Blue & White China without Going Granny?

Good Questions

Q: I love blue and white china and have registered for some Spode blue Italian as well as some gorgeous blue with red Polish porcelain I found on Amazon. I love the dishes, but all of the tablescapes I've seen online are way too gussied up or precious: white tableclothes, napkins spilling out of tacky blue goblets.

I'm afraid of overdoing it. Our aesthetic is much more rustic, rough-hewn wood meets Ligne Roset. Maybe mixing it up a bit will help cut the intensity? Any good examples of using blue and white for the sensibilities of people born a little closer to this side of 1930? Thanks!
