So many holidays this week. Cinco de Mayo, Kentucky Derby, and of course, Mother's Day.
I don't have any julep cups or horsey stuff, so I went with a Mother's Day Breakfast Table.
The Tablescaper and I had a retail therapy session yesterday.
I got this cute covered Retail Therapy mug marked down to 29 cents! Good to keep the gnats out of my coffee once it gets warm enough to have breakfast on the porch.
A little tin of cookies and some candy with it, LOL.
Anyway, we went to Christmas Tree Shop and I bought this quilted throw. Scalloped edge , 100% cotton. I got 2, and was happy to see they were marked down to 6.49 from 12.99.
One side with pretty hydrangeas, the other without, a nice soft blue. I like them for the backs of the white rocking chairs on the covered porch.
On a previous retail therapy trip, I bought 4 little hydrangea blooms bundled in burlap. I am not crazy about burlap, it makes me itch, really! But these were cute, and the hydrangea factor outdid the burlap dislike! :)
Popped them on top of a pretty blue small cake pedestal.
Rattan charger, blue stems for our OJ.
Gibson white plate, light blue Pfaltzgraff plate .26 at the long gone clearance store, topped with an easy chair for Mom plate. :)
Teapot shaped butter plate topped with a Petit Four. ( I know they are for tea bags, but I am using them for butter plates. They were 1.99 for 6 at CTS last year. )
Yes, chocolate for breakfast! Mom deserves it!
Blue swirl flatware, blue napkin.
Blue cups and saucers from my neighbor that I talked about in the previous post.
And that's it. No advance planning here! Use it while you still remember what you bought! :)
We had Irish Tacos the other night. No beans, no hot stuff!
So happy Cinco de Mayo! No mayo on these!
Tonight's dinner is Lady Bug Salad.
Romaine lettuce, be sure to wash well, cause that's where I found a LADY BUG!
Red onion, grape tomatoes, fresh sliced pears soaked in oj so they don't brown after you peel and slice them. Sliced hard boiled eggs, chicken breasts, dredged in seasoned flour and crisp fried in a little oil, shrimp, feta cheese, bacon, croutons , and grapes.
Thanks so much for visiting, hope you will come back this weekend for Favorite Things and Seasonal Sunday.
