Cherry-Plaid Brunch (T)

A brunch gathering…

Keeping it simple I staged my chippy white and blue pitcher with some geraniums as a centerpiece. 

My daughter gave me these three pigs a few years ago and they get moved around the kitchen area in my decorating.  Today I decided they would blend in well with this setting.

The glasses decorated with cherries came from a local store some time back.

The cherry napkins offer an additional pattern and repeat the theme!

 When I chose this tablecloth I knew I had some green dishes that I hoped would play well with it and as it turns out the golden yellow dishes did too.  There is a rooster on them but I didn't snap a shot of it.

I chose the seashell edged placemats to keep things light and summery.

 I didn't play up the blue in the tablecloth but I plan to at a later date.  Red is my favorite color this year and I've added it out back in my garden areas.

Though we're all calling it summer already it's really still spring here and my lilac topiary tree is still blooming.  It has produced an amazing display this year and the scent is amazing.  The smell carries all around the backyard area.  You can see it in the picture below just outside the deck area.

We love a hearty sized brunch on the weekends to take us through dinner.  A plate for pancakes or french toast and one for bacon, eggs and hash browns! 

The players:
Green dishes- Made in Italy, Maioliche Jessica
Golden-yellow dishes- from One King's Lane-Sweet Olive Designs, Embossed Rooster Collection, Jane Adams
Red Flatware- Horchow
Tablecloth- Kohl's
Napkins, Cherry Glasses and Placemats all from local stores 

I will be joining:


  1. Liz, you set the prettiest tables. I love the cherry themed items and the plaid tablecloth. The three little pigs adds a touch of delightful whimsy. Your lilac is just gorgeous! I have my grandmother's lilacs, but sadly they did not bloom this year. Too much shade. Our property is full of trees that we love, but then as a gardener I wish for more sun. Have a lovely day. ♥

  2. Hi Liz, LOVE your cherries and plaid setting. Your dishes and colors are beautiful. You have inspired me to paint cherries once again. I painted many over the years and your table is a nice reminder.
    Just look at your gorgeous lilac. Beautiful. Enjoy the day! xo

  3. Oh how wonderful Liz - your lilac bush and your pretty tablescape is fresh and inviting!

    I hardly got a bloom on my poor lilac bush this year, makes me so sad.
