Christmas Breakfast Tablescape

016I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas! Here at the Plate Addict household, things are quiet after a busy morning with the grandchildren that began very early! Christmas breakfast has to be easy and simple as does the tablescape. So…it’s just a few quick additions to my rustic Christmas centerpiece!

081 While the staff is checking out the packages and wrapping paper, our beloved CEO Ozzie is slipping in a little snooze in her favorite chair…decorated with pink ribbons…her favorite toys.

120Following my decision to keep it simple on the hutch…just adding a few pops of red and green among the Quimper fa├»ence…

019 …I have added a little more of the same to the tablescape… 

051 …with a wicker charger topped by my Wedgwood Queensware plain...a Goodwill bargain at $68 for 52 pieces...

023 …decorated with a few sprigs of rosemary from the garden tied with twine and a shiny red ornament…

095 …little green stars on the saucers, reminiscent of the little cookies they always serve with coffee in France, and a candy cane peeking out of the Irish lead crystal goblets…

133 …and my favorite Octette pewter flatware with its chunky rustic lines and three-tined forks resting on red napkins.

126Mr. and Mrs. Snowman shakers from Publix several years ago have joined the little reindeer in the shabby box from Joss & Main

127…and more candy canes and rosemary add a festive air to the little lead crystal urn filled with vintage flatware, Goodwill finds collected over time.

174 My country French rooster chandelier…another favorite… is decorated with more shiny red ornaments to finish off the simple Christmas  look in the breakfast room.

076Now we only need to add the breakfast casserole, biscuits and some fruit to complete the table! Won’t you join us?
My Christmas has been filled with lots of love, laughter and hugs…not to mention lots of time spent as a captive in the fort delivered by Santa! lol I hope yours has been all that you hoped for and more! It’s my last opportunity this year to say it, so…Merry Christmas to you all!

  14. It is the little touches that make this table adorable, Debbie! Love the rosemary tied up w/the ornie. It is all so cheerful and festive. :-) hugs, Sue

  15. OK, I love everything about this tablescape. The flatware is fabulous, the dishes....what deal and the simplicity of the decorations used to enhance the settings was spot on. Oh, and I love how you have inserted napkins/towels in the wine holder cubbies on your hutch, great idea. Thanks for sharing Debbie.

  16. Simple yet so beautiful. I love it from a fellow plate lover...

  17. Very pretty rustic tablescape, Debbie. I love the idea of the rosemary sprigs. I should copy that cause we have so much in the garden...Christine

  18. Your breakfast table is beautiful. I really love the rosemary and red Christmas ball tied with twine. That is simply a beautiful decoration.

    I am looking forward to trying your breakfast casserole as well. That recipe sounds delicious and is unlike any other breakfast casseroles I've made. Yum!

    Happy New Year!

  19. Your home looks divine. I love the fresh rosemary ideal, it always smells so wonderful. WE all work so hard, getting ready, and then in a flash it is over. Richard from My Old Historic House.

  20. Very pretty and inviting table setting! Happy New Year to you and yours!

  21. Your table and home are just gorgeous. You're an inspiration.

  22. Belated Merry Christmas, Debbie! Your breakfast tablescape is gorgeous, as is your whole room! So beautiful and festive!

    I'm particularly intrigued by the plant to the left of your hutch. Love it! What is it? And is it real or faux?

  23. Yes, Christmas breakfast table needs to be simple. I love yours! Very festive, but not fussy!

  24. It looks like you had a splendid time. Hope you got out of the fort unscathed, LOL!! Have a BLessed time with your family.

  25. Such a delightful way to begin Christmas Day. laurie

  26. It looks so pretty with the early morning sun shining on your table. I have a very similar chandelier in my kitchen. In fact, it started a whole kitchen makeover!

  27. I just thrifted those Publix Snow people shakers this fall. I loved using them.

  28. Debbie, everything looks wonderful. So happy you had a wonderful holiday :)

    xo, Bonnie

  29. Fantastic!!! You pulled off what so many people would love to do for a simple but festive Christmas morning brunch or breakfast. It looks fantastic but it didn't take away scads of time from your family. Little additions here and there can sometimes make all the difference!

  30. Beautiful, Debbie!! Refined, but fun, too! I love the shadow box filled with holidays goodies. And your it!

    Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!! :-)


  31. Everything looks wonderful!! I am now a follower of your blog and look forward to return visits. I invite you to join me as well at Happy New Years. Hugs, Gayle.

  32. Visiting from TTT. Like the arrangement you made for the plates, and I will take that box you have in the middle off your hands if you tire of it. My favorite part? The cat on the chair (Ozzie?). I'm a sucker for those 4 legged furry creatures.

  33. Debbie, your tablescape is so pretty. I hope you had a fabulous Christmas. So wonderful to spend it with the grands. Thanks for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

  34. Your breakfast table looks so beautiful! I love all the fun details. It makes me wish Christmas would last longer so I could do a fun tablescape like that. Well, there is always next year. I think I have to get started with my decorating earlier next year! Anyway, I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. Best wishes for the new year!

  35. Love the sprigs of rosemary - yummy scent! The silverware is fantastic! What a festive table. Have a fabulous new year!

  36. Love your table AND all your PARIS posts. I am hoping to go back soon and will be using lots of the info and tips that you offered. Thanking YOU...

  37. I loved seeing your table and baker's rack, Debbie! I may have to copy your idea of using a wreath on the baker's rack -- looks wonderful!

  38. loved the box as part of your centerpiece.. must give it a try. Truly a lovely setting. Wishing you warmth, good cheer and many, many blessings in the new year.

  39. Great the centerpiece. I keep coming back to check out the pewterware, it is calling out to me.
    Happy New Year, Deb
