New Year's Breakfast Table Setting


Before I present you with my first tablescape of 2018, let me encourage you to get creative with your tables this year. It doesn't take a lot to arrange an attractive and inviting table. It need not be over-the-top. It can be simple; you can use what you have on hand, and make a cozy and delightful table, as I have done here for a New Year's Day breakfast.
It has been cold here, and I'm talking single digits, so I have been embracing all of my fuzzy pillows and throws. This morning, as I shivered my way from the bedroom into the kitchen to fire up the coffee, it made me smile to see such a warm and inviting table, with my favorite fuzzy throw at center. Here, practicality has been tossed out the window. Today it is all about fun, and a meal at a warm and cozy winter table like this one is going to be a meal that is enjoyed.
This was very simple to put together. I made use of the silver houses and twig deer that I had on my Christmas table, as well as some favorite wooden chargers from Pier 1, topping the stack of plates with this delightful clock plate, representing the New Year, a part of the Old Curiosity Shop set of dishes by Royal China.
I'm going to have to do an entire post on that set of dishes, because each dish has a different, Dickensian drawing on it, making this one of the most charming sets of dishes that I own.
For now, pour yourself a cup of coffee, sit back and enjoy.
Happy New Year, everybody!

Love the throw in the center! Your table is just adorable. We are having hubby's sister and son over for breakfast this morning and had planned to just throw some plates on our table, but now I am reconsidering - lol!

Beautiful table. I love those green china plates. I'm anxious for you to do a tables cape with the rest of them. Best wishes for a Happy and Healthy New Year.
