The Morning of the Sleepover


While John was in Florida to visit brand new grandson, I stayed behind because I am going there in a few weeks. But I am afraid of being home alone at night. My 2 friends were so nice to sleep at home and keep me company both nights John was away. We had such a great time, staying up until 4:30 AM and we kept joking that we should send John out of town more often, lol.



I wanted to create something feminine for the breakfast table., after all it was a girls' slumber party.



I borrowed this topiary from one of the guest bedrooms.


Since we ate dinner the night before on the round kitchen table, I thought we would eat breakfast here with a pool view.


The wooden box is from One Kings Lane and I filled it with birds and bird stuff.


Placemats have purple hydrangeas in them. The coffee pot is "Enchantment" by Royal Stafford.


The teacups and saucers are made by Tirschenreuth but I cannot read the pattern anymore because the set has been put away.
I love the combination of the green and lavender. I think it is very feminine and soothing.



I set the breakfast table the night before.












Because we went to bed so late, I had a hard time getting up. By the time I got to the kitchen, Brenda and Debjani were already there getting ready to prepare breakfast. I asked why they did not wake me up and they said they wanted to surprise me. LOL! Don't I just have the nicest friends?


Debjani was introduced to a typical ethnic Filipino breakfast and she loved it as well as we did!
I am not sure what my floral plates are but I think they might be made by Nippon. Again, I already packed them away. As you might already know, I have been boxing up my dishes because I have to empty cabinets so the floor people can move the furniture so they can replace our floors.


The dinner plates are made in Portugal.


The purple glasses are made by La Rochiere. The goblets with a greenish tinge were bought from one of the vendors in the store for $1 each.


I bought this bird and nest sauce server from Charleston. I served vinegar with hot pepper from our garden in it and used it to dip the sausage. We like hot stuff.



Debjani was trying to be creative in trying to take a picture of all of us. I could not find my tripod so pedestal tray servers would have to do, lol.


We had eggs (sunny side up and hard boiled), Filipino sausage (longanisa- so yummy with the spicy vinegar) and fried rice .



These calamondins (calamansi) were growing right outside the window. I use them in place of lemon.



Thanks so much for your visit, it is always very much appreciated.
