I love Thursdays and the opportunity to visit all the tablescapes in blogland. Some are seasonal - some are whimsical and some are gorgeous. I truly love them all! This week I knew I would be doing more playing with the grandgirls than the dishes -- so I only have a small trayscape of breakfast for one to offer today.
Here's our tray all ready to go upstairs for a lazy breakfast in bed. I loved all those old movies where the butler would softly knock on the bedroom door and arrive with a breakfast tray...open the blinds and announce the beginning of the day (even if it was noon). Wouldn't you just love that?
Looks like a light breakfast today.
I decided we needed to add a rose from the "garden". (there just weren't quite enough here.) While we're eating we can catch up on the news...or just read the comics.
Looks like our menu consists of tea, orange juice and an English muffin with butter and cherry preserves.
Here's our rose plate found last winter in a thrift/antique store. Six plates were $7.50.
This china teacup was a Christmas present years ago from a friend at work. Have you ever noticed how much better tea tastes in a china cup than from a mug? It's true...really!
A small glass of juice and the English muffin served in an antique china toast holder.
An antique cut glass salt cellar is the perfect size for just a bit of cherry preserves.
I hope you've enjoyed a lovely breakfast in bed today.
After I took these pictures I added a plastic fish cup of milk and took this up for my daughter-in-law and granddaughter Stella Grace to share before coming down for breakfast casserole. Stella Grace (age 3) thought that was very fun.
Be sure to stop by and see all the pretty dish settings over at Susan's Between Naps On The Porch -- you'll be glad you did!
I'll be playing with the grandgirls until Saturday.
