~Getting Ready for a Cozy Country Farm Breakfast~

Here at Quaker Hill Farm I don't usually fix much breakfast.  My Hubby is not real keen on that meal!  I try to tell him it is the most important meal of the day.  Every once in awhile I fix a hearty good old fashioned breakfast anyway!  It is just like what I would imagine a Quaker Hill Farm house breakfast used to be.  Join me as I prepare the table.  Let's just see if I can entice him to eat!  As the old saying goes we eat with our eyes first!

In our old barn I found this very ancient drop leaf table.  I had it refinished and now it resides in our kitchen.  It is a little creaky, but has stood the test of time for sure. 

I chose, of course, my favorite color of red for the primary colors in the table setting.  The red gingham tablecloth fits the table just right.  We had received these farm dishes as a wedding gift 46 years ago!  They remind me of the cows, pigs, and sheep that used to be such a part of Quaker Hill Farm.

I love anything Vintage.  The scales, biscuit jar, lamp base, and salt and pepper shakers are truly one of a kind!  

Another sweet find were two vintage potholders.  I thought they looked pretty cute sitting under the silverware.  



The Napkins are simply two dishcloths.  My Tansy is just starting to open.  I just made a simple bouquet and tied it onto the napkin with a red polka dot ribbon.

 As you can see next to the shelf and chair, I have a myriad of aprons ready to wear at a moments notice.   

 We are having baked oatmeal, a breakfast casserole, fresh piping hot black coffee, juice, and a fruit tray.  This should get his day started in Farm fashion!  Trust you will have your own farmhouse breakfast soon! (Even if you live in the city!)  Blessings this day!
