I am reposting a favorite and early Tablescape Thursday post -- for although I didn't get quite the pomp and circumstance of breakfast in bed, I was eagerly waited on hand and foot by Daughter Sarah who was home to do that -- just that!
Alas, no breakfast in bed for me for I'm downstairs on the sofa and so the pretty breakfast set will have to wait for another day and another time. Perhaps used for my first breakfast after I finally get back upstairs and back in my own bed!
What is one of the greatest luxuries in the world? Breakfast in bed, of course! Think of hotel room service only at home. Alas, it is not for me but rather for Daughter Sarah when she came for a visit -- alone. Time for me to pamper her as only a mother can. And so, upstairs with the breakfast tray and a favorite breakfast of hers.
A soft boiled egg -- 3 minutes, please. And whole wheat toast kept warm under the dome. A wee pot of coffee accompanied by cream and sugar. For pretty -- a small bouquet of flowers.
Bought years ago because I always wanted one. Think of English country homes and breakfast in bed served by a maid in a black dress with white apron. It has white roses on it and I bought it because I had wanted a breakfast set and this is the first one I found. It's called Adams Antique and it's by Steubenville.
The amazing thing is that the little white roses on it so match . . .
The wallpaper in the room. Papered YEARS after the breakfast set was bought. The breakfast set was not given a thought when the wallpaper was purchased for I wanted a yellow and white rose paper for the room and this one caught my fancy.
However, with the breakfast set on the bed, it truly seems as if it was bought to match the wallpaper.
I don't get a chance to pamper Daughter Sarah often and she appreciated the leisurely breakfast in bed. It's room service -- but at home!
Thanks to Susan at Between Naps on the Porch, who hosts Tablescape Thursday. It's so fun to participate and share the entertaining that we do at Linderhof.
