Tablescape Thursday: A Weekday Morning Brunch

Happy Thursday, dear friends, and welcome to Tablescape Thursday. Brunch is usually something that I love to prepare on the weekend. However, with us all being home every day of the week, I thought it would be fun to change things up a bit. I wanted to do something extra special for my family so I decided to surprise them with a weekday brunch of breakfast casserole and homemade donuts. I’ll have to say it was quite a hit!

French table linens set the stage for this sunny and cheerful tablescape.

I know I used my Spode Blue Italian china for last week’s table, but I decided to use it again styled in a different way.

Since I am not able to purchase fresh flowers, I decided to forage around the yard for blooms to create a centerpiece. My rose bush and purple Salvia was very generous along with some greenery lended from various shrubs. Yellow daisies left over from a Mother’s Day bouquet from my oldest son completed the arrangement.

My sweet friends, I hope that you are enjoying these beautiful spring days and taking the time to savor the simple things. Enjoy your day, and may it be filled with joy and blessings.

    • I'm so sorry that I am late in answering your question. I found my lace curtains at A Touch of Class. They have an online store as well as a catalog. I'm unsure of who they are made by. I hope this helps. Take care, and enjoy your week!
