Morning's Light Dining (T)

Here we are the 1st of June already!  I'm so excited because I love to garden see all my gardens come to life, plant flowers and listen to the birds serenading me.

With that in mind these dishes were chosen with their flowers and birds motif.

I chose to use this two tier tray for a centerpiece gathering together elements for dining.  

The coffee mugs are arranged to be easily accessed and I added a salt and pepper shaker set (which I won from blogger Michele @ The Nest at Finch Rest last year).

On top is an antique sugar bowl and a dark blue rooster creamer along with a bouquet of lavender in a tiny bottle.

Dark objects like this can be hard to capture- I ended up using my iPhone to get this shot.

I layered a dark blue placemat and then the seashell edged charger to add some definition.

I would love to do this outside but we're at the end of the pollen season and the oak trees have been dropping off their tassels or catkins and you can literally be coated in a few minutes with them!

It's going to be a wonderful day here- high of 70 and no rain! 


  1. How lovely Liz! I can almost smell the lavender~ the morning light streaming in is beautiful!

  2. Love this combination. I have a great affinity for birds, especially bluebirds, so this is perfect for me. Very pretty!

  3. Blue and white, birds and flowers are timeless partners. To have all four is perfect! I love all the details, especially the pretty etched stemware.

  4. So sweet Liz. I love the blue and white and those plates are fabulous. Looks like a perfect breakfast morning at your pretty table. Happy New Day.

  5. Hi Liz! I just love everything about this table. Your dish set is so pretty. I'm suddenly all into blue lately. And always anything with birds. The blue check tablecloth is so French! And I love the raised centerpiece. Practical and so interesting and pretty. I like your pretty room with that great view. Lovely. I'm loving spring too.

  6. Lovely blue and white theme for your indoor table, Liz. The tiered galvanized piece is pretty all decorated with your mugs and birds and lavender. We have finished with all the pollen now but I understand just what you are dealing with. ♥

  7. What beautiful colors, Liz! I bet you are excited about your garden. It's gorgeous!....Christine

  8. This is pretty indoors and would definitely look pretty outside!

  9. Looks lovely with the blue check. Loving the centerpiece, it add height. I know your garden is looking so pretty now. All of that winter weather is behind you.

  10. Hi Liz, your table setting is beautiful. I have the same plates and love them. It all would be gorgeous outside when the time is right. The pollen here has finally ended. Your centerpiece is great. Have a nice weekend. Lots of rain here.

  11. So very pretty Liz. I am jealous that your temps will be in the 70's. It's really feeling like summer here!

  12. Just gorgeous Liz. Those square blue and white dishes are just perfection.

  13. wow, this is beautiful! I love your blue and white (my favorite)!

  14. Liz, what a lovely table with the morning light! Blue and white is always perfect
