We've had lots of company so far this summer so I was ready for a reason to use my 'new' Haviland. A brunch for four seemed perfect.
I set the table before I started cooking, so didn't get photos of the food. We had fruit (strawberries, blueberries and raspberries with a drizzle of agave), a little green salad with a simple dressing and toasted walnuts, and a cheese and vegetable quiche as well as a little breakfast roll, kind of a cross between a biscuit and a croissant.
You may already know this is my recent Haviland find. I'm looking forward to putting them to use so this is my first quicky attemp.
I thought using the greyish goblets would play upon the black in the dishware.
Here a closer look at the etching on these little sherbet cups from GoodWill.
It was a great little brunch before a day of wine tasting and sight seeing.
The Haviland is Schleiger #278 from a local antique mall;
fruit dishes are from Goodwill for $.25 each and I love the etching and little touch of grey in them;
water goblets are probably Libby that I've had for a while;
flatware is from Pier One, the Tadpole pattern that is years old;
tablecloth and napkins are probably from Ross, and;
I used the yellow Independence Ironstone dinner plates for chargers just to play up the yellow.
Thanks so much for visiting. Don't forget to check out Tablescape Thursday.
