The sun is shining, it is finally beginning to feel like spring, and we are having a pink breakfast in the dining room. Will you join me? I couldn't resist these pink and white lisianthus which were on sale at the supermarket. Don't they look pretty in my milk glass urn? It was a rummage sale find, one of my favorites.
These rather large cereal bowls are Global Design Connections by Kate Williams. I love the pattern, with it's twining strawberry plants and pretty edging.
The pink and white napkins echo the winding pattern. The flatware is my usual motley collection of silverplate and German silver; the water goblet is Donegal, by Waterford.
Here is your place. Won't you sit down?
Corn muffins are nestled in a white creamware serving dish, lined with a matching napkin.
The remaining plates are Baroque by American Atelier at Home. They rest on linen placemats which carry on the cream and pink theme.
OK, we're probably not going to need salt and pepper, but I couldn't resist these shakers. Mr. and Mrs. Pigglesworth came from my favorite thrift store. Aren't they adorable?
Will you have strawberries on your cereal? Cream? The cow creamer is Staffordshire, and the strawberries are nestled in a Johnson Bros. sugar bowl, Old Britain Castles pattern. You don't mind using heirloom silver sugar tongs for the strawberries, do you? They belonged to my mother, and I just love them.
Here is a close-up of the Old British Castles pattern on this tag sale sugar bowl that has lost it's lid. For $1.50 it was a steal. :)
Fresh-baked corn muffins. Yum!
