His ‘n’ Hers

breakfast ab
As Mr FH and I celebrated our anniversary this last week I thought I would set a lovely his ‘n’ hers breakfast tray. I had just purchased these lovely little bowls (one pink, one green) and these great coffee mugs to match so that was the start of the tray.
I have two of these lovely white trays – this is the bigger one and just perfect to hold breakfast essentials for two. I love the size of the cups – I like my first cuppa in the morning to be nice and big so these are ideal.
I had forgotten I had these butterfly plates until I was just about to get my camera and they were a match made in heaven!!! lol
My favourite all time flatware… the pink polka dots came out once again. I would love to find these in others colours but I am yet to see any. Do you notice the napkins….yes, they are paper but that’s not what I want to show you. They are identical patterns but one pack has a white background and the other has a pale green background.
Heart shaped sugars are just gorgeous. I am so grateful none of my friends (or husband) take sugar as I can re-use these over and over!!
You can see the colours of the napkins here. After a couple of months of re-posting tablescapes and using some from the gift shop I had so much fun putting this together. I had forgotten just how much I enjoy it.
This very old shaggy quilt I had made is just the right colours for this little breakfast.
Breakfast is served!!! I have used a pretty white paper (yes, paper again!) doyley on the tray and it was the perfect fit. I actually thought I had the perfect pale green flatware but when I put it all together it turned a very blue colour. Funny how that happens.
I’m not sure if candles on a breakfast tray are acceptable but I just had to include this one – the perfect heart shape!
What a great way to start the day.

These pastels are making me think of those little mints that my mom used to serve at all her showers! They are just so perfect for spring. Luv the polka dotted flatware and the cute napkin patterns. Visiting from BNOTP. :-) Sue
