It’s been awhile since we sat down at this table for a bacon, egg, biscuits and gravy breakfast. We really are trying to behave.
If we were to splurge throw caution to the wind, and have one of those big old farmhouse breakfasts, this is how I would set the table.
Mikasa French Countryside dinner plates and saucers, red Corelle mugs, glassware from Old Time Pottery, many years ago and red handled flatware.
The cloth is new from Pottery Barn. I added it and four new checked napkins to four napkins I purchased last year, from PB. The rooster is from The White Hare, St Peters MO, a few months ago. I bought another rooster at the time I picked up this one. The smaller one is in the hearth room.
Instead of napkin rings, I tied the napkins with twine.
The chicken feeder is from a local farm supply store.
I shot the black and white barn photos several years ago, using a 35mm film camera.
The youth chair was a gift, over 30 years ago. The g’kids have used the little chair at the breakfast room table. I’ve also used it as a plant stand.
Mikasa French Countryside was a wedding gift in 1983. I registered for this "everyday china" at Famous Barr, St Louis.
Even though French Countryside isn't fine china, it is technically wedding china.
I am adding this post to Kathleen's Wedding China Challenge.
