Easy, non-fussy tablescapes are a must for breakfast. This one doesn't even have flowers.
I put this one together on the drop-leaf table in the bar of our house. It has a French feeling with the heavy linen and roosters.
This combination of red and camel is simple and easy to use.
This set of linens is one of my very favorite. It is a heavy linen fabric that really feels like French ticking. The napkins are so luxurious and hug. I used a simple woven napkin ring from World Market with them.
This flatware is a twisted resin. I can't remember where they came from, but the color is perfect here.
The bottom plate is from Sear's Country Living Collection. I was walking through there to get a gift certificate, and I just "happened" to stroll into the homegoods department. This is the Belgian Rose pattern.
Here's a close-up of the rim. This photo makes it look a bit grey, but it really was a great match.
The smaller plate, cereal bowl, and coffee mug are from Ballard's. All the edges are scalloped. Again, the color in this photo is a bit orange, but they are a deep, tomatoey (is that a word?) red.
The coq plate is also from Sear's Belgian Rose collection. You can't tell in this picture, but those polka dots you see are camel, which also match the linens.
Here's how the plates stack up. You can also check out the wonderful texture of the tablecloth.
I love, love, love these Juliska juice glasses. They are a gift from a dear friend who has exquisite taste. She is, from time to time, a very welcome guest here. You'd welcome her, too, with gifts like this, wouldn't you?
Take a good look at these babies!!!
Pottery Barn had these placecard holders on sale a few weeks ago. Perfect for this table.
Mr. Red Rooster jumped into my cart at Old Time Pottery. Or is it Olde Tyme Pottery? Whatever. He sure holds court on this table.
I added two dishes of brown and white eggs in place of flowers. They are in a nest of raffia. Good colors again! These dishes are from the floral warehouse, but you could find something similar almost anywhere. I think you can figure out where to get the eggs!
I also love these small pewter pieces from Pierre Deux. This sweet cow cream pitcher catches any drips in his own bowl.
And these chickens (or maybe geese) hold salt and pepper so sweetly. I keep this by my stove top and use it every time I cook.
This is a great room for breakfast. The sun pours in through the windows and doors, as long as breakfast isn't too early!
A toile chicken. Love it!
I'm linking up with Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for her Tablescape Thursday blogparty. Please go over there and see some dazzling tables.
