Breakfast in the Sun Porch




Today, I'm joining the other tablescapers at Susan's Between Naps on the Porch. We are having breakfast in the sun room today.



I have set the table using another of my vintage tablecloths, which was the inspiration for this tablescape.


I love the reds and blues of this tablecloth.





Here's how I first set up the place setting. I was trying to use all three colors of the tablecloth.

I decided I liked this better using my red chargers, White Gollum dinner plate, Blue Willow smaller plate, and Gollum cereal bowl.




We are having cereal (Special K :) with bananas and blueberries. Yum!





We will have our coffee out of our Hazel Atlas rooster cups.




I'm getting to use my vintage Fire King juice glasses for the orange juice.

Red lantern is from Walmart.





I'm using my vintage rooster planter, too.




One day, I'm going to have curtains for the sun porch. :)



Thanks for stopping by. I loved having you!




Go to Susan's for other beautiful tables.
