1/20 Tablescape Tuesday

Tablescape Tuesday Logo

It’s Tuesday which means it is time for Tablescape Tuesday hosted by Susan and her blog Between Naps on the Porch.

When I went to move Mr. Rooster and Mrs. Chicken from the center of the kitchen table I was asked, “Can’t you change the table and let them stay another week?” So if the table looks similar to last weeks Tablescape Tuesday …. yes..it is similar…but different!

room

I removed the platter they were both sitting on, and placed Mrs. Chicken on a small pedestal (I do hope Mr. Rooster puts her on a pedestal every once and awhile). I removed the three eggs and added the orange glass ball (I have a feeling Mrs. Chicken is eyeing it and thinking, “I did NOT do THAT!)

For the place settings I used my square Tuscan sunflower plates. The sunflowers go well with the one at the base of Mr. Rooster…..

I love the big sunflower on the salad plate…..

and the four little sunflowers in the corners of the dinner plates…..
