Pink Table for Spring Breakfast
















Today I am delivering a set of divine pink glass cups and saucers to one of my favorite customers- -- so I had to create a breakfast table using these beautiful cups before I let them go to their new home! It's a gorgeous morning in Chicago, so I set breakfast up on the porch. A mixture of pink dishes and vintage crystal are mixed with my mom's sterling. My friend Lynda sent me a sweet little set of gold salt cellars this week, so I thought I would use them for a sugar, coffee bean and chocolate garnish for my coffee this morning. I found this unique grinder blend at Trader Joes of sugar, coffee beans and chocolate and couldn't resist it. It's perfect for topping off whipped cream on your morning coffee. Pink rose biscuits from France are placed in a crystal compote for dipping in the coffee. Orange and cranberry whole wheat flat breads are from Costco. I put them in the toaster to warm them and they puff up and are delicious with cream cheese or butter.. Cherry blossoms from Trader Joes remind us that spring is indeed here! We will be joining www.betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com for Tablescape Thursday. Be sure to visit.

How beautiful your table is and all the wonderful accompaniments you've added. Love the blossoms. Isn't spring one of the best season's of the year??!!

I lived near Chicago for 20 years. Why didn't I find you while I was there!!??

Thank you for sharing such a lovely table. I'm betting it was hard to let those go!

I think that everything about this table is just lovely. Pink is my favorite color, and I agree with the previous comment that it has a lot of romance in it.
