Join me over at Between Naps On The Porch with our hostess Susan for the very first Tablescape Thursday of 2010.
Today's tablescape is all about coffee beans and the heady aroma my kitchen is filled with.
I so much want to like coffee! I love the smell, I love the idea, I love the ritual and
the passion people show for their favorite beverage. Just can't get it past my taste buds,
although I used to drink a cup occasionally back in my youth just to be sociable.
Eeewwww in my mouth, even dosed with lots of cream and sugar.
Who doesn't remember these coffee ad names, tag lines and situations from the past?
1. Good to the Last Drop.
2. Everything you love about coffee.
3. We’ve secretly replaced the coffee with…
4. Mrs. Olsen
5. Celebrate the moments of your life.
6. The best part of waking up (extra credit if you can hum the jingle)
7. Our House
8. Fill it to the rim.
10. Juan Valdez
Ahhh yes, Juan Valdez ...... that's what all this has been leading up to. I do so much want
to like the pure 100% Colombian coffee that Juan hand picks and brings down the
mountain side with his little burro. Here's a vintage Vera tablecloth covered in
coffee beans and even Juan and his burro with their latest load of beans.
The chargers are Italian glass, white "Medallion" dinner plates are Rosenthal,
decorative salad plates from Home Goods, Pier 1 stemware.
The black fruit bowls are Post 86 Fiesta.
Vintage Antique Gold Fiesta included the Marmalade, small platter and large salad bowl.
And two alternative napkins that could easily work with this tablescape.
If you are a coffee lover, please take a sip for me and enjoy!!
I think I'll just stick with a big bowl of coffee ice cream.
