I can see from the news that everyone is suffering through some of the coldest days we have had in years. Record breaking as they say in some parts of the country, and coupled with the five snow storms we have had here, I don't want to venture of out of the house.
This is a good time to have a big country breakfast with the family and I knew just the tablescape for the occasion!
Country Breakfast at the Junction -
Anyone who knows me, knows I have a thing for roosters. Today I am setting the breakfast table with one of my tried and true friends.
The red and white colors of this beautiful Rooster
worked well with the new Rooster
dishes I found at TJ Maxx just before Christmas
On the same day, I found this tablecloth.
It's one of the new vinyls from Waverly
perfect for informal family gatherings
and the pattern is just delicious!
Here you can see why I was so excited.
The colors are perfect paired with
my little Longaberger Pottery bowls
and everyday red handle flatware
The best part of it all...
Yes! The Rooster dishes!
I added the white cereal bowl from the
Gourmet Basics Collection
Notice how the textured weave of the Mikasa
matches the transferware basket pattern of the dinner plate?
I love when it comes together like this don't you?
Lastly - the pattern on the dinner plate.
I also think nothing is better than a big cup
of coffee to start my day,
so the Mikasa mug was used in place of glasses.
Although my family needs no map to their seat,
I couldn't resist these little place card
holders from Pottery Barn -
on clearance they are even cuter!
Time for your close up!
Fun little pieces like these make all the difference
Thanks for stopping by today. As always I enjoyed your visit.
I hope you start your day off with a good breakfast!
This week I will be joining others who would like to share with you their beautiful tablescape designs.
