Spring is playing hide and seek around here. Like an elusive child, it pops up momentarily only to hide again. But the one sure harbinger of spring is the daffodil.
While we’re waiting for the real deal, I’ve set the table for a casual spring breakfast. At least the bright colors will transport our minds to where our bodies long to be!
I covered the table with a matelasse coverlet right out of the linen closet—no pulling it off and heading back to bed! I love the white as a canvas for the bright yellow and green.
The centerpiece was a snap. Silk daffodils in small pitchers will have to do until the real thing arrives. Eggs piled on a small cake plate with delicate open cutwork continue the simple white breakfast theme.
I found these happy spring placemats this year to use with the standby white Gibson china. A single daffodil tucked into each napkin will make each guest feel special.
Now we don’t really need place cards for breakfast, but they are fun! I dyed hardboiled eggs and wrote names on them. You can eat them after you find your seat :). Flatware is from Big Lots!
We’ll be serving family style, so you’ll have to grab your own plate to go pick up your eggs and pancakes. Now you can get the full effect of the yellow placemat! Don’t worry if you’re not a morning person. This table setting will work perfectly for a casual lunch without the eggs!
I’ll be joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday and Michelle at Maddycakes Muse for her Easter Tablescapes and spring parties contest.
