Breakfast on the 4th

I quickly put together a quick tablescape for our morning breakfast on the 4th

No time to iron linens and just paper napkins!

I heated up the maple syrup and we had orange juice and coffee.
The trivets are from Pennsylvania made by Wendell August.  
I've collected a few pieces on our visits to see our son when he lived there.

Daughter Chelsea prepared the breakfast and I played with the table.
The orange juice was back in the fridge to keep cold. 

 This made me laugh- she used my pig dish for the bacon!  LOL

 She made french toast,  scrambled eggs, bacon, homemade cubed potato hash, and gluten free pancakes that were for her (with sprinkles no less!).  Notice the snazzy way I disguised the (transfat free) butter spread! 

 I had to rush since the food was ready to be eaten!  Cell phone pics but not too bad.

This is a reality table- not too fancy but real!
