Magnolia and Ferns

For breakfast this morning, I chose magnolia dishes and asparagus fern as my theme. I added a wonderful Goose Creek Candle that I just got in the mail yesterday!  I won it ...more on that later!

I love just a simple floral design for the breakfast table. I tried my hand at painting some mason jars the other day and I really like the look!

We normally start our day with a cup of coffee.  The glasses I am using for juice are a very pale yellow.

We will just have toast on this beautiful plate, we have a very simple breakfast.

Our little teacart that we rescued from the trash!

I thought it would add a little fun to the table to use the newspaper funnies for placemats. Just a way to recycle and add a little fun to the table!  The plastic handled silverware are from the 50's.

We have cereal for breakfast almost every morning, add a little milk, splenda, and a few slices of banana!

Love the teacups!

This is a beautiful tablecloth that my mother had.

A little chenille pillow for Howard back.  BTW, he will probably have his back surgery in late Sept.

Cute little salt and pepper shakers.  I hope you have enjoyed seeing my breakfast table!


Marty is having a great party!

  3. Beautiful table, I like the painted jars too. Looks very relaxing and calming, would love to sit at your table.

  4. What a lovely table to sit at to enjoy your breakfast! So nice that you go to the trouble to make it special!

  5. What a lovely breakfast. I never have enough time or energy to get that extravagant first thing in the morning. How I admire you and your efforts and I'm sure it is greatly appreciated by those sitting down to the fruit of your labor.

  6. What a lovely table to start your day. I love the dishes and I really love the flatware. We spend so much time with decorating our dinner tables, you've shown how wonderful it is to give the same attention to our breakfast tables. Lovely!

  8. Penny, I love your beautiful china. I have not seen that pattern before. It looks so good with the lace tablecloth. Smiles, Susie

  10. Love the asparagus fern, how fun to put it in the jar and your dishes and tablesetting are gorgeous. Love that crochet piece. Thanks for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

  11. The plates are adorable. But the most things catches my eyes were your chairs, pillows and crocheted runner/tablecloth. Adorable.

    Happy day.
