Tablescape Thursday--Sunny Yellow Breakfast Table

With more snow in our forecast and all the gloomy weather I've been longing for some sunshine.  I got up early on Saturday to make a nice big breakfast for my hubbie and son and there was another gray sky outside.   I went to my linen closet and pulled  my cheery yellow tablecloth and went to work on creating my own sun-shiny breakfast table.  

I found this cute yellow pear topiary at Marhsall's on clearance for $5.00 and knew it would be perfect for the breakfast table.  

I thought these yellow flowers and the bunny in a cloche were a nice alternate look.

These goblets are from my great-grandmother..they are perfect for juice and are some of my favorite pieces of stemware.       

A closer view of the bunny and cloche.

Dinner plates are Staffordshire 'Liberty Bell' from England.  My mom gave these to me and I enjoy them so much.

These sweet little napkins were also my mothers.  I love the dainty embroidery in soft blues.  I just added yellow napkin rings I found on sale.  

 Visit all the other tables at Susan's Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch.

Hope your day is filled with sunshine!
