~TABLESCAPE AND ....BREAKFAST~

Thanks, Susan @ BETWEEN NAPS ON THE PORCH for hosting our Tablescape Thursday! It's always fun...especially when you get to eat dinner..um..breakfast for dinner! :)

I'm using part of my Rooster dishes by Horchow. My girlfriend and I decided to do breakfast for dinner. Do you ever do that?
The large Fall leaves place mats and table runner are from CVS Pharmacy and were very inexpensive. The little pumpkin men are from Pier1 Imports.

YUMMA!! Wha'd I do with the napkins???


This is International Delight's Pumpkin Pie Spice! It says limited edition on the container. What do you suppose that mean? Good only until ..Thanksgiving??

OPEN the door Mom!!

Love and hugs,
Mona

Ummm, that Pumpkin Pie Spice creamer sounds delicious. I'll have to pick some of that up at the store next time I go.
I can't see your dishes very well but enuf that I can tell they are beautiful.
Pancakes and eggs? Ummm...we absolutely LOVE breakfast for dinner. Even our home church group that have dinner every Sun. night together sometimes does the same thing.
Mr. Sweet and i had scrambled, cheesy eggs and sausage last night! :)

Mona, just to say that when I clicked on your name last night over at Susan's, it didn't work...tried it again this morning and it just brings up a "Internet can't bring up this page". However, I can get to here by typing your address into my computer. Sooo, you might want to check and see what the deal is....
Hope your day is blessed...

Beautiful breakfast setting. I grabbed a bowl of Shredded Wheat while fixin' hubby breakfast and a lunch box at 5am this morn. The bowl was Pfaltzgraff, does that count???

I'm off to mow my green acre of lawn. I call it Thrasher Thursday. I do like it even...add that to my list of compulsions. You have yourself a fun day beautiful one!!! God bless

Your tablescape is so pretty and inviting. Your pic of the delicious looking food has reminded me that I have not eaten - looks so yummy :-)

Breakfast food is good at any meal. Hubby may not tell you that but I certainly will.

Coffeemate does a great pumpkin spice creamer too.. I'm hooked on the darned fattening stuff.

Is that pancakes You´re eating? I´m not sure because european and american pankaces doesn´t look the same, ours are much thinner I think.

But I have pankaces to dinner rather often :-) :-)
Have a great day now!

Your pancakes look sooooo.. good. I'm not a good pancake maker. Your table looks so pretty. Decorated for fall very nicely.

Sharing with Sherri said...

Oh boy you're makin my mouth water with those pancakes! I'd eat those any time of day!!

I'm a fat free hazelnut coffeemate girl most of the time, but I've seen that pumpkin spice creamer before and have been wanting to try it...

Have a nice day Mona!

What a gorgeous table you've created! Don't you just love the deep, rich colors of fall? I love having breakfast for supper when it starts getting cooler, and I think your breakfast looks very yummy! Thanks for sharing and happy TT to you!

Yes, breakfast for dinner is always so nice!! I do love to do that at times--it is comforting and homey. Love those plates and cups! I don't have any fallish placemats....but then it isn't fall yet...a few more days to go.... I always enjoy pumpkin stuff--muffins, pies, pudding thingies! YUM

Rettabug said...

I had trouble finding you from Susan's site last night as well, but I'm glad I persisted. I saw you over on BargainHunting with Laurie & followed your link there.
Very pretty tablescape & you've inspired me to plan tomorrow night's dinner to be breakfast. DH will be thrilled...he LOVES breakfast. Thanks for the idea. :)

Breakfast for dinner is one of our favorite meals! Yours looks delicious, and those leaf place mats are great. I also like your red check bordered plates. Lovely fall tablescape. And your fall blog decor is so pretty too. laurie

Hi Mona,
You always set such a beautiful table! I really love those rooster plates and the pancakes look yummy! We eat breakfast for dinner often, because my hubby loves pancakes! Hugs, Cindy

Shelia said...

Hi Dear Mona! Oh, I love breakfast for dinner and your table is so lovely! Love your plates. Now if I were the sweet, loving, sharing friend that I should be - I share my dishes with you. But I not! :) I mus tell you - I found these dishes at a Goodwill Store and they told me the dishes had been there for a month and then they just slashed the price way down to move them. Well, Dear One, I helped move them. They were priced at $50. No one wanted them at that price and I really was shaking when I saw the $12! You know I love you!
Kiss little Mele for me!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)
