And I do BELIEVE that Royal Copenhagen’s Blue Fluted Full Lace is my favorite blue and white fine china. I just returned from a book event at Quintessentials in Raleigh, NC where I did two Christmas tables in three of Royal Copenhagen’s blue and white patterns. It was a really lovely “Blue Christmas”.
I was able to use three of the Royal Copenhagen blue and white patterns: Blue Fluted Full Lace, Blue Fluted Half Lace, and Blue Fluted Mega! These patterns are lovely mixed together and can make a spectacular Christmas table! Combined with a mix of blue stemware, silver, and Christmas greens, you can create a truly Blue Christmas tablescape.
Historic, yet timeless, Blue Fluted Full Lace is Royal Copenhagen’s very first porcelain dinner service and was adapted in 1775. It is the most intricate and exclusive of their designs.
It takes 1197 brush strokes to paint a Blue Fluted Half Lace dinner plate!
Blue Fluted Mega…a new classic created from an old classic!
It took the visionary young artist Karen Kjaeldgaard-Larsen to take on the legendary Blue Fluted design and add a fresh twist. I love the fresh shapes in this pattern!
There is no limit to my love for these Royal Copenhagen blue and white patterns. Other favorites are Blue Flower Curved, Blue Fluted Plain, Princess, and White Fluted Half Lace. A “Blue Christmas” table set with these patterns can continue to look fresh and classic for every season of the year.

Below is an inspiration board using many of the products I chose at Quintessentials this past week! I have also listed them below for your information.
Debra Rhodes has such a great line of napkin rings and placemats! I used their 15inch blue ruffled placemats, two of their napkin rings (Snowberry Napkin rings and Jingle bell cluster in silver.)
As for stemware, I used a real mix of all of these patterns-
William Yeoward Crystal- Patterns-Celeste in cobalt blue, Minna in sapphire, and Sapphire goblet.
St. Louis crystal – “Bubbles” in dark blue
Varga Crystal-Athens in cobalt, and Saint Tropez in cobalt
Moser crystal –Pebbles in blue and Lady Hamilton in cobalt
I made a crystal “Christmas forest” down the center of the table with a collection of the exquisite Vermont Evergreens from Simon Pearce- with sizes ranging from 20 inches to 4 inches, in both clear and bubble! What a centerpiece statement these made.
So if you have been “an awfully good girl or guy” perhaps Santa Baby will bring you some blue and white from Royal Copenhagen , along with some of these other lovely tabletop products! I certainly hope so!
Enjoy and hope you have a lovely “Blue Christmas”!
