Perhaps you could set the table…

To make the morning a bit more manageable.

TIP: I wasn’t using a tablecloth as I wanted the wood to show, but I didn’t want the flowers and serving pieces directly on the wood, so I used an extra napkin and laid it flat on the table.

Tricia said...

What a lovely, romantic setting for a breakfast! Empty nesters could pull this off, but you folks with kids still at home would have to figure something out!

You have so many interesting, pretty pieces in your collections.
I love the paisley napkins too. Just the right amount of light and dark on them.
Is that a little rack for toast? I would like to find one of those somewhere.

So pretty! All of the plates are wonderful, but the glasses are amazing, especially the smaller one. It is so unusual. Your husband should feel very special. Hope you both have a happy day tomorrow!

This is so pretty. I love when you set this table by the french doors. Always a treat to see.

Let's start with the drapes ... please send them to me ... and I think starting the day with a special table is a wonderful idea. Everything here is beautiful. Linda

Beautiful napkins and placemats! This is such a sweet way to start the day. I think we had the same idea with our table placement this week! Dianne

Marlis said...

Gorgeous.. I loved the "peeling" of the layers, each just as beautiful as the one before. Love the glassware too.. So pretty and such a very refined way to start the day. Happy Valentine's! xo marlis

A perfect pink Valentine confection! Love the softness, the gentleness in this design. I'm so sad for Kathleen, and I'm so happy to know that she has the blessing of a friend like you. Cherry Kay

What a way to start this special day! I love the way you layered so many plates, beautiful. I love your ceramic toast rack and all the little details and touches...my morning didn't look like that! I do have plans for an intimate setting this evening, however! Happy Valentine's

Lulu said...

What a wonderful way to start the day...wish my hubby had thought of that idea!

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

Oh my heart skipped a beat upon viewing this pink and white goodness!

I adore those wee S & P shakers.

You are a gal after my own heart. Thank you SO very much for linking up this Valentine goodness!

Alycia Nichols said...

I wish I could get my husband up early enough to enjoy something like this before he dashes out the door in the morning before work! He lays in that bed 'til the last possible second, so I always just hand him a breakfast sandwich of some sort as he whizzes out the back door. This is truly a romantic table that would make any red-blooded American guy call in sick for the day! ;-)

Babs said...

What a beautiful way to start Valentine's Day...or any day. Great tip to put the napkin under the plates. Hope you had a great Valentine's Day.
Hugs..Babs

Sue (Someones Mom) said...

Oh how pretty! I also set a breakfast table (that we did not use). My husband loves his alone time in the morning with his book, coffee and toast! If I showed up in the middle of that, he would pretend to be nice about it:) I did however take the tablescape apart and redo it for dinner last night and we did enjoy dinner at the pretty table and loved it!

Sarah said...

Sorry to be so late to this beautiful post. Hope you and your sweetheart had a special Valentine's Day. This table for two is full of romance. The stack of dishes and those pretty pink linens make me giddy. '-)
And those meringue cookies..........did you make those? They are the perfect treat!

Designs By Pinky said...

OMGoodness, now this table would put ANYONE "in the mood" for love;) It is all gorgeous, I LOVE the chargers!!! Can you tell me where you got them??? Love the juice glasses too. I never make alot of fuss on Valentines but THIS has made me want to next year! XO, Pinky

Denise said...

This is so pretty! I love this intimate breakfast tablescape! Pink is my preferred color at Valentine's, rather than red, so this tablescpape really appeals to me. I love your paisley linens and the various shades of pink you've used on the table. Just beautiful!!

Did you receive the e-mail I sent with the information about the Dept. 56 village tree from my December post? I was afraid it might have gone into your Junk e-mail file.
