Blue and white dinnerware can be beautiful for any occasion and in my experience appeals to both men and women. I have a great source for inexpensive blue patterned ceramics like these bowls. If you are in New York City visit Pearl River Mart on Broadway and have a fun afternoon shopping for all kinds of things from bowls, vases and plates to paper parasols and lanterns.
Blue patterned ceramic bowls and plates above, from Pearl River. Large porcelain jars and vases are available from Gump’s and beautiful blue tumblers and stemware from Baccarat. For plates take peek at Mottahedeh’s Blue Lace pattern dinnerware. Once you start looking for blue plates, vases and bowls, the choices are almost endless.
You can find napkins like the ones you see pictured above from Daisy Hill Linens. -Lynn Butler Beling
