Get Well Breakfast

I have been helping my daughter and her family for the past few days while she recovers from an appendectomy.  She is doing good, but moving a little slow and can't lift anything heavier than 10 pounds. Well, you know a four year old and a nineteen month old weigh more than  10 pounds so Grandma has been needed.

We are getting ready for breakfast and I have a Get Well Breakfast planned. Take a look:
I really haven't had time for tablescaping this week but  when this floral arrangement came, I thought it would make a beautiful centerpiece for a tablescape. 

I had a little help, as I set the table for breakfast, from my 20 month old grandson, who is a climber. His little smile just makes my heart sing.
I choose the tablecloth because of the orange Gerber Daisies in the arrangement. It seemed to really make the daisies pop. The napkins are navy blue which I like against the tablecloth. The napkins and great little napkin rings came from Pier 1. 

On our breakfast menu is:

Breakfast Fruit Pizza
Banana Nut Muffins
Red Grapes
Hot Oatmeal

The dishes are yellow Fiestaware and the flatware is Lenox Eternal.

Thanks for stopping by to see my Get Well Breakfast tablescape- Judy.

  1. Love the colors. Reminds me of summer. Very pretty.

  2. What a pretty and colorful table. That setting would make anyone feel better for sure.

  3. The colors on that centerpiece are just gorgeous with a great little table to match. You did a wonderful job and the breakfast looks yummy. I'm visiting from Seasonal Sundays.

  4. Judy - first, I hope that your daughter is feeling much better. Second, your grandson looks so much like you - he is a doll. Third, the floral arrangement is wonderful - I have never received one that was that interesting. Wonderful job with the table and being such a great mom and grandmother!! Your family is very fortunate!

  5. Just looking at this lovely table with the beautiful flowers should make your daughter feel better. Hope she makes a quick and full recovery. The menu looks delicious ... I love fruit "pizzas".

  6. Gee whiz, Judy...this is really terrific!!!! I can understand why you would have precious little time to tablescape while taking care of your ailing daughter and with little ones underfoot, but this is fantastic! It's attention to detail and the scrumptious breakfast menu belie the fact that you are up to your elbows!!! I especially like that you used that great orange tablecloth!!!!!!! You've just proven once again that putting together a nice tablescape can happen under even the most harried of circumstances!!! I hope your daughter is feeling 100% again soon!

  29. This is completely lovely! I was drawn in immediately by the centerpiece and agree that it just begged for a table to go along with it. Love your choices for a place setting, and my favorite part (besides the centerpiece) is the festive flower on the napkin rings.

    I need to be on the lookout for some cuter napkin rings. They can just make a table.

  32. That's a brilliantly cheerful table and would make anyone who's been under the weather enjoy breakfast with a smile! The flowers are gorgeous, and I can see why you'd be inspired. I use the same color combination for most of my gardens. Oh my goodness, I want to leap through my computer screen and have some of that breakfast pizza!

  33. That table would make anyone get well!! the floral centerpiece is divine. I love the fiesta dishes and the chargers are wonderful. Your grandson is an absolute charmer. Love his infectious smile. That is a lovely breakfast table.. surely enjoyed by all. xo marlis

  34. Judy, your grandson is just adorable. I see he is a little "mountain goat"! How sweet of you to take care of your daugher and I'm sure this table will make her feel much better... and very loved!

  35. You are so sweet. I know your daughter must have been excited when she came in for breakfast. What a beautiful surprise. That little one is a cute one. I agree that is a wonderful smile. Bet he kept you busy. So fun.
    Hope your daughter is feeling better.
    Blessings, Ginger

  36. What a happy breakfast table!! I agree with you ....the flower arrangement is just perfect for a table centrepiece. You can't let a chance like that go by!! Hope you are not getting too tired - I know I do when my little grandies are around but we wouldn't miss that for anything, would we??
