Decorating with Blue and White Outdoors

Today is the April Blue and White Bash at The Pink Pagoda, and I've decided to take the party alfresco. If you have been following me on Instagram, you may have noticed that I recently scored some massive blue and white planters and vases via my ongoing South Florida thrifting adventures. I plan on using them on our patio, which I will begin to focus on decorating after the One Room Challenge. For inspiration, I have collected the following images depicting lovely blue and white porcelain outdoors. I am also eagerly following Paige at The Pink Clutch, who is decorating her patio in blue and white for the One Room Challenge Linking Event. Let's take a look at some blue and white alfresco inspiration...

  3. Gorgeous pictures, Andrea. Now I’ve got a giant case of transferware-itis after seeing all of the oversized ginger jars and vases. It sure is fun to dream in blue and white.

  5. Blue and white is perfect out doors. I saw your score on IG and I am sure I am not the only one who was more than a little envious. Lucky you!

  6. Wowsa! You found so many great pics. I added one small pot to my deck dining table last year and it's my favorite thing out there. They are definitely addictive and I'm looking for more to add to my deck for this season.

  7. My thoughts are I LOVE IT and my outdoors (when I put everything out for the season) is that it is always a home run..looks stunning against natures backdrop! Beautiful post....

  8. Absolutely stunning! Although I would worry about the gardener breaking all that glorious blue and white!

    Have a fabulous week! xoxo

  9. Just in time for spring. It's a must! I have a few garden stools year round in blue and white sprinkled in the garden. Love it, love the images.

  10. OMG!!! I think my love affair with you grows daily. I am so excited that you are following my porch makeover! I am over the moon excited about yours!!! I love Lilly and the fact that you have her original desk. I die!! The third picture you posted is my inspiration picture and the couch I am using is identical! I just scored a table so similar to the one in the picture and I can't wait to get started! The next time we are visiting family in Palm Beach we must meet for drinks, dinner and thrifting! xo

  17. I wish I had an outdoor space that looked like those! Blue & white is beautiful outside. But that means I would need more. I mean, I need some inside AND outside, so that justifies a bigger collection, right?!

  22. Blue and white porcelain is much like fine jewelry. A little goes a long way. When putting together a suite of garden jewels always remember "Less Is More." That said, I absolutely adore the idea of using blue and white pieces in the landscape.

  23. My blue and white porcelain collection is too precious to me to chance it being broken outside.

  24. I think blue and white looks amazing out doors.. Cylindrical or ginger jars.. Mauve blue flowers in them or pink...
