Welcome to the 335th Tablescape Thursday!
It’s been a long time since Jean-Claude made an appearance in a table setting.
The last time he appeared, he was a waiter in a little French cafe. 😉
The cold, cold weather we’ve been having has me dreaming of big hearty breakfasts with fresh eggs, homemade biscuits, grits, pancakes and bacon. Shhh, don’t say the “bacon” word too loud because you-know-who might hear us.
The whole time I was putting this table together, I kept singing the phrase “Farm Country Breakfast.” Has there been a commercial running lately with that phrase, because otherwise I have no idea why that was stuck in my head the entire time I was working on this table.
So, I scrawled it across the slate Jean-Claude is holding.
I still haven’t opened the Blis syrup. I’m saving it for a special occasion when I have overnight guests.
Remember the denim napkin rings I made a while back? I put them to work in our country breakfast tablescape.
These denim napkin rings are made from old jeans and they are a super easy DIY project to make.
You’ll find the tutorial for making them here: Make Denim Napkin Rings From Recycled Jeans. They also look great in 4th of July table settings.
I couldn’t resist using these cute rooster dishes in this country farm setting. Perhaps they could hold fruit or a big buttery biscuit. The salad plate would be great to use for the pancakes to keep the syrup from attacking the eggs, grits and bacon. Gosh, I’m hungry!
I forgot to take a picture of the Rooster dinner plates so I snagged a photo from a previous table setting. The pattern is Fall Rooster by Maxcera. I found them for $2 each in Marshalls several years ago.
Each place setting has its own little milk bottle, of course filled with fresh milk straight from the cows this very morning. 😉 A little section on the milk bottles could be painted with chalkboard paint; then they would do double duty as place card holders.
Each place setting has a little bottle of Vermont maple syrup for our blueberry pancakes made with fresh-picked blueberries.
I’ve created several breakfast settings here at BNOTP over the years. You can find them all here: Breakfast Table Settings

If you are participating in Tablescape Thursday, please be sure to add your permalink below, and not your general blog address.
To get your permalink, click on your post name, then copy and paste the address showing in the address bar, into the “url” box when you link up. You’ll need to include a link in your post back to the party to link up and participate.
That’s so visitors to your blog will be able to find the party and the other Tablescape Thursday participants. Requiring a link back also prevents businesses from linking up to sell their products. (Yep, that really happens, unfortunately.)
Please, don’t add your post name/blog name ALL IN CAPS…it tends to create big spaces between the rows of links.
Please do not link up table settings that were just recently shared in the last few weeks for Tablescape Thursday.
