Brunch on the Deck

Yesterday I shared my deck off of the sunroom.  A place that is my view to the world from my kitchen window. I love the intimate setting it offers for a cup of coffee, or an impromptu lunch. Today I put together a little brunch with tea. I used my wedding china from France, and two of my pastel fruit motif vintage salad plates. Once I had glimpsed this faience, all the traditional wedding china choices were left behind.

Crown China Staffordshire Teapot

Being short on space, I wanted a little greenery
 without interfering with the tablesetting.
So I used two small iron urns to double as decor
 and a spot for holding the silver. 

Ivy cuttings, a vintage seed packet and a sprig of dried flowers.

Love the Country French feel of the tablecloth round,
that uses three different patterns and fabrics.

Grabbed a few pillows with vintage linens
to dress up the chairs.

Not vintage, but oh so comfortable.

I pulled this together in about 20 minutes.
Sometimes I forget that it doesn't take that long to make a special setting,
and that makes any meal more fun. 

I'm joining Sherry over at No Minimalist Here
for her Block Party Theme of Outdoor Entertainment.

And don't forget to head over to At The Picket Fence to
catch all the Summer Block Party Link Parties.
