Lilly-fied Christmas Breakfast

I wanted to have a breakfast to celebrate the Christmas season and couldn't think of a theme to create. Then I came upon the Lilly 'Santa' pattern and it all fell into place! I knew I could count on my Savannah friend Lynn Whelan to put together something precious for me to wear...The newest addition to my "Prissy Apron Collection" designed by Lynn Whelan herself using the Lilly 'Santa' fabric and other patterns and pom fringe to coordinate.


Here's a closeup photo of the pattern...I just love it!
I wore my pink Revas by Tory Burch and some cute Santa jewelry.

I found more inspiration for my breakfast from the book "A Guide to Colorful Holidays" by Lilly Pulitzer and Jay Mulvaney.

It's all pink and green in my dining room at The Roost!
The table is set for my Lilly-fied Breakfast...
The centerpiece on the dining table...a pink tree
Decorated with pink gingham bows and pink and green ornaments...
The placesetting...
Silver monogrammed napkin rings adorn the cute Lilly-fied napkins...designed by Lynn Whelan.
Lilly Pulitzer goblets...
The beverage is Raspberry Sunrise Mimosas...recipe from the Lilly Pulitzer "Holidays" book
Lynn Whelan also made these precious coasters for moi!
A monogrammed pitcher of the mimosas!
Little pink banners on the straws...one side--"Merry Christmas"
Flip side--"Chin Chin!"
Y'all get your party favors! Pink scalloped boxes, adorned with my monogrammed stickers {by Melissa Caligiuri} and stuffed with green shred and Lilly Pulitzer 'Wink' cologne samples...wrapped in cello and tied with pink gingham ribbon!
Another pink tree on the sideboard!
The top of the tree is adorned with pink gingham ribbon and my monogram!
The ornaments and garland...by Lilly Pulitzer!

Pretty pink packages...
The Food:
I served Chicken Hash on Waffles and followed Lilly's advice..."Have easy options"--Eggo Waffles!
The recipe for the Chicken Hash is on page 133 of the "Holidays" book by Lilly Pulitzer.
I also served a Pomegranate and Pineapple Salad...recipe on page 173 of the "Holidays" book!
Thank you for visiting with me today...I'll be back on Saturday to wish y'all a Merry Christmas!!!!

Miss Janice, your apron is très adorable! And the pink & green centerpiece tree...while I do love Lilly, and I've seen some very cute pink trees, I must say, I do believe that is the cutest pink & green tree I've seen thus far!
Merry Christmas!

Wow, this is beautiful - a refreshing twist on Christmas! Of course I love the apron - I have my own of Cath Kidston and some 50s retro ones that belong to my Grandmother. Thanks for sharing! Have a lovely Christmas.

Poor Mr. Ken, having to eat amongst all that pink. He probably didn't care though getting those yummy pancakes. Give him a hug for me for taking such great pictures for you.
