~~~A CHEERY Breakfast!!!~~~

Good Morning!!!!!! I wish I could invite you all for breakfast, especially at such a CHEERY table! It has been dreary and rainy here for a few days, (SORRY to those who desperately need the rain) so I wanted to do a bright, cheery table!!!!!. I have been waiting and waiting to use these gorgeous dishes that I WON from our dear friend Gollum, back in the winter!!!! I was looking for the perfect tablecloth to enhance these wonderful dishes. Can you guess where I found it??? This beauty came from KMart!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was so excited to see it hanging on a rack all by itself, it was the only one and the right size!!! Karma???? So, I quickly grabbed it! I didn't even know about a SPECIAL detail til I got it home. More on that below....
 I love to make a little gift for guests. These are just grocery store flowers but they fit the bill. Red roses and white daisies, PERFECT!!!!!

 I STACKED the dishes: the beautiful dinner plate, salad plate and bowl are all from the same set. I LOOOOOVE these dishes!!!!

 I placed the tiny vases inside the bowls.
 I also scattered some rose petals around the table too.
 I used my white chargers under the stack to really highlight the red of the dinner plate.
 HERE is the detail I referred to earlier! A sweet ruffle along the edge of the tablecloth! I didn't know about it til I got it out of the package to iron!!!!! TOO cute!!!!

 I stuck some rose petals into the glass pillar holders too. Just for a bit of interest.

 This is the SUBSTANTIAL mug and I used the Napolean bee juice glasses too.
 I like a mug with a nice big handle to grab.
 Ah, sweet flowers.....

 SIMPLE flatware from Walmart is used for this breakfast. I thought about using my new napolean bee flatware but wanted the comtrast of the red on the tablecloth.
 2 napkins are gathered for a FULL look: a plain red one and this beauty with the detailed corner. I love these napkins too. I placed some petels on the napkins too. Do you think I got a little carried away??? I just got very excited as this table came together!

 Do you see the bee on the glass?
 Candle light, even for breakfast!

 See how beautifully the mug matches the.....
 detail of the tablecloth!
 A birds eye view for you! You may be thinking, "no centerpiece?". I decided the table was busy enough and nothing really FIT. Do we ALWAYS need a centerpiece?????

See how the stems of the pillar holders are twisted? I love that detail too.

 Just a TOUCH of sparkle in the napkin rings. Every table needs a LITTLE sparkle, don't you think?

 These close ups are a bit blurry, it's my camera but they were so pretty I wanted to share. I love roses that are opened a little.

Thanks for stopping by, I so appreciate all your visits!!!!! I will be linking to these wonderful parties!!!!:

  13. I love those dishes! Your tablecloth matches the napkins i used this week isn't that funny - small world! Jennifer

  14. Oh my, this is just unreal. First the dishes are wonderful and what a fabulous treasure to win. You definitely found the right tablecloth. It is stunning and I love the ruffle. The roses, daisies and all of your accessories are so perfectly chosen. This has to be my all time favorite. Thanks so much for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

  15. Pinky, I am green with envy over those lovely dishes -- red is a particular weakness. Love how your paired that charming talbecloth with the red dishes and all the nice details. Wish I were there for breakfast. Joni

  17. Oh how lucky you were to win those dishes! I just love how you put that tablescape together.

    That tablecloth was also a good find. I believe it is from the Country Living brand at Kmart.

  18. Oh my gosh.. I adore this tablecloth I've already emailed my daughter about picking it up to bring when she brings Bailey down.. your table is wonderful... girl I fell in love with everything. I've got to work on getting some red flatware to go with my possible red and white tablecloth... fab pictures Pinky, I know your guests were just as impressed..hugs ~lynne~

  19. I love your new wonderful dishes~ even better since you WON them :-) The ruffled contrasting edge is such a wonderful detail on your beautiful tablecloth! We don't have a K Mart near us anymore or I'd be dashing out to find one!

  20. Amazing post and table decoration, colors, photos!
    I love it!

    Have a great day, kisses:)

  21. This is so pretty! I love the dishes & the tablecloth too.

  22. I'm not sure what I'm drooling over more...the dishes or the tablecloth! I just adore those dishes!

  23. Hi Pinky, it is lovely. All the layers of elements is fabulous. The entire table is so cheerful and inviting. I love it!

    Barb ♥

  24. A cheery table indeed! I cannot get over that tablecloth. I love it.

  25. That cloth was made for those dishes! They look perfect together. I just love that little ruffle too. Such a cherry table! Wonderful color. I agree, we don't always need a centerpiece. Someone once told me that a good artist needs to know when to stop. You did. It is just right!

  26. This looks great. I look forward to seeing you at My Dream Canvas. Take care Anu

  27. Pinky,
    Gorgeous, darling! That ruffle around the bottom of the tablecloth is just too cute!!! There also seems to be a bit of khaki or sage green in the tablecloth! I adore your bee glasses...I have the juice bee goblets that match those! Centerpiece? Hm~m~m...perhaps a big bowl of strawberry muffins! HA! This is just lovely, thanks for sharing your new dishes with us!

  28. love your tablecloth!!! Omg the ruffles just make even more great. I love your dishes. they are soo cool. Red and white perfect for breakfast.. only problem is, you'd still have me there at lunch it's so lovely. xo marlis

  29. This is so cute and cheerful..love the tablecloth! All your red and white dishes are great too! All sorts of lovely details!

  30. Beautiful table...love the dishes!

  31. Beautifully done.

    Love your dishes and table clothe.

  33. Oh My! Too bad it's so late. I'd be headed to K-mart right now. Love, love that tablecloth! I am a red lover, and those dishes are absolutely taking my breath away! I can see why you got a bit carried away with this table setting. The entire thing is gorgeous. I am a new follower. Hopped over from Feathered Nest Friday.

  34. Love your table linens! This would be so cheerful any time of day. But what a great way to start the day off.

    Listen, I have a new series on my blog called: "A Picture is Worth ..." I'm trying to get back to posting pictures about my house, and I'd love it if you'd come by and see the bar in the dining room! :)


  38. I agree I love those dishes, so pretty! I don't have a red and white combo except holiday dishes. Love that you found the perfect tablecloth at Kmart, sometimes you get lucky. Yes, we need the rain, we went 45 days without any rain and I don't even live in the sunbelt! If you get a chance please stop by for our tea time giveaway. Thanks, the Mom at Cottage and Broome.

Thanks you for leaving your lovely comments. xo, Pinky
