Valentine's Day Brunch for 2

My table is set for Valentine's Brunch:
Each place setting has a milk glass covered dish to hold cheesy scrambled eggs:
Eggs, fruit salad, apple cinnamon muffins, crisp bacon, mimosas and tea and coffee will be served.
Cheery poppies brighten up the table:
The fruit bowls ($.59 ea at thrift shop), cups and saucers ($.39 ea at thrift shop), and main dishes (6/$3.00 at a garage sale) are Westmoreland milk glass. The Toscany heart shaped dishes were purchased years ago at Marshall's.

I handpainted the charger plates:
as well as the individual butter dishes and salt and pepper shakers:
And for the sweet tooth: 2 jars of candy :

  25. Until you told us that you painted them, I thought that they were the MacKenzie Childs Courtly Check. Great job! The check is the perfect animated detail for your darling Valentine tablescape. Thank you for inviting us for a peak. Cherry Kay

  29. Can I just say WOW! I love this beautiful tablescape which includes some of my all-time favorites: black and white and checks! I love how you mixed in the milk glass and are using the covered dishes for scrambled eggs is brilliant.

    The little hand-painted butter dishes are adorable and something I think I will have to try to copy. Love them and the hand-painted chargers. Again, I would love to try this.

    Thanks for sharing this great 'scape!
