Birthday Breakfast at the Junction

June is an especially busy month. There are recitals and graduations to attend. Of course a wedding or two. And the end of the school year always brings Field Day and outings that were postponed due to the long snowy winter - they are crammed in there too.
However in the excitement of all the endings and beginnings, my family always pauses the third weekend of June to have a very personal celebration that is always shared by three members of my family. My younger daughter and I have birthdays three days apart that bookend Fathers Day. We have gotten very good about sharing our "special" day with each other - it just means more presents to open, more good food to share with family and friends, and it seems to span the entire weekend. Lot's of fun. 
Today I decided to set a Pretty Pink tablescape for the ladies. Dad will have his day, don't you worry.  
Stop in to see the table - I'm off to buy the goodies!

Lots of pink going on here and rose patterns too
Perfect for the ladies Birthday Breakfast

The topiary are a hold over from
my pink phase long ago

The little rose cereal bowls as well as the salad
plates were from Ross a few years back

Under them is a clear glass gold trimmed
dinner plate which I found this year at
GW in Annapolis - my favorite haunt.
I think they were $2.00 each!

Pretty pink etched glasses from HomeGoods
will add elegance to the OJ served this morning

The swan centerpiece was made by yours truly
during my ceramics class adventures more
years ago than I care to remember

This little covered dish thingy was a steal
for $1.00 -
I thought it was just the sweetest thing -"y".

Along with OJ, we will of course have coffee.
I must have my coffee!

And even though it is just breakfast, there
should always be a touch of crystal.
Today I am using the candle holders
from my older daughter.

And yes.... there is a pitcher. LOL

I'm off to do little shopping....
Fathers Day is up next!

Thanks so much for taking time to drop by my little blog.
