I love setting the table in the dining room and pretending I'm having some girlfriends over for a wonderful, lazy-day brunch. I usually get the urge a few times a year - (summer, fall, winter, spring..maybe??) It's fun to pull out some dishes and we don't use everyday and make the table look special. So here's my take on a spring table setting~~
These little bird salt & pepper shakers came with my hubby when I married him.. isn't that sweet? He actually picked these up somewhere (probably a yard sale) and decided to bring them home one day - love it!
Fresh berries in little sundae cups to start.. then you'll have to imagine the rest of the food ;) (And, can you see the very cool bronze bust right there on the buffet? Scored that at Atlanta ReStore! I love it!)
I have so much fun setting a table - finding different pieces to go together, like the ceramic rooster and the small rooster & chicken plates. The plates were a gift on Christmas from my bestie :) I found Mr. Rooster at a thrift store (surprise, surprise).
I really enjoy this room, too - in case you hadn't noticed...
Here's the place setting - it's made up of stuff from all over -
The gold flatware just came back into my life after a long time away. I'm holding onto it for my daughter. A search of the interwebs came up with nothing similar. Gold flatware is out there - just none with this shape/pattern
Corn husk place-mat - Wal-Mart - $3 each!
Black & white charger was also a gift from my bestie a few years back - she found them at Hobby Lobby
White dinner plate - Threshold at Target - $5
Red rooster plate - found in Blueridge, GA
Tiny bowl - Pier One has them all day long - $1.50 - I used them in my fall table setting
You know, I really should just call the friends and ACTUALLY have them over, right? I mean, the table is set.. all I really to do is make a yummy breakfast casserole to go with the fresh fruit, make mimosas, and we are set!
Hope your first weekend of spring is a good one! I'll be back soon with more updates on the kitchen renovation :)
