Father's Day Breakfast Table

This is my Father's Day breakfast table from last Sunday. In my opinion, a good design is when you don't overdo it. I wanted to keep the accessories to the minimum to maintain the simple classic table.

Today's tablescape is with Lenox rooster plates and dahlias from my garden.

Here is my homemade pomegranate jam along with butter, served in tiny cloche dishes.

Two egg cups are used to serve salt and pepper.

Two tiny roosters accessorized the table.

I love these beautiful dahlias from the garden.

    I've never tried pomegranate jam -- sounds intriguing. Your table is lovely in its simplicity, and your dahlias are spectacular! The little cloches are very pretty, as are the unusual spreaders. You always show us wonderful things, and it's a treat to visit you on Tablescape Thursdays!
