We are in the kitchen today...setting the table for breakfast.
And I am using my new wooden tray for the centerpiece. Click HERE for the post on my trayscape. And click HERE for another view of my old table. :-)
It's just a $15.00 tray from Hobby Lobby...but when I saw it I knew that I could use it for many things. You all know that I love to decorate with trays!
Now, Let's set this table.
It is a super simple breakfast setting.
After living in Provence, I developed a love for simple table settings, with white china on rustic tables.
And my table sure is a rustic one...though not an antique.
It has dents and dings from usage, and moving, but that's ok. I have had it for years and years...and maybe it even needs to be refinished.
Rustic table. No placemats. White porcelain dishes. Tea towels for napkins. Simple centerpiece. Water goblets.
There was a time when I would have considered my old table ready to give away...but with farmhouse and rustic being so popular these days, my old table still has a home here.
And here you have my simple breakfast table.
All I have to do is add the food.
Besides being pretty, this batch of navel oranges (sitting on my pretty ironstone platter) has been so juicy and tasty!
I love having a window in the breakfast area, especially when the sun is bright and shiny at breakfast time.
I like to start the day with sunshine, and a cup of coffee. You too? :-)
A little French lesson
