Today's table setting is for a simple spring breakfast or coffee. No salad forks, no tower of stacked plates, just keeping it colorful and cheery on this rainy day. I found the table runner at TJ Maxx and I fell in love with it. Most of the time I buy table linens because they are on sale. This one, was coming home with me no matter what...lucky for me it was only $12.99.
I really like using round placemats when I use a table runner and I happened to have a perfect green shade to match the runner. The "chargers" are dinner plates marked only with a "B". The assorted salad/dessert plates are Garden Bouquet from Home/Studio, a Kohls purchase a couple years ago. I added small stemware for juice and nice big WalMart mugs for coffee. The flatware is Wm. Rogers silverplate.
Of course we must have cream and sugar...
...and something sweet, served on my
mother-in-law's Fostoria cake server.
Vintage napkins and pastel napkin rings finish the look.
I know some of you don't like Annalee dolls, but I do.
I love this little sweetheart!
I finally cut the pussy willows, today...in the rain.
They look like wet cat fur.
I am counting on the fact that they will dry
and be nice and fluffy again by tomorrow!
I just had to share this picture of Zoe. She will be 6 months old in 4 days...time for a little surgery soon. She is very smart (beagles can tell time, I swear they can) and she can stretch that neck to reach almost anything in the house. She still is either wild or sleeping...and seems to have stopped growing so she is just the size we hoped for. She is one spoiled puppy!
