Ants at Brunch

This week for the family brunch, I decided to bring some ants to the table… an indoor picnic with some little critters. Red and white checked makes the table feel very summery… is that a word?

Start with the tablecloth

Red geraniums…. Unfortunately, not enough blooms but pretty for the table anyway.

Ants coming to visit….

Mixing checks and polka dots. I love bandanas for napkins


The iron flatware and napkin rings are so pretty and black always helps to anchor any table. 

We put the doughnut holes on the “Share” plate, the boys need a reminder

The grandchildren liked it but the baby just wanted to eat the ant!

Brunch Menu:
Doughnut Holes
Assorted Juices and Jams

I am joining these ladies and looking at all their tables. Susan at Between Naps on the Porch and the Style Sisters.


  1. Super cute~love the ants with the red geraniums!

  2. Cute and funny post.Hope everyone enjoyed the tablescape...Love sujatha...:):)

  3. Very nicely done, Cynthia!!! I love it that the baby just wanted to eat the ants! That's so cute!

    I like how you used the bandana napkins with this tablescape. They really work, especially with the black of the ants in the other details. The polka-dot dishes work great here, too!

    I hope you'll have a terrific weekend ahead! Take care!

  4. I always love this theme! It's perfect for summer! Red is such a happy color, don't you think? And the bandanas? Too cute! Thanks for sharing.

  5. So the mix of dots and checks.

  6. I love the ants! This is a wonderful happy brunch table that should bring a smile to anyone lucky enough to be having there breakfast at your home. Did you make your ants? They are so cute!
