A big welcome back to our gardening expert P. Allen Smith! Today he’s moving indoor to show you how to create a wonderfully rustic tablescape using farm fresh eggs. I’ve had some of the eggs from Moss Mountain Farm and they are DELICIOUS! – Tobi

Creating a Rustic Egg Tablescape
A rustic and casual table setting is one of my favorite approaches to a breakfast/brunch tablescape. I like the intimacy of the smaller setting when I have just a few friends over. On chilly mornings, a fire flickering in the background adds warmth and ambience to this simple setting.
Light blue brightens and enhances the earth tones of this table setting. By blending those hues with the rustic colors of my summer kitchen the whole effect ‘hangs together’. Tawny brown wicker chargers add a lace-like texture to the hard and darker surfaces.
Toast slices in my antique ‘spoons’ napkin holder adds a touch of fun and garners comments from my guests.
The multi-colored plaid napkins also help to bring everything together and add a touch of autumn color to the table.
Rather than flowers, I used a bounty of eggs from our hens. These eggs came from the various breeds of heritage chickens we keep at the farm.
Bowls in the form of nests and the feathers on the plate follow the rustic farm theme.
