1/13 Tablescape Tuesday

Tablescape Tuesday LogoToday is Tablescape Tuesday, hosted by Susan and her blog Between Naps on the Porch. Let’s go into the kitchen and find a place to sit down …….

 

Jan 13- room

I wanted to use Mr. Rooster as the centerpiece……so I grabbed a platter and placed Mr. Rooster on it and then found Mrs. Chicken… and even added a few eggs (mainly so I could see Mr. Southern Daydreamer roll his eyes, lol)

Jan 13-centerpiece

The table is set….come sit down!

Jan 13- place

The rooster salad plates continue the rooster theme. I found these at Hobby Lobby.

Jan 13- placesetting

Under the salad plate is the napkin (looks like it needs a little ironing)……

Jan 13- napkin

and the dinner plate….

Jan13-dinnerplate

The dinner plate and platter used in the centerpiece are Bordallo Pinheiro. I have picked up a few pieces here and there (Marshalls and Roses). I really like the texture of the dishes.

Thanks for stopping by and visiting my Tablescape Tuesday and don't forget to visit Susan's blog Between Naps on the Porch to see more wonderful table settings!

    So.....what's for dinner?

  21. Susan, Your rooster and hen are so pretty, and how cute to put the eggs on the platter (just so your husband could roll his eyes-they just don't get it!) Your salad plates and dinner plates are great. I so agree about the texture of that dinner plate-it adds so much to the table. laurie

  38. How cute. You really ran with the rooster idea and created an original tablescape. The colors are rich, warn and inviting. I can imagine a beautiful fire going in the fireplace and some nice mulled wine before dinner, maybe an herb roasted chicken? (no offense to Mr. Rooster :) )

  40. I love your roosters, and your tablecloth oh yah and everything. My daughter lives in Oklahoma and she always takes me to Hobby Lobby when I visit. We always have so much fun there looking for treasures for me to bring home.

  41. Roosters make the best centerpieces. Of course, I am one of those rooster people, so I would think that. :) The dinner plates work so nicely to tie it all together. Lovely table.

  43. Do you have an infinite number of dishes? Every week it's a whole different look. I'd love to play along with this, but I have like, 2 sets of dishes. Paper and plastic. No clue what I'll do if we have company.

    Okay, I might give it a go next week. Remind me?
