Just Like Breakfast At The White House!

We had a full house for breakfast this morning for our special President's Day "Presidential Breakfast"!
We served guests on our special White House china.  One special thing about our breakfast table is that I love to set a different table each morning, and I am fortunate to have several sets of china to do that!  There is usually also some sort of theme involved! Of course, with the President's Day holiday, we could not resist using the White House china, which I have purchased at the Kennedy Library in Boston, the Virginia Historical Society here in Richmond, and the Victorian Parlor, a favorite shop of mine in Lexington, Virginia.  Mac gave me a very special Lincoln coffee pot with the sugar bowl and creamer for Christmas this year!  Today's place settings featured reproduction china of the Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, James Monroe, George Washington, James Madison, Ulysses S. Grant, and James Madison White Houses!  The colorful plates really popped on our blue table cloth!
