Spring brunch

I bought these plates at TJ Maxx the other day.  I thought they would be nice to use for Easter brunch for me and my hubby.  We have a small table for two on the back deck which we use to eat on during the summer.  I did a trial run to see what I could fit on the table.  So here it is.

For some reason I have been attracted to blue and orange this Spring.  I have always liked the colors but never really decorated with them much except for orange in the Fall.

I really love these plates.  They only had three since they were on clearance so I bought two.  I would like to have been able to get more. 
I hope that Easter Sunday weather will be nicer than this Sunday.  We are suppose to get between 3 to 6 inches of snow. Yuck!  Just when you think Spring is really here we get a bit of Winter thrown in.

  1. Lovely plates, stupidly I never though ofjust grabbing a couple if there wasn't a complete set, but they work so wonderfully here!

  2. Love blue and orange together! It's just the two of us most of the time, so if I find a pair of plates on clearance that I love, I don't hesitate to take them home. It's also fun to mix up complimentary plates on a table sometimes. I think you can have lots of fun using these pretty plates.

  3. How beautiful, hope you have a wonderful Easter Brunch. Thank you for sharing on our Four Seasons Blog Hop.

  4. Beautiful table, I love aqua and your use of it is perfect. If you remove the Word Verification, you will get more comments. If you need help, let me know.

  5. I hope you have a nice Sunday, no snow. Your brunch looks lovely.

  6. TJMax, Marshalls, Home Goods are all owned by same company. Try finding more at one of the other locations..I like them and especially your tablecloth. If I worked at Home Goods, I'd never bring home a paycheck! Love that store! Rule of thumb though, if you see something you like, you'd better buy it that day because it may not be there when you go back tomorrow.

  7. Great new plates for spring. I love the blue bird shape plate!
    Have a wonderful Easter brunch!


  8. What a perfect spot for some coffee on a weekend morning. Beautiful set-up!

  9. Oh how pretty! Thanks for joining us at the Home Sweet Garden Party! ♥ Brooke

  10. Your spring brunch looks wonderful! I do appreciate you sharing with Home and Garden Thursday,
