LAURA ASHLEY BRUNCH


Laura Ashley Hazelbury




I set this table for brunch for my family when they were all here before Easter so you may see Peter Rabbit peering back at your from the centerpiece, you can go here to see the post. The set works so well with all of my Beatrix Potter collectibles.

This is one of my favorite Laura Ashley Sets, in the Hazelbury pattern. Each place setting is a different pattern in the the same design. I purchased the set back in the eighty's. This set I use for more casual entertaining during the spring and summer months, its usually what I grab to set the table in my kitchen for family dining, for last minute plans, and unexpected guest.

















A few flowers still in bloom




This is the first time to use this set for the season. I have service for eight and a complete tea service in this patten. I like to use my blue splatter ware serving pieces with this set.

  25. I remember when Laura Ashley stores were easy to find in most cities. Whenever we'd move I'd head for Laura Ashley for curtain fabric - my remnant box is like a history or LA fabric! The dishes are so very pretty - like a garden on the table.

  26. O, this is just GORGEOUS! I LOVE IT...your table looks so pretty and to have a tea set to match is just icing on the cake. Love it all..

    I am getting a post ready for a garden party coming up and my flowers, yard, shrubs, trees are just PITIFUL. We are in one of the worst droughts we've been in for a long long while...plus the fact that our CITY water source comes from a couple of lakes that are going DRY, so we have to limit our watering...no actual RULE on it yet..just been told that we better conserve as much as possible if we want drinking water. Pitiful...
    anyway, I am using last year photos of my flowers...they were so pretty back then.

  36. Sometimes I miss things!! I just love this tablescape, your Laura Ashley china is stunning, happy and cheery! I love the arrangment with the lavander in the pitcher, so pretty. I wish I could get some L.A. china, but very difficult from here, see, the mailing is very expensive, almost the china cost! Thank you for the lovely and sweet comments on my girls! Lots of hugs, FABBY
