Impromptu Morning Dessert (T)

With a late morning start we decided some apple and cherry turnovers sounded good and Dan volunteered to head off to the bakery to get some.   We'll be eating again around 1o'clock and didn't want to eat too heavily at this time.
 I got the coffee brewing and then decided to set up and impromptu table setting.  LOL he'll be surprised when he gets back!

 These little blue plates came from Pottery Barn (called Scalloped Tidbit Plate) and the reason I wanted them was to have something that fits on my little plate serving stand.  It's really small and a standard dessert plate doesn't even fit on it.

 Turns out their color looks really good with my Polish Pottery so that was a double bonus.  I ordered these on-line so I wasn't 100% sure of their color but fortunately it worked out well!  Some stores still have these but they are listed as sold out on line.

 This is the little plate stand.  I added the raspberry jam jar for looks but we didn't actually need it for our impromptu morning dessert. 

He should be back any moment so I best stop taking pictures!
Wishing you a beautiful day!

Dishing It & Digging It 


  1. I just love tidbit plates! They work out so great for so many things! Yours rock! So sweet of you to do this on an early Sunday morning. That's dedication!!!

  2. Liz, your little tidbit plates are darling. I love the pretty blue. Cherry turnovers sound delicious. I'm sure they were. ♥

  3. Hi Liz, I am also a fan of tidbit plates. I have always thought of that size plate as an appetizer plate but tidbit sounds like so much more fun. Yours are very cute and the scalloped edge. Wow. I also love your placemats. More scallops and all that quilting. Very nice.

  4. So sweet Liz. Love that you take the time to make a great little table setting for the two of you. How romantic and fun. I love all the blue and the place mats are so pretty. The turnovers sound delish. Hope you enjoyed.
    Happy New Week.

  5. How nice of you to surprise Dan with a pretty setting for an impromtu tidbit meal:) Love those blue plates. Have a great week. Today and tomorrow and cloudy and rainy here but then we go up to the 80's!!!! This Spring has been a roller coaster of temps!

  6. Hi Liz, such a pretty morning table. Love the blue and white and the dessert sounds delicious! Love tidbit plates!!Setting a table always makes everything taste better too.
    Enjoy the last week of April.

  7. Very sweet table. Was he surprised? The blue and white is timeless. The thought of setting up a pretty table and enjoying it makes the meal satisfying. I need more blue plates...LOL

  8. You and I share a love of gardening and setting a pretty table. Even with just two of us, we can eat at a special table. ;-)

  9. I love your lovely table and what a great idea. Thank you for sharing at Dishing it and Digging it link party. We love having you.
