~Blue White Yellow~










A table set in blue, white, and yellow.  The jar, holding sunflowers, was made by a Missouri artisan.  The dishes, flatware, and linens are from Home Goods. The glasses are from Nell Hill’s.


The sunflowers, grown in Missouri, are from a local florist. 


Thanks to a likeminded soul, I found the sunflower canvas at Home Goods, last week.  She was walking around with the twin to this one.  We struck up a conversation.  She told me there was one more.  Of course, I went right over and picked it up…just on speculation you know.  I think we inspired another shopper or two. I saw a couple of people looking at our sunflowers; later I saw them going through the canvases.

As it turns out, the sunflower canvas is perfect for the country farmhouse look, evolving in the hearth room.


This photo of a bit of this and that, is a hint of a project, we are working on, and hope to finish this week.

Pat, love your pretty colors in your table setting. I have those little bee glasses, too. Looks like your project pieces are parts that you add to cabinets to make them look like furniture. Kitchen maybe?

Gorgeous table and photos!
Your in-progress project has me intrigued.
Can't wait to see. :)

I love the crisp look of blue, white and yellow. The sunflowers look amazing in the pottery vase.

Pat-When I saw the title of your post I ran right over. This is my favorite color combination! There is not a Home Goods within a hundred miles of here. I may have to start a Facebook campaign--it worked for Betty White :) Love the sunflower canvas and real! The look is coming together! Have a wonderful day!

thestonerabbit said...

Good Morning, Pat! I love your tablesetting....yellow is one of my favorite colors! So, that little table is in your hearth room...and the project pieces will come together and go in that area, too? I'm guessing you already have a fireplace in there...otherwise, I would guess they look like they could be parts to a fireplace mantel and surround. Looking forward to seeing your finished project!
Our Stella's are blooming like mad, too. They were sad last year, but plentiful (so far) this year.

Hope you have a wonderful Sunday! L, Dana

Shoot! I was in Home Goods yesterday and never looked at the art section! Whata wonderful painting. Love your table setting. I have those bowls too. The sunflower holding jar is lovely.

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Anything would taste good when sitting at that table - very pretty!
The pieces for your project look interesting. :)

Stacey said...

Pat, your table is stunning! I love the blue and yellow. Your pictures are just amazing.

I have to tell you. In my front flower bed there are many Stellas in full bloom and sitting in the middle is Saint Fiacre. Beautiful!

Crystal Rose Cottage said...

Pat....Very pretty table setting! I am looking for a sunflower wallhanging/art for a housewarming present for a good friend. Thanks for the info!~Hugs,Patti

Oooo, I love the canvas effect on the one photo!

Table setting is lovely as usual!

Oh Pat, I love those linens, they are just my favorites. I keep looking for some and seem to always miss them. Your dishes and the glasses are all so pretty together. I love, love, love your jar with the sunflowers. They are one of my favorites. The new painting is a wonderful find. So pretty. I look forward to your new project. Thanks so much for joining the party. Hugs, Marty

CollectIn Texas Gal said...

A perfect ColorCombo for the start of Summer. So refreshing and sunny! I'm always so inspired by your settings and photography! I made a quilt from the blue and yellow fabric in your place mats and napkins. I think it's time for it to go on the bed for summer!

Stephanie said...

Gorgeous! These are the quintessential summer colors, aren't they? And I cannot wait to see what you have in store next. You always have such creative ideas! It's official, I want to be you when I grow up!
Have a wonderful week!

Linda@ Lime in the Coconut said...

Always beautiful and inspirational!
Love those little white pots/bowls!

Kris said...

Pat, I love your photos in blue, white and yellow. How fun it is to go in to one of your favorite stores and find just the right items to create a lovely, summery setting. It's even more fun when your selections catch the eye of others and inspire them in joyful directions as well. I especially love your drinking glasses! The bumblebee lends the perfect hint of "the good ol' summertime!
Can't wait to see how your project appears in wonderful vignette and beautifully creative style and talent.

linda said...

There's just something about the combination of blue, white, and yellow that makes me smile. I love it!

