A Country Breakfast Tablescape


Good Morning! Did you sleep well? How was it sleeping in that darn twin bed?
Did you take a midnight swim?

We'll start breakfast with granola this morning. Would you like some juice and coffee?

Notice my willow chargers from Ballard Designs? I know, this is the third time I've used them. I'm getting my money's worth.

They go perfectly with the new barstools found at the flea market in Alameda.

Notice the etched juice glasses? They are a recent find from a cute little store in Healdsburg.

Help yourself to some fruit!

Would you like some sourdough toast?

We also have farm fresh eggs from our neighbor's chickens! How would you like them prepared?

To go with, we have some special bacon from Bovolo Restaurant that we picked up in Healdsburg.

Hey, I just realized the juice, napkins, chair and pillow all match!

Hope you enjoyed your good old fashioned country breakfast!

Let's sit, finish our coffee and decide what we want to do today.
Would you like to do a little antiquing? We can visit some wineries too!
Or, we can always just hang out by the pool......

*******

Coffee cups from Crate and Barrel
White plates, napkins and flatware from Pottery Barn
Willow Chargers from Ballard Designs
Cabbage leaf bowls from Ross
Juice glasses from The Olive Leaf in Healdsburg


I'm linking up to Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.

Then I'm joining Michael for Foodie Friday at Designs by Gollum.

Thanks ladies for hosting!

A pretty place to sit and eat. It sounds good except for the granola. A day of antiquing & sipping wine at the winery sounds great.

Love your barstools and your chargers. Actually, I love more, but I will stop at those two.

I so heart your kitchen.

Thank you for the great ideas. Father's Day is coming so I could use a few ideas for spoiling my husband.

Lori E said...

I slept great thank you. And the breakfast was just perfect.
Antiquing is a given with you I think and of course I am always up to visit a winery...or two. The poolside will be perfect for a little antipasta later in the evening.
I am having a wonderful time.
Thank you .

Johanna said...

Delores, thank you for this nice breakfast. Granola and Coffee is great. Yes, everything is perfect on this table. The barstools and the chargers look as if they are made by the same company. And tell us the truth, did you mix your juice exactly with oranges, lemons and pink grapefruits, until it matches so exactly with the napkins? Truly not? LOL. But it is exactly the same color. And looks so inviting.
Thank you for your nice comment - I always love it.
Greetings, Johanna

Sherry said...

What a wonderful breakfast. I love your willow chargers, the candlesticks, the chairs, and the cake stand. It all flows with the same textures and colors. It is very pleasing, and then the colors on the bowls and the napkins is just perfect.

Nancy said...

Love your barstool finds! They look perfect with your chargers and add such a warm, cozy feel to the area. I love that giant butter display to...I forget what exactly they are called but I had an opportunity to purchase one a few years back and ewww I could kick myself for not getting it! As always, it's so much fun coming to your house!

Sweet Bee Cottage said...

Why yes my dear, I would love some granola with a wee bit of orange juice. Sounds divine. And yes I slept very soundly until the birds began tweeting in the tree outside my window. But oh what a wonderful way to wake up. You have the most welcoming home here. Thank you! :)

I could never get tired of seeing those chargers. They are so good looking, and you're right, they look like they are made to go with those great bar stools!

Beautiful kitchen! I'm coveting those stools, I have been searching for grey wicker ones online and the closest ones I can find are in Jakarta...I'm guessing the shipping might be high ;)! Thanks for your comment!

Londen @ Sixty-Fifth Avenue said...

Love your kitchen and everything you have set out. The barstools and light are amazing! Where did you find the light over your beautiful island?

Sarah said...

What a delightful breakfast! Love the look of the chargers with the barstools and the colors of the place setting are perfect for your wonderful kitchen space. I'm slowing adding pieces of the green cabbage dishes when I find them. Thanks for sharing these beautiful photos. I'm behind in my visits so am hanging out here tonight visiting some of your previous posts. Sheer joy! ~ Sarah
