Tabletop Tuesday: Memorial Day Breakfast

I hope everyone had a safe and wonderful holiday weekend! We didn't do too much here at Le Beau Paon. My father-in-law was in town visiting for the weekend, we went to a movie with my mother-in-law and Erik's stepfather and we had a cookout and poolside party at my mother's house with my sisters, brothers-in-law and my niece and nephews.
Because I had a house guest, I used it as an opportunity to try out new recipes and also play around with table settings. (LOL!!! )
I made a lovely breakfast for us all on Sunday morning and even managed to make a simple table with a patriotic flavor, which I will be linking with Marty at A Stroll Through Life's Tabletop Tuesday!

I remembered that I had some appetizer plates in the shape of red stars that were a Christmas gift a few years ago, which I paired with my Spode blue transferware, white vintage linen place mats and my white Pottery Barn napkins with a red monogram.
We had yogurt parfaits in clear footed dessert bowls; vanilla yogurt with raspberries and granola and just a little bit of honey on top.
I had also made this yummy breakfast casserole. Diced ham, egg, green onions and Roma tomatoes on a hash brown bottom; with lots of cheese! This was a Pampered Chef recipe I got from a booklet I received at a party.  Yummmmmyyy!!
I also made cinnamon buns and served them on my vintage Fenton hobnail milk glass cake pedestal. These were so easy to make and delicious! They are made using ready-made breadstick dough. I got this recipe also from Yvonne at Stone Gable. You can click HERE to get the recipe.

Thanks for stopping by!