Your table setting is beautiful!

Martina said...

Hi Pat you always do the prettiest table settings!! I have the same glasses only mine have a fleur on it instead of a bee.Could your latest project be a new fireplace mantel?? Can't wait to see!!

Linda (Nina's Nest) said...

Beautiful post, Pat. Love what you did to the second photo...looks like a canvas. Also, great thinking on that canvas of the sunflowers - gorgeous. Love everything about that table! Linda

BECKY said...

The yellow and blue was a fave combo of my mother's! She had a stunning guest room decorated with that color scheme.

Your blooms are amazingly gorgeous Pat!! LOVE the endless summer hydrangeas, and that sunflower canvas...I'm going to see if there is one left here!!


Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Blue, white, yellow, my favorite combo Pat!
Even your chair cushions match. So beautiful and so charming!
I love the sunflower print and the centerpiece, perfection every time!

Shelia said...

Hi Dear Pat! Oh, I knew that sunflower painting was new! I love it! I never see anything like this at Home Goods! Your table is gorgeous and looks very Italian with the colors and the sunflowers. Or, maybe it looks French! :)
I'll be waiting to see what your project is!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Brenda@Cozy Little House said...

I adore this look you're going for, Pat! And those bee glasses have always stolen my heart. Love your sweet new banner too!

Cindy said...

I love blue, yellow and white, a real classic combination. I also really like those bee glasses from Nell's Hill. I would love to find some of those, they are so heavy duty. I also adore your Sunflower picture.
Thank you for visiting my blog when you do, I know you have a lot of readers and commenters, but when I see you have left me a comment, it is so special.
Hugs, Cindy S

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Pat, This is my favorite color combination. Your table setting is
lovely and I see you have my favorite little bee glasses. Love the new sunflower painting.

Carolyn said...

Good Morning Pat,
I am jealous you have a Home Goods close by. I love the sunflower canvas! The pottery jar is just beautiful. We had the Sunflower Trail and Festival this past weekend and the sunflowers are outstanding this year.
Beautiful pictures of your beautiful home as always.

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Pat, I love all of your beautiful photographs. I especially like the one of your dishes that has that sharp focus on the tablescape and the soft blur of that very romantic view through your window. Do you get that with a particular lens? I had a Pentax years ago that would do that, but it doesn't seem my digital does. Or maybe it's because I haven't taken the time to figure out all the dials and things. I have a tendency to set it on auto and just shoot. But I always love your photographs.

Lovely post. And I like your sunflowers with your sunflower painting.



Barb~Bella Vista said...

Pat, what talent you possess!!! Your pictures always inspire me and feed my spirit.

I love, love the bee glasses.

Andrea at Opulent Cottage said...

It's so pretty, homey, and cheery at the same time! The sunflower painting is an amazing find. I may have to go tomorrow to look for one!

Mary Lou said...

Pat, I love your photos. May I ask what texture or filter you use? It looks like posterize but I'm not sure..
Thanks Mary Lou

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Beautiful table, LOVE the canvas, and I have to get some of the bee glasses for myself-they are too cute!

Melissa @ The Inspired Room said...

Happy week!

Hi Pat, I love your blue and yellow linens, they are so cheerful looking. Your combination of dishes and cute bee glasses are so pretty! Sunflowers are one of my favorites and they look so nice in your pottery vase! Thank you for sharing!

I have developed a love for blue, white, and yellow. In fact, I made curtains for my living room in those colors. I've never seen sunflowers at a florist. I love them. Also, Love the sunflower canvas.

Your sunflowers (all of them) are so pretty. They really bring the summer inside.

Jeanne said...

Hi Pat, I was wondering if you were back blogging. We were out of town and busy with our Photoshop lessons. They take hours. I have finished 3 and I have 3 to go. I am loving it!!!

I have one bedroom in the cabin that is yellow, blue, and white. I do love those colors together.

Gorgeous photos and and tablescape. I love the sunflowers too. I am sure your project will be worth seeing. Can't wait.

Hope all is well with you and J.
Hugs, Jeanne
