I love designing tablescapes. I started back in September 2010 and I now design tablescapes to share on my blog as well as on "Between Naps on the Porch" for Tablescape Thursdays.

My passion for designing tablescapes has sent me out on a search to buy more dishes that I can share every week.

I also enjoy making my own napkins to go with my different dishes and I love to mix and match some of my beautiful dishes.

Breakfast At Four AM.

My Inspiration for this tablescape was my Husband and his Buddies
going Duck hunting. I did this table the night before going to bed !!! seeing
the guys are getting up at four AM...

I purchased my sixteen plate setting at the Goodwill two week ago,
For $9.99 and 30% more off !!! on the back of the plate it has Rooster by Tienshan.

This is the soup bowl / salad plate. The Rooster
is dark blue and also on the rim !!! and white.

I love this set of French County plates
!! I have more Roosters now.~~

I did use my fall wood chargers with this Tablescape.

My centerpiece was lots of Autumn colors as you can see..

I did add my little pumpkins just for fun~~

I hope you are having a good time at four AM..

I have a big pot of coffee perking and 
some ice cold orange juice !! 


The tablecloth was a old throw from days and nights of 
football games. This will keep you warm all wool.

Well it's time for the guys to eat Breakfast !
First a big bowl of mix fruit, then eggs and bacon with hash browns.
Lets not forget the buttered grits and also homestyle butter biscuits!!!
I hope you all had a good time ~~ I'm going back to bed!
I love the fall !

I hope you all come Back!
Please take a moment to comment. Thank you so much!
I'am linking up with these Blogs for there linky parties.

Very nice and perfect for your hunters! I hope they appreciated it.Those rooster dishes are fabulous.

I love your table!! And what a bargain on the darling rooster dishes. Our Goodwill NEVER has sales or discounts. Guess they know they don't have to. I'm sure your hubby and his friends enjoyed the 4:00AM breakfast.

Wow, you are so sweet to do that for the guys! I love your new plates (jealous)! They sure do get up early to go duck hunting! I hope they had some luck!

Grammy Goodwill said...

I can't believe what a great price you got on the dishes - and then a sale. We never have those. It was so nice of you to set such a lovely table for the hunters. (I hope they had good luck after that.)

I hope your hubby and his buddies appreciated your efforts! What a fun and creative fall inspired tablescape. I love the masculine twist you've added for the boys.
Have a lovely Monday, Diane!

Very pretty table! You are so nice to help get the guys breakfast at that hour! Your dishes were a great find! Gorgeous!

Honey at 2805 said...

This is such a lovely 4 AM breakfast and I'm sure it was enjoyed by hungry hunters. You have included so many lovely elements, and I especially like the blanket/throw you used! Beautiful!

I left a message a couple of hours ago, but got that crazy message "do not leave the comment form blank". Sometime it kicks in later, sometimes not. So I came back to check.

Thanks for linking to Potpourri Friday. I appreciate you!

Marigene said...
