Crisp, cooling summer blues

August 10, 2012

Navy and white, a classic pairing that’s sophisticated yet casual. The colors evoke warm summer days, blue skies, ocean breezes and lazy lunches al fresco.

Mini geometric-patterned napkins bring a modern feel to a casual table setting.

Tonal stripes, abstract florals and graphic patterns are whimsical, cheerful, fresh.

A simple glass of iced water looks thirst-quenching when dressed in this turquoise Hobnail Tumbler.

This dark rum mojito with basil would be right at home in that gorgeous turquoise tumbler!

Gorgeous pictures, I love this pairing! Since I started food styling, it’s SO hard not to buy something every time I’m out and see color plates, place mats or pretty napkins. It’s an addiction, these look great!! :)

I LOVE these blues and the pictures are awesome.
I have to stay away from linens as I would buy way too many…I just get so wrapped up in all of the color choices.

I rather suck at food styling so your tips here are a Godsend! So useful to know… I love your blog already, and I haven’t even looked at a single recipe yet ;-).

Thank you for your comments everyone… I know exactly how most of you feel about buying too many linens. I try to stick to my favorite colors and blue is definitely high on that list.

Maya, you really put a smile on my face!
