Table Scape Inspired by the Lake

Photobucket


We recently spent our last weekend at the lake before school starts back, and I miss the lake already. I decided to set our breakfast table to remind us of how much fun we have had at Lake Martin.

The tablecloth is lake blue, and it was an Ebay purchase.

The napkins and napkin rings are vintage.

The bowls are Anthropologie latte bowls by Biscuit.  The bamboo flatware reminds us of the lake because we have bamboo floors in our cabin, and we use bamboo flatware at the lake cabin.

In the center of the table, we have a MacKenzie-Childs vase with daisies and candlestick.

The vintage glass is filled with a soy candle made by waverly and irving.

What are you having for breakfast this morning?  We are having Muesli, Greek yogurt, and Paris tea.

Until next time...

Blessings!

  1. Your table looks so pretty & is such a sweet reminder of summer fun. I always forget that the kids go back to school earlier in the south than we do.

  2. Pretty and fresh looking. I am lucky to have one of the kids get forks and napkins on the table here at dinner time. Nice that you have it all set for everyone. Love the ducks. How is the week going so far?

  8. Your table looks lovely. I always wanted to have a cabin to go to for vacations and get aways. Paris tea sounds so good right about now.

  9. I love the color of the tablecloth. I can't believe it is time to start school again. It seems as if summer has just started, or at least that we haven't gotten to enjoy it yet because of all the heat! Summers were longer when I was a kid!

    As for breakfast, I had a bowl of bran flakes...big deal!

  10. Very pretty. I especially like the vintage napkins - crochet, right? Or, is it tatting? It's hard to see....

    Oh, yes, breakfast. Chocolate rum cake and Wallingford Hazelnut coffee. Oh, baby, that was good!
