Welcome to the 21st Tablescape Tuesday!
A breakfast tablescape awaits you below. In addition, you will find links to many wonderful tablescapes that have been especially prepared for your visit this day.
Scene from a French Cafe…
Speaking in a heavy french accent, you are greeted by your waiter, Jean Claude…who with a grand wave of his right arm, says, “Right this way Madame and Mademoiselle…I have your breakfast all ready and waiting for you. Please excuse this napkin…I mean scarf, the boss is making me wear. She insist I coordinate with the tablescape…silliest thing I’ve ever heard. Quel désastre!”
Breakfast for two…Quelle bonne idée !
Creamware is Butler’s Pantry, Gourmet by Lenox; Fruit-patterned china is Melina by Villeroy & Boch.
Que c’est délicieux!
Ahhh, yes…I would like to introduce my tablescape consultant, extraordinaire…Monsieur Ecureuil. The shutters in this little french cafe’ were wide open as I prepared this tablescape. Mr. Squirrel…uh…I mean Monsieur Ecureuil, sat and watched my every move to make sure I was doing a good job.
Jean Claude looks quite pleased with his table setting.
Found these “French” juice glasses at Williams-Sonoma many years ago…Parfait!
Love how the fruit design works with the Melina china.
“All happiness depends on a leisurely breakfast.” John Gunther
I love a layered look so I’m using both placemats and chargers in this breakfast setting.
(Lace chargers are from Horchow, online…purchased around a year ago.)
This was the first time I’ve ever used these egg cups.
I’ve had quite a few folks asking where I found Jean Claude. He came from Home Depot Expo quite a few years ago.
