Tablescape Tuesday – New Breakfast Table Setting

Tablescape Tuesday is sponsored by Susan of Between Naps on the Porch.

For the Christmas season the breakfast table was set with Spode "Christmas Tree" dishes and goblets, and Avon "Cape Cod" Ruby Red glasses, napkin rings and salt and pepper shakers. See post here.

Now for the next month or so, I’ve set the table with Churchill "Bermuda Blue" dishes, which are one of the everyday sets. Just before going to the hospital last Thursday to bring my mother home, I quickly put together a new daily place settings for our breakfasts, lunches and supper.

To save time I left the white tablecloth on (which is over the usual blue and white with dark aqua topper).
Churchill "Bermuda Blue" dinner plates
Canonsburg "American Traditional" square salad plates
Churchill "Bermuda Blue" cereal bowls
Oneida "Raphael" stainless flatware


Clear Water tumblers for water
Cobalt tumblers for juice
Churchill "Bermuda Blue" cups and saucers

Canonsburg "American Traditional" salt and pepper shakers
Blue and white ceramic napkin rings with dark blue cloth napkins.


On Saturday my youngest sister and her daughter brought the flowers for mother. I placed them in a blue and white vase.


In the center is a covered bowl in Churchill "Blue Willow" with a blue and white crocheted doily underneath. There is also a cream compote with a small pitcher by from Spode’s Blue Room collection.
So these are our dishes and basic tablesetting for daily meals. If we ae having a chunky soup, I'll use the rimmed soup bowls by Canonsburg "American traditional" or Churchill "Bermuda Blue". When other family or friends come, we use the dining room table.

For more delightful table settings please see the list of participants at Susan’s blog.

Rhonda,
I found these dishes in 1995 when I was attending a professional conference. I had already packed my suitcase for my return home, but I just had to find room for some plates and bowls. Later I was able to get the rest here in the US.

Hope your mom continues on the road to recovery :)
For me, the addition of the solid white...mixed with the pattern blue, turns the tablescape into DRAMA...that was a really good decision...for its lovely!
