Singing the Blues & Yellows with Pfaltzgraff Madeline


I’m singing the blues and the yellows,

at the table with

 Pfaltzgraff Madeline Dinnerware!


Madeline Dinnerware by Pfaltzgraff adds a bright and cheery note to the table with its palette of vivid blues & yellows.

A diamond pattern created from a crisscrossing border lends a hand painted feeling and whimsy to the stoneware.


For a centerpiece, I filled an urn with

hydrangeas, alstroemeria, button mums

 and lemons, set on a natural seagrass tray.


I added lemons to the floral using bamboo skewers

for an additional pop of yellow and

since I like a serving of fruit with my flowers :)



Chargers are layered for texture and color~ a distressed scrolled white set provides a transition from the plates to textured woven set, to marry the tray.


A tablecloth with lemons and a patterned floral stripe

in blue, provides a cheery foundation for the table.


Forte flatware by International Silver

offers a teardrop shape and a gently ridged edge

for definition and a simple, clean design.

    Very pretty Mary, I love the tablecloth and fun blue glasses! Looks like you’re enjoying some nice weather, rained the last 3 days here and to add insult to injury I caught a cold… bummer. Have a good week:@)

    I love blue and yellow. It makes for such a happy tablescape … just like this one. Gorgeous centerpiece.

    Love it all! Yellow and blue are my favorite combination. So spring like!
    Have a great week. Maybe spring will show up😄

    Another wonderful Pfaltzgraff table, Mary. I really like this pattern. I love that Madeline isn’t flowery, yet still a traditional look. I am once again compelled to visit Pfaltzgraff.

    Such a wonderful and cheery pattern….love it!

    What a cheery mix of patterns and blue and yellow! Your floral arrangement is gorgeous on that woven tray and the lemons and mum heads tucked here and there are delightful. I love them tucked in the gingham napkins in the cups :) Beautiful pattern on the china~

    So bright and springy! Loved the shot with your beautiful lake in the background. Another grey day for us here in the northeast. We are so hungry for spring and warmer temps!

    What a lovely and cheery way to wake up this morning! Loved the blue and yellow and am really tempted by the Pfaltzgraff…

    Beautiful setting. Love that tablecoth and pinning your lemon floral piece :-)

    Oh, bestill my heart! I am sorely tempted to change my everyday dinnerware to this pattern. I LOVE your setting and the dishes you have shared. Beautiful! Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

    Blue and yellow is a happy combination, and the Madeline pattern is lovely, Mary. The criss cross pattern reminds me of the early Quimper patterns which are some of my favorites. Dining at this pretty table beside the lake view looks like a perfect setting all around.

    Fresh and lively…a beautiful sign of Spring…I’ve always liked blue but had never appreciated how well it combined with yellow until I received the book Monet’s Table…then I fell in love. Lovely table, Mary!

    I am going to have to invest in a dictionary of synonyms, because I can’t keep using the word “gorgeous” on every post where I leave a comment. Looking at these photos makes me feel like I’ve taken a trip to France — so sunny and cheerful. The centerpiece is beautiful (I just bought the basket and think I need another it is SO versatile) — the flowers, that VASE! The cups, the dishes, those chargers that I am major-ly crushing on. (Big heavy sigh here.) Stunning!

    I love the lemon yellows with the French blues. :D

    You always have the prettiest flowers in your posts. You have a great view, too! Was in the local Home Goods last week, and they had a big blue tin with birds on it on the right side (kitchen section) of the store that reminded me so much of you and your garden shed. I believe it had ‘cotillion’ on it. If you get a chance, you should take a look. ;o) Looking forward to trying your pimiento cheese deviled eggs, too…sounds interesting!

    Beautiful and what a mood lifter! Along with pillows, I’m on a bit of a tray kick and I love this woven one.

    I love this pattern and ADORE this tablecloth!!!!! It is gorgeous! I have always LOVED that urn too. Another table done to perfection!

  25. March 31, 2014 at 7:46 pm

    Blue and yellow has never looked prettier. Hope spring is well on its way to you, my dear!

    You nailed this beautiful color combination. Love the Dinnerware pattern.
    When you have sumptuous lemons, tuck them into your floral arrangement.
    It is beautiful , Mary

    What a gorgeous, gorgeous Spring tablescape! The colors are so vibrant and “happy!” And, I love the view, too!

    I am going to send the link to this post to my cousin, Madeline. She is one of my favorite cousins, and I think she needs this pattern in her kitchen!!!!!

    I love the texture of the rims! That feature really adds a lot to the overall design! You did a phenomenal job of mixing patterns, too! The checked napkins are so sweet, and I just love the color combo! Perfect for Spring!!!

  31. April 2, 2014 at 11:24 am

    As usual I want to dive into your pictures and sit down and eat lunch with you! WOW it looks gorgeous!! I would love to have you join me for my Centerpiece Wednesday linky party and share this post with us. Come on over 

  32. April 2, 2014 at 8:16 pm

    That tablecloth and the dishes are a perfect compliment to each other! I love the combination. Your whole post is sunny and bright and makes me happy!!! Thanks for creating a beautiful bright spot.

  33. April 3, 2014 at 10:36 am

    Mary, if I had room for another set of dishes, I would order these in a heartbeat. They look great with our wooden chargers.

  34. April 3, 2014 at 11:17 am

    I love the blues and yellows! Reminds me of summer and how I wish the weather were warmer in Montana right now :) I recognize those chargers instantly from Pier 1 Imports — I got myself a set last week because they are on sale!

  35. April 3, 2014 at 1:13 pm

    I just love everything. Simply gracious. Thanks for sharing.

  36. April 3, 2014 at 1:51 pm
