Breakfast on the Porch ~ Red, White and Cottage Blue


I love to be outside.  I love to dine outside.  We spend a lot of time on this porch!  The summers here in South Carolina can be stifling, so breakfast is the best time to enjoy a meal out here!

Plates: TJMaxx
Flatware: Homegoods
White pitcher: IKEA
Juice glasses: IKEA
Flag Pillow: Target
Small cherry paper napkins: Country Living K-Mart
Cherry and Strawberry salt and pepper shaker: K-Mart

Edit:  One of my visitors left me a message about 'flag etiquette.'  I have used flags in my decorations many times and was unaware of how to properly display a flag.  I am very grateful, as this has taught me what I should teach my children!  If you would like to learn more about respect for the flag and how to display it, click here!  Thank you Judy and Linda!

I am joining the CSI Project

I will link to my favorite sites throughout the week! See their buttons on my sidebar and go pay them a visit!
I hope you are having a great summer!  It has taken me three days, but I have finally recovered from my no-rest vacation!

Christi, this looks cottage charming! I saw those darling dishes in TJ Maxx this past spring. Loved them then and love them now. Just didn't have an excuse to buy them. They are perfect for this setting. It all looks so inviting. ~ Sarah

A few of you asked about the chairs! I purchased those recently from a traveling furniture store. Apparently, they sold their French line to Boyles, who recently went out of business. This Business decided to take their line on the road! I can't remember a name, as it was in a rental place, but do remember that they sell their items in High Point, NC, in addition to the traveling store. The chairs were available in green also! I am so sorry I don't have more info for you!

Hi, I gotta tell you; I have a few of these dishes and I absolutely love them. They made my heart skip a beat when I spied them at T.J's. Didn't buy the silverware. It is so cute with the dishes. I had to laugh, I nabbed those napkins when I saw them in the clearance section at k'mart. Didn't see the shakers though. Love them, guess I'm gonna have to make another trip to K-mart.

Christie,

Love your porch and table setting! Could you tell me the brand of the dishes. Would like to google them ... since they aren't at our local TJ Maxx.

Thanks,
Betsy

This looks like such a cozy and inviting place to dine.

My friend, you are a brilliant artist!

Christie said...

Betsy, The plates are made by 222 Fifth and are called 'New Country.' The pattern was available in plates, bowls, mixing bowls, etc! Good luck finding them!
