For my birthday in October, my dad gave me 8 snack/dessert plates and coffee sups. He found them at a local resale store in Florida. I thought it was so great that I even have my dad looking at things for my tablescapes. I thought that they would be perfect for a simple breakfast of scones, fruit, juice and coffee. I started the table with a crocheted runner that a good friend gave me. I told her that it is just "on loan". Now that she will see how pretty it is on the table, I think she should come get it back and use it on her gorgeous table.
Placemats and napkins are kept very simple. I opted to avoid using color, so that the colors of the fruits on the dishes would stand out.
I used sprigs of faux raspberries and blackberries along the runner.
The juice pitcher and matching glasses were a
wedding gift back in the 70's.

For just a touch of elegance, you can always add a little silver. The coffee server was found in my in-laws garage and the sterling cream and sugar were my mother's.
Silverplate flatware from Ebay that you've seen on many of my tables.
No candlelight this week. Even I can't justify candles for breakfast!
The coffee is ready...wish you were here!
