Breakfast table in red!

I thought it was time to make a little breakfast table. This week I decided to share this pretty china mug with you so the tray table was set around that.

Lovely white china with a red rim was set up on a pretty white scalloped doiley.

I took the pretty pink quilts off my bed to reveal the lovely white spread and used that as a backdrop for my tray table.

I made a cute little tag for my teabag - I dislike the ones that come in the pack. I don't know why they aren't made out of pretty papers.

I had these cushions on another chair and 'borrowed' them for my tablescape. This lovely strawberry napkin is really fine - just like tissue paper and I received them from a friend for my birthday a couple of years ago. 

Yum, hot buttered toast!

I know this beautiful pearl handled knife is not really for buttering toast but it was too pretty not to use.

Apple and strawberry jam in a small bowl and the only flower I could find in the garden sitting in a little port glass.


Don't you love a simple little breakfast.

Having joined Mosaic Monday this week I am now enjoying blog hopping around the world admiring everyone else's beautiful photography and gaining inspiration. It cheers me when so much of the world around us is in turmoil for one reason or another.

What beautiful china.

What a nice bright breakfast tray, Suzy! I love the red and white! You know what caught my eye was the pretty red gingham and floral pillow! The knife is too pretty not to share! Thanks for joining me for my Spring tea party. It's always lovely to have you!

Oh this is more than a simple little breakfast...this is a treat! You are good at making things special. Your red and white tea tray setting is so pretty and refreshing. I love your tea mug and the fact that you make your own pretty tea bag tag! You go girl!

Dear Suzy,

I love breakfast in bed, or should I say rather; 'Breakast in red'!.., Hehe

What a delightful red and white tea tray for breakast in bed and what a wonderful idea; so very pretty and tasty!..,

Yum! ~ Tea and toast with jam!

Thanks for joining Pam and I for TTTT and also for my 75th, 'Tuesday Tea For Two'!

Cheers and hugs from Wanda Lee

I love the red and white, especially the flowered mug.
Hot buttered toast is comfort food for me - don't even need any jam.

Now that would be a lovely thing to wake up to! I love your sweet china mug, and your pretty red and white dishes. Beautiful post!

I just love it in red and I don't think I've ever seen such beautiful dishes in red!


Ingrid@morestylethancash said...

Oh Suzy, I am reading your post during the middle of a Canadian snow storm and I am so jealous that you could pick a flower from your garden!

I adore the red and white of your dishes and agree that the knife is too pretty to not use. I also agree that the tea bag tags should be prettier. I love what you did!

You must have an endless collection of dishes and matching linens. Something I aspire to :)

Elaine said...

What a cheery and upifting breakfast tray, this would brighten anyone's morning. That toast looks scrumptious Suzy.
