I accepted a challenge from a fellow YouTuber who asked that I pull out some of my blue and white chinoiserie and decorate a tablescape.
I'm a big collector of blue and white porcelain, so I was definitely up for this challenge!
What Is A Vignette?
In home decor, a vignette refers to a small area staged to create a theme. That's the best way I can describe it. It could be in the corner of a room, in the entryway, on a table. You get the picture.
I knew exactly which blue and white pieces I was going to use. Well, I knew that I was going to incorporate one piece in particular--my Blue Willow teapot. From there, I would have to search my stash to see what I could find.
I envisioned a Blue Willow tea party theme.
What You Need For A Blue
Here's what I used:
Tea Party Willow
White wooden tray - thrifted and upcycled
Pink and white gingham napkins
Faux tulips and bud vaseThe tray that I used had previously been brown. I painted it white and spray painted the handles gold. Made a world of difference!
The Blue Willow teapot is so adorable! I thrifted it a couple of weeks ago for four bucks. It's electric, but the detachable cord is missing. I gave it a really good scrubbing with a soapy steel wool pad because it had a lot of caffeine stains. But it's so cute! I absolutely love it!
Here is a similar teapot (not electric) that I found online:
Then I remembered that I had a few Blue Willow saucers from a previous thrift haul. Bonus!
I threw in some pink and white gingham napkins that I used for my Easter table. There is
A few pink tulips in a bud vase, and that's that!
Tea is served!
