Blueberry Breakfast Table

MAINE !!!  

Rocky coastlines, mountains, lakes, Appalachian Trail, outstanding college(s)🙂, and 
WILD BLUEBERRIES!  Maine has it all!
Blueberry Table  
Wild blueberries, you ask?  
This state berry is so important to Maine that it has its own blog, its own Maine Blueberry Queen, and its own State Wild Blueberry Commission!  Just one taste of this delicacy and you will understand.  Sweet or tangy?  Well, everyone has his or her own description, but “delicious” is always agreed upon.

The wild blueberry was first commercially harvested during the Civil War to provide canned nutrition for the Union soldiers, but European settlers had found native people tending the low growing bushes, drying the berries for winter food.  The Passamaquoddy tribe in Maine still harvests the berries.  Along with all the other growers in Maine, they use the blueberry rake to scoop berries by the hundreds.

My table this week was inspired by a gift basket Mr. Fun received, filled with Maine Wild Blueberry goodies, including jam, syrup, and the dishtowels I used for a table cover.  Like a good native New Yorker, he loves New England!!  So I’ve set a nice table for him on the deck, under the tree which used to be pink.

My blue Queen’s dishes rest on beautiful Lenox dishes and my favorite berry chargers.  The wicker placemats and napkin rings remind me of berry baskets.

Mr. Fun likes to eat healthy, so  I’ve provided vanilla yogurt, granola and blueberries (alas, not wild!) for him to mix up in a delicious concoction of his own invention.

Looks like we have company. They can eat the granola on the table.

After the fruit, grain and dairy, I add some protein.  Our little blue egg cups from France in Epcot hold the boiled eggs.

We’ve had our dairy, grain, fruit and protein.  Now for the fun stuff.  But we’ll need to use the Lenox dishes.

This set includes dishes in Plum Blossom, Pear Blossom, and Peach Blossom, each with a sprig of blueberries!

Our tree shades the table nicely.  We’ve had our healthy food and our goodies.  If you’d like to join me next time I’ll put out the china, make the puzzle pie,

  1. Linda, I’ll be right over, and I’ll even bring my own fork! YUM!

    What a super treat you fixed there, and I love your table. Cute dishes, napkins, napkin rings, glasses, and other accoutrements, but girl, I am in love with those egg cups! Oh, cuteness!

    I’m going to go eye that puzzle pie again because I am now craving a great big piece of it! I wonder if there is some way I can drag it with my mouse through the computer??? A girl CAN dream! 😉

    XO,

    Sheila

  2. Oh Linda, this is so beautiful. You have captured the blueberry theme phantastic. This tablerunner is adorable and the chintz pattern just looks like a blueberry pattern. And those Lennox plates – I would really love to have them. They are gorgeous. Yes, the wicker placemats and napkin rings remind to blueberry baskets, is true and looks so great at the table. All is so nicely done. Great tablescape. And thank you so much for the interesting informations behind the Maine Blueberries.
    Greetings, Johanna

  3. Linda, what a nice setting for breakfast, or any other meal.
    I love blue and white, so clean and crisp…that tablecloth is the cutest. I like the way you have layered all the dishes, ending with the chintz and…♥ those little chicken egg cups, they are darling. The puzzle pie looks delicious.

  4. This is just a gorgeous table and setting. I don’t even know where to begin. Of course the food makes me hungry, especially the non healthy dessert! I love your table runner. That added so much to your table and those blueberries on the cups are just enchanting. I love your egg cups in the dark blue. Everything is just fab.

  5. Right down the last detail, I really love it. My favorite thing on the table is that tea cup, but I really love all the pops of blue everywhere.

    “Blueberry blue” makes a beautiful tablescape!

  6. Berries, yogart, and a little granola sprinkled on top for some crunch is one of my favorite breakfasts. I always feel like I’m eating dessert. LOL
    This is a sweet tablescape. Love those blue hen egg cups and the blueberry textile. ~ Sarah

  22. Hi Linda, such a lovely table….truly inspiring!

    Thank you for joining the Rooster Party and displaying the Button. I appreciate it!

    So glad you are joining us and I will see you on August 6th. Have loads of fun.

    Hugs, Barb ♥

  23. Linda, I’m crawling through the screen and into your tablescape. Seriously. On 4 out of 7 mornings a week, blueberries and vanilla yogurt is my breakfast of choice. I’ll have to check out your Puzzle Pie recipe! Your table is so inviting-from the darling “runners” to the woven placemats and napkin rings to the egg cups and last but not least the wonderful china! Ahhhh. Perfection. Thanks!!!

  24. Hi Linda! Oh, my – I love every single picture from the berries to all your gorgeous dishes and table settings! That little blue chick egg cup is to die for – well, faint for anyway! 🙂
    Thank you so much for popping in to see me. To answer your question – the ice that fell off the glacier sounded like a bomb almost. When the smaller ice particles fell – they sounded like gun fire!
    The reason we’re wearing those silly white hats – they’re supposed to be chef hats. That night at dinner was called “Chef Night” and they had put the hats on the table for us to wear. We looked silly, but we didn’t care!
    I always appreciate you popping in.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia 😉
