Waking Up to White

Good morning! I’m in the mood for a pretty white breakfast table today, but it’s only going to happen in Blogland.  Little Man and Little Sir are here visiting for one more day, and they’ll be waking up any minute … and breakfast time with an almost 3-year-old and an almost 3-month-old is more functional than fancy … but I hope you enjoy looking at the table I’d set for you this morning if YOU were joining me.

Yes, I know it’s not proper etiquette to use candles during the day, but I always like to know the rules … so I can decide when to break them!

Besides, I think these sweet little candleholders perfectly complement the shape of the juice glasses and the “frill” of the gladiolus.


I’ll just let you look…





Thank you, Renaissance Man, for sharing yet another beautiful bouquet of flowers with me … so I can share them with my friends in Blogland.


I’m sure glad you stopped by for a visit, and I hope you have a wonderful day! I’ll be doing the same.

I’ll be partying at Between Naps on the Porch.  It’s
Tablescape Thursday!


  1. SWEET!!!!!

  2. So fresh and simple and beautiful! Love it!
    I have never heard in all my years that it isn’t proper to use candles in the day time. I guess I’ve failed that one! LOL…


  3. Now that I’ve had this beautiful breakfast in white, I’m ready to face the day. Thanks for the respite. Cherry Kay

  4. I have a T-shirt that says, “Rules Are Just Loose Guidelines”. I take that to heart as you did! 🙂 Beautiful table, Susan! The all-white color theme is just beautiful!!! Fabulous floral centerpiece, too! How nice of your husband!!! I know you have your hands full with those little ones today, so enjoy!
