COME BRUNCH WITH ME!

In the midst of all the shopping, decorating and baking, it's good to take time to stop and have a simple meal with a friend or loved one!
Here is my simple brunch table for two!

The candle plates are vintage Harmony House and are snack set plates.  I do not have the matching cups so added a Sandwich glass bowl for fruit or grits.  
I love the bold colors of these Poinsettia napkins I found in a thrift.  I also used white handled flatware also found in a thrift store.

A red plate as a charger and juice glasses matching the pitcher and a glass mug for coffee or tea complete the place setting

A simple centerpiece
An Angel on a cake plate with red, green and gold ornaments and a touch of greenery

Vintage juice pitcher, creamer & sugar bowls and cardinal salt & pepper shakers complete this table.

I hope you take some time this season to enjoy a easy and fun meal and spend some time with someone you love! 

I'm joining these parties today

This is a table setting my Mom would have loved. It reminded me of her instantly. Of course, you know in my house I have no color, but I loved seeing this and thinking of her.. She's been gone nearly 9 years, how can that be?

They had the only black dining set I had ever seen..handmade by my dad. She said it showed off all her red dishes...

I love red and green together at Christmas. Your table looks so pretty. My favorite is the napkins, oh, and those plates, and the white flatware, too. (hehehe)
