected many things over the years. I guess I'm her go-to giftee  because she always gives me the most amazing things!! 
The table is set with JB  Denmark Blue Dinner Plates, Blue Danube luncheon plates & cups and saucers, my grandmother's silver and silverplate, estate sale napkins, Target clearance napkin rings, and my goblets from Marshall's. The centerpiece platter is a new find from an estate sale last week. I don't have a Denmark Blue or Blue Danube teapot, so I used my JB Blue Willow teapot.
I love the details on these cups and saucers.

This is so lovely. I love the handles on those teacups. Those dishes are my favorite blue and white pattern.

So much to like here...I particularly am charmed by the blue and white against the mocha linen placemat. Great design choice! The blue crystal is a real treasure. Thank you for inviting us for a peak. Cherry Kay

This is so beautiful and I'm not even a blue person! My mother had a cup like yours in her cup collection. It was so nice to see them in a tablescape! I love those blue glasses!
