My Annabelle hydrangeas are prime for picking right now. They are a fluffy blooming mass that hugs one side of our front porch. These hydrangeas start out snowy white and change to the most gorgeous citron green as September draws near. I know they are right for bringing inside when a few of the individual flowerets are tinged with sepia and brown. So right now they are scattered throughout StoneGable in white ironstone. These green beauties and white ironstone are a perfect match! Today they have made their way to my dining room table…
Make sure to check out the beautiful tables at the end of this post.
To show off the hydrangeas the table was set with white dishes. I love love love dishes with interesting edges so a stacked a trio of my favorites!
To keep things simple I used one of my favorite napkins and tucked it between the plates. I’ve had these napkins for over a decade and keep going back to them again and again. I think it is the mix of soft and natural colors!
One of my signature touches when I set a table is to mismatch something. Today, it was the silver. It’s so fun to have something a tad unexpected! And I didn’t polish it either! I’ve been using it slightly tarnished… love the patina!
There is something so charming about these hobnail glasses. They work so well with hydrangeas… and ironstone!
A white linen runner with embroidered white leaves works as a backdrop for the ironstone that runs down the center of the table.
Hydrangeas can show up in the prettiest places!
Some of my sweetest girlfriends came over and had lunch among the hydrangeas and ironstone!
