I did not use a tablecloth for this casual breakfast table. A natural fiber square placemat is perfect for this easy table for two. Simple white dishes help the fruit stand out. While a coconut shell bowl adds interest and carry the place setting. How pretty is this serving bowl!!! It definitely makes me smile….
Breakfast is always a casual event in our home. Most times, it’s just my husband and I unless we have family or friends visiting. We tried to keep it simple these days! Some toasted bagels, fresh fruit, lots of strong coffee and plenty of conversation. All served in our breakfast nook right next to our kitchen.
One thing that never changes, is our appreciation for a pretty table. My husband truly enjoys gathering around a well-set table with good food and company. Even if it’s just the two of us! There is not need for fancy or over the the top – inviting and welcoming will always do.
For napkins, I used Hearth & Hand Americana Blue Plaid/Red Stripe kitchen towels that I purchased at Target a few weeks ago. They are beautiful and perfect for any farmhouse kitchen! Clear glass goblets add timeless appeal.
How unique and gorgeous is this fruit bowl? We all “eat with our eyes” first, and this simple coconut shell bowl is definitely eye-catching. Just looking at it makes me hungry!!!
I hope I have given you a few ideas for setting your own casual breakfast table. Make everyday special. You deserve it!!
Thank you. I hope you are enjoying your summer.
