This week I thought it would be fun to do a Tablescape for breakfast. Something cheerful and bright. Simple, yet fun.
I picked a cherry theme. I saw this material and knew right away I wanted to use it for a Tablescape.
But, rather then make a tablecloth out of it, I decided to make two runners. That way, it's not so formal but still adds that pop of color for the table.
I used my big red plates. I sure have gotten a lot of use out of these. Also, the red flatware that I have used many times too.
I found these cute cherry plates at TJ Maxx and knew they would be perfect for this setting. Plus they were only $2.99 a plate so how could I pass that up?
I used a cute little glass that my friend gave me as part of my Christmas gift last year. Rather then use it for a drink, I'm going to put a fresh fruit salad in it.
This sweet little red and white polka dot pitcher was found at TJ Maxx also. It was in the clearance section for $2.99 also. I just added a little bit of the fabric on the handle and added some white hydrangeas from my garden.
The little cherry salt and pepper shakers came from Debra's Cottage. I love that shop! So many unique things there.
The double runners also serve as place mats.
I love these glasses. I got them at Debra's Cottage awhile ago too. Little cherries are hand painted.
Now I surely won't be having wine with breakfast but I will enjoy my juice in this glass.
The cherry plates have a slight wave to them. You can sort of see it here in this picture.
I just had to show you another shot of these cute salt and pepper shakers. I love them.
For napkins I used the same material as the runners. These are very easy to make and I recommend you try making your own if you have not yet done so. You don't even have to sew them. You can use iron hem tape.
