Cheery Cherries

This week's tablescape was inspired by a gift from my dear friend Michele.  A few years ago, she gave me this darling sandwich tray, knowing that I love all things cherry.  
Then last year, Michele sent me two cute vintage cherry-patterned coffee cups with saucers.  I found a photo of a dinner plate in this pattern on Replacements.com -- what a great resource! -- but they didn't have any in stock. 
 A few years ago Target had these cute melamine plates, and with three cherry-themed elements, I had enough to set a breakfast table.
 Using the same red and white tablecloth from last week's table, I layered the cherry salad plates with plain white dinner plates and added some blue stemware.
The placesetting also included our everyday stainless and some blue-checked napkins rolled into blue napkins rings.

A vase of white tulips and a small beribboned cakestand completed the table.
All the elements came together to create a cheery breakfast table.

 Details:
Melamine salad plates:  Target a few years ago
Coffee cups:  Le Comptoir LCX4 (vintage, gift from Michele)
Blue goblets:  Villeroy and Boch
Stainless:  Towle Beaded Antique
Tablecloth:  Home Goods
Napkins:  Ancient!

Thank you for visiting my table this week!  I hope you will leave a comment before you leave to visit all the wonderful tablescapes at Susan's Between Naps on the Porch!

  8. This is indeed cheery cherry!!! It reminds me somewhat of one of my favorite characters: Mary Engelbreit!!! But it also reminds me of Valentine's Day. AND President's Day is not far off, and we all know that George Washington could not tell a lie about chopping down that ol' cherry tree! So this table has LOTS of reach!!!

  9. It's to cheery and CHERRY! I love the look of it. I really love that pedestal cake stand with the red ribbon you have on there. I was looking for something JUST like that in my recent Atlanta shopping excursion. Love it.

    The whole table makes me want to sit down and eat pancakes.

  22. Cherries are a favorite of mine, too.....just finished eating some cherry vanilla ice cream in all honesty. Your little platter is just darling and so are the cherry cups and saucers. I think cherries are just the "happiest" of fruits....they make one smile. Pairing the blue with the red really makes a statement.....anyone would love to sit at this table! I am new to blogging and would love a visit from you.

  27. Well, cherry anything makes me happy too. And I love cherries and red with blue, so your tablescape just sang to me. Love the gingham touches too. The kitchen in my new "forever cottage" will sport red, blue, and white; thanks for more inspiration. Brenda (a/k/a Cherry Pie and Roses everywhere)

  34. Hi Tricia,
    Your tablescape is a joy to look at. First of all, tulips are one of my favorite flowers. Secondly, the color combinations are just so cheerful! I love the colors together. All your cherry dishes are so cute, and I love the soft blue and white gingham napkins. I have seen the Villeroy and Boch goblets at our local Belks, and have wondered if I could use them with my Churchill blue and white dishes. They look great on your table! I posted my first tablescape yesterday so if you have time, please stop by and check it out. I appreciate getting views and comments, as I've just started blogging!
    Happy Valentine's Day,
    Denise

  38. Tricia, I am loving your cherry salad plates and cups and saucers! Cherries are so cheery! I am looking forward to seeing your Presidents' DayTable. I don't have a lot of Liberty Blue (just 8 dinner plates and 4 cups and saucers), so look forward to seeing how you set it up with more pieces or coordinating pieces.
    Blessings, Beth
