Tablescape Thursday: Bright Breakfast

Despite a busy holiday weekend, I found time to put together a fun little breakfast table.......

I thought it would be fun to use the primary colors found on this vintage tablecloth. I sort of "built" this table around the tablecloth and the yellow bucket of daisies and Kermit pom mums that I used as a centerpiece.

These are actually fresh flowers; about 2 weeks ago I went to a bridal shower luncheon and these buckets were centerpieces on the tables. After the shower, the hostess asked some of the guests if they wanted to take one home. I can't believe that after 2 weeks it still looks so fresh!

Another pedestal that matches some of the plates is perfect for holding a selection of pastries or scones.

I loved the mix of patterns, both fun and fancy..........

Each place setting gets an egg cup for a soft-boiled egg.

I love these vintage plates; they have no markings on them, so I have no idea the name or maker. I had found another whole set of these, including the dinner plates and a serving platter at an antique store, but foolishy didn't buy them then. I went back about 2 weeks later and of course they were gone. Now I know that when I see something that I love, I should just buy it right away!!!

When I saw this tablecloth, I knew I had to have it.

Beautiful vintage tablecloth! I love the vintage plates. I know exactly what you mean about reservation, just buy it or forget it because if you love it, someone else will, too!

First, I just adore the tablecloth. The mix of styles and patterns works beautifully together.

A beautiful table and I like how you pulled all the colors together -- that's a gift. Love all of your vintage things especially the blue and white!

The tablecloth is gorgeous. Love all the colors in it. And the little cow milk thing is very cute. I've seen them in white before, but never in blue transferware.

Love your vintage plates. Sometimes the best things are unmarked.

You've created a wonderful melange of color, texture, and pattern. I adore the exotic bird plate. You might check out Royal Cauldon in a Replacements.com search. I don't know for sure, but the coloring reminds me of that maker. Thank you for sharing your delightful design. Cherry Kay
