We're Having Easter Breakfast In The Garden

The weather has been so beautiful and warm that I thought it would be fun to set a table in the middle of the lawn on Easter morning and have breakfast there.
The little lidded Atlas jelly jars will be for OJ.  
The lids work great to keep out the occasional flying bug.

 A bunch of mismatched silver plate... makes it a bit more fancy-schmancy right?

 A few carrots from the veggie garden...a gift for Mr E. Bunny. 
This is an interesting Italian variety.
They are yellowish orange and super sweet too.

I invited some  chickens!

The old yellow and white quilt looks very sunny and it's been washed a million times so no worries about spills.

 The sponged Rockingham bowls are great and I have owned them for years....
still a favorite.
They are great for fruit and yogurt or ice cream...can we have ice cream for breakfast?
The flower vase is vintage McCoy and has that great matte jadeite glaze.  
Anything this color seems fun to collect.

 Old ticking feather pillows on the bistro garden chairs.... just a bit more comfy.

The sun is so dappled in the morning and it is such a wonderful time to sit and enjoy  the old oaks and the amazing smell of the orange blossoms in the orchard.

I'm off to get the coffee and the rest of our breakfast.....
Have a wonderful day

  1. Lovely setting...both the garden and the table.

    I'm headed to the market for my veggies...can't seem to grow anything this year. Oh well...
    I will keep trying!
    Happy Easter!

  12. Hi Kelley,

    Oh goodness - what a charming table all decked out for Easter - love - love your chickens and your rustic table -just perfect for your farm.
    Wishing you and your family Easter Blesing,

  13. Your breakfast is going to be so wonderful! We had our Easter breakfast today because DH is heading out of the country tomorrow. Alas, we ate indoors. Someday when my garden is finished, we'll have it outside. I absolutely adore that beautiful quilt. And, I seriously thought those were fake carrots at first. Such a fun color. Would you share what kind they are?

  14. Pretty as a picture -- from a magazine. Just gorgeous -- I love the quilt turned table cloth. So clever!

  15. This is divine !
    You have inspired me
    Happy Easter x

  16. Oh, Kelley - you are so blessed to be having such beautiful weather for Easter! Your breakfast table is so pretty! Love the mish-mash of colors, textures, and fabrics. Very country! :) Praying that you and yours will have a joyful Easter!

  17. Love the quilt so bright and cheerful perfect for Easter and your chickens to die for...

  18. Everything looks perfect ! I wish I could come... wanted to say that I loved looking at your garden photos. I too am a gardener and so far have planted 150 new plants this year ! I have been known to say, " Everyone loves a beautiful garden, but few are not too lazy to have one... " And isn't that the honest truth?

  19. It looks inviting...love the Italian Carrots...Happy Easter.

  20. really beautiful and great pictures too! (I now know why my pics don't look as good..because here in New England we only get sunlight for about 3 months June, July and August ;-) not jealous...much)

  21. This is absolutely fantastic! I feel like I just opened to a page in Country Living!!!
    Hope your day was as wonderful as these images!!!

  22. Kelley...I think we were separated at birth...I have a 12 place settings of unmatched sterling that I bought years ago at flea markets...I love using it. I also have the pigeon basket coffee table that you sold with your last house :)
    Beautiful Easter table by the way....

  23. I love the use of a quilt as a table cloth. I never would have thought of that!

  24. Hi! I'm back for a visit because I cannot stop thinking about your little jelly jars with the lids. They are sooooo beautiful. Are these a rare, hard to find item?

  25. Hey there!
    the jelly jars are really easy to find...I think I paid about one dollar for each of them. As for the carrots, I just don't remember what they were. I planted them from seed but there are gobs of great carrots to plant.

    Hope you had a beautiful Easter!

  26. just picked up this vintage McCoy at my favorite actique shop...I am loving it, you are so right about the perfect finish! For now it is sitting on a periwinkle blue old plant stand.
