My mother-in-law introduced me to the joys of Tuesday Morning years ago. If you love the thrill of the hunt when it comes to finding a unique piece of decor or a great deal, this is the store for you!
They focus on name-brand closeout items and their assortment is frequently changing. If you see something you like you’ll want to scoop it up because it won’t be around for long. Needless to say, that’s exactly what I did when I saw all their fun plaid items, including this apron!
How to Create a Fabulous Plaid Christmas Breakfast Table
1. Don’t be afraid to mix all the plaids!
When I was at the store I found a variety of different plaid prints. Rather than just go with one, like the buffalo check, I decided to mix several different prints together. Laying them out at the store helped me achieve the right mix. I found cute cloth napkins, placemats, a table runner, and a melamine serving tray and bowls.
2. Christmas goodies make for the best (and easiest!) centerpiece
3. Add a special touch to each place setting in under 1 minute
4. Skip the tablecloth for a runner
I don’t know about you, but I almost never use a tablecloth. Runners and placemats are less formal and require less washing and ironing! This fabric buffalo check runner was only $9.99. I added two small berry wreaths on each side of the runner and put a battery operated candle in the middle.
5. Think beyond the table
Make an even bigger impact by incorporating other decor surprises around your kitchen. I added this pretty plaid and burlap bow to a back of a chair and hung a bright berry wreath on the window behind the table with a suction cup.
On the kitchen counter I displayed a couple sweet little battery operated light up houses and a mini tree from Tuesday Morning. They even had plaid gift wrap and ribbon!
Are these houses not the cutest? Tuesday Morning had a variety of styles for only $12.99 each!
6. Be sure to make time to enjoy it
Even though I photographed this table well before Thanksgiving, I wanted to actually enjoy it as a family before taking it down. My mom was in town visiting and we spent a Saturday morning having our fancy breakfast in our pjs. I made hot cocoa, eggs, and bacon to add to our treats. It was a special time together, and I can’t wait to do it all over again on Christmas morning!
