Breakfast, Beautifully......

I don't know about the rest of you, but our home is practically a hotel during the summer. We are always having family and friends stay with us this time of year, which is such a treat, and since they take the time to visit us, I like to make our loved ones feel special and appreciated. One of the ways that I do this is by serving delicious foods and creating an atmosphere that is not something they would have everyday. I thought you might enjoy seeing some photos that I took of one of my special breakfasts. Since it is summer, I love eat outdoors as often as possible, and mornings are perfect since the weather is generally pure perfection that time of day.
I love going all out for my out town guests and using my silver flatware and making unique flower arrangements in unexpected containers.

I also love bringing some of the indoors outside like pretty pillows & rugs, it makes your space look like an extension of your home, which only makes your loved ones feel even more special. I also like to use other things like this bench to hold the extras that we may be using during our meal, it adds a relaxed feeling to the environment, especially when you are using so many pretty things that others may think are too nice to use for a breakfast....
I hope that you have enjoyed these photos and that maybe they have inspired you to do something special sometime soon.
