Setting the Summer Chinoiserie Table

Setting a beautiful summer Chinoiserie table does not require Chinoiserie dinnerware, as this lovely example by Michelle Nussbaumer for Veranda above demonstrates. Use straw placemats, your white china, and add blue and white Chinoiserie accents like these Blue and White Qing Chinese Emperors I featured in my new Houzz Ideabook (click on the widget in my sidebar), or small ginger jars used with their lids and without as vases. The one below is available at Pearl River Mart.


  1. Hello I like your blog, can I borrow some photos from you? LOVE/C

  2. The lighting effects are perfect on the table scape.So inviting.
