Tablescape Thursday! can’t say it’s here again because this is our first time on Thursday! I sooo love this tablescape day…I love creating mine and just as much, I love visiting all of yours!
Thank you, Susan, for being our gracious hostess!
Be sure to stop by Between Naps on the Porch ,after you’ve enjoyed your breakfast here, and visit all the other tremendous tablescapes!
Our scene opens in the cozy breakfast room, still bedecked with a pretty lit tree. The lovely vintage crystal chandelier is dimmed to a romantic glow and the music softly playing in the background is Natalie Cole crooning in her amazing voice, in a duet with her dad from her new album Natalie Cole, Still Unforgettable.
The candle is waiting to be lit, the rose petals have been scattered and the cherub is beckoning us to come and enjoy a romantic breakfast.
On the menu is Strawberry Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast with fresh strawberries and blueberries, Vermont maple syrup , Applewood Smoked Bacon, fresh orange juice and strong Assam tea.
The table has been prepared…first a soft pink linen cloth was laid out , then a romantic lacy runner was laid on top. Rose petals were scattered and vintage looking crackled mercury glass hearts (from HomeGoods) set at each place. White Irish linen napkins are embellished with golden cherub napkin rings. I’ve chosen my rose floral dishes (222 Fifth, English Rose pattern)…aren’t they soooo romantic?! The flatware is my everyday pattern (Wallace, Antique Baroque) and the goblets I use everyday as well
Aaaaahhhh…it’s all ready…this scene closes with kisses in between bites of french toast and strawberry cream cheese. ;-D
I hope this inspires you to plan a romantic breakfast for your Valentine!
Here’s my easy Strawberry Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast recipe:
*thick cut Italian bread (2 slices for each person)
*eggs, beaten (2 for each person) add to the beaten eggs, vanilla (I like a lot of vanilla) and a dash of 1/2 and 1/2.
*strawberry cream cheese (1 cntnr. will do 3 to 4 servings)
Mix together in bowl to dip bread into. Dip your bread allowing it to soak up a little bit of the egg mixture and then cook on griddle (or frying pan) until golden brown, sprinkling each side with cinnamon as it’s cooking.
When it’s done…set 2 pieces on a plate and cover one piece with a bunch of cream cheese (this varies according to taste) put the other piece on top and cut in half on an angle. Top with fresh sliced strawberries and blueberries and a touch of maple syrup.
This is quick, easy and a very impressive presentation…I’ve served it many times to guests and it’s always a favorite…it is actually requested!
