Sunday Morning Brunch

This is the tablescape I used last summer for our Sunday morning brunch with friends from the Cape. It was a perfect morning, I wish I had taken a picture of the food, but this year I will.
The placemats and napkins have a touch of rusty red in them and it does not show in the pictures. The napkin rings are dragonflys...we were in the garden. The silver was my husband's grandmothers and we use it all the time, so you will see it again. The hydrangeas were from the garden.

Coffee, tea and pastry was served from here in the shade.

I just can't wait for the weather when we can dine outside in the garden once again...right now we need a fire and blankets to do that!
