January In The Breakfast Room

Those of you who stop by often know that my 
Breakfast Room is my favorite room to keep pretty. 

I use a simple formula of:

neutral paint on the walls
simple white curtains
 and a set table with some color. 

Nothing fancy and super simple. 

Yesterday, I made a trip to HomeGoods and couldn't resist buying a few things for my favorite room to decorate. 

I most often use a white or solid color tablecloth, but I thought this pattern was pretty. I couldn't resist buying the matching napkins, as well. 
Not sure if I'm going to use them as napkins or make a couple of throw pillows for the sofa in the adjoining Family Room. They would look great on my grey sofa. 

An inexpensive way to have different ways to change up  a table without spending a lot of money is to buy several sets of pretty salad plates and pair them with some plain white dishes.
Everyone should have one set of plain white dishes. They go with everything. 
These salad plates were $3.99 each. 

The gray placemats were only $4.99 for a set of 4, so I purchased a set in cream, as well. 

I pulled accessories from around the house for the centerpiece. 

Tonight we are having chicken soup and will be serving it in the soup toureen that my mother in law gave me. 

The tablecloth may be a little busy for some(even I think it is), so I plan to look for a white table topper or make one that shows off about 8" of  pattern all the way around the side of the table. 

Hope you all have a fabulous and beautiful day!
