red, white and blue

This is not the tablescape I was going to do, I got distracted by this.
My tablescape was going to be made with these lovely dishes.
I picked them up at an op shop on Monday they were $10 the lot!
I couldn't leave them there.
 They are mixed red, blue and white stripes.
I just love those big bowls, I think they would be perfect to put stuff in for a party.
I had to find somewhere to put them so we could eat at the table and as I didn't really want to rearrange a cupboard to find room I put them here on my cabinet - I thought they may as well look attractive.

I added red checked napkins that I made for B5's Circus birthday
and blue and red water bottles- their lids are undone because they wouldn't fit under the shelf otherwise.

Once I saw the photos up I wasn't happy so went back and tweaked a little.

Added a couple of other white things- small jug and butter dish.

Moved a few things around.

The tea towel under the dishes was 50c from IKEA.

I love the combo of different stripes.

I added a few strawberries...

cheap this week at the fruit and veg...

just right for breakfast, pancakes perhaps?

Crockery- Nautic by  S&P  (salt and pepper)
White Jug- 1.5 L Maxwell and Williams
