3/5 Tablescape Thursday

It’s time for Tablescape Thursday hosted by Susan and her blog Between Naps on the Porch.  Today we are headed to the kitchen where we find Mr Rooster perched back in the middle of the table (I think he must like it there…because he seems to find his way back there when I am not watching!)

Mar5table

I went with a simple place setting this week. I have been admiring these dishes at Mashalls for awhile and finally decided to pick up a few dinner and salad plates…….  Mar5placesetting

The colors go perfectly with my kitchen…. I may “need” to pick up a few bowls or serving pieces to go with them. I’m not sure of the pattern. On the back is the following…..

Ma5backplate

Anybody know the name of the pattern?

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

    They are really beautiful. I think I may be learning to like Roosters more than I used to. Yours is really nice.

  7. HI Susan! Oh, these roosters, they do like center stage, don't they! :) He is a cutie. OH, I've been admiring those dishes too! I have lots of other pieces that look like these: rooster pitchers that we bought in Italy, covered casserole, platters and now look at these dishes! I love 'em . I'm coveting them!
    Your table looks great!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia :)

  40. Hi Susan
    What a great excuse to pick up some pretty plates. I think you should pick up some bowls while they still have them. They go perfectly with that handsome Mr. Rooster too.
    Lovely table.
    thank you for sharing

  43. Susan, I saw the same pattern at my Marshall's here, but only a few pieces... Sorry for the late visit, we had no internet since 12:30 this morning. Beautiful choice for today. I love your dishes!

    Have a great Thursday!

  44. Darling set, no I don't know the name of them, wasn't it on the box? That Mr. Rooster is a handsome fellor. I bet he don't eat much. Hope to see you tomorrow for Project Friday. Hugs, Rosemarie

  45. Hi Susan, it's always so nice to see Mr. Rooster. Love your new dishes, the colors are yummy. Thanks for the peek, Maryrose

    ReplyDelete
  46. Lovely setting. The rooster really goes nicely too with the color scheme. :)

    And yes the pregnant lady was very very careful on that trail which is why we didn't go too far. ;) However we're an adventurous lot over here in the southwest and I'm not quite the size of a house just yet. LOL

  47. Susan, I love that china too. My favorite color combination. The rooster looks great with the china. laurie

  48. Oh I've admired those dishes too! I really like the colors and your rooster is a fun centerpiece!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Mr. Rooster sure knows a good thing when he sees it ... looks quite at home among the pretty china.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Clearly, that rooster likes to hobnob with pretty plates. I love those dishes -- so Italian looking. They are familiar, but I am not sure I've seen their exact matches, but certainly similar.

    So pretty. Your rooster is quite the handsome devil, too. My mom loved roosters and I am lucky enough to have some of her favorites. One keeps insisting on roosting on our old oak table, won't behave and stay on the windowsill!

  51. I love those Italian plates that you used in your tablescape.  Seems like I saw some at our Marshall's recently.  I have 2 place setting from a fancy Italian shop here in Michigan but have not been able to bring myself to pay the hefty price to add more to our collection.  After seeing the ones that you used here I may have to skip over to Marshall's and see what they have left.Gorgeous post.  Thanks for vising my first Tablescape Thursday.  It is nice to meet you.Sue

  57. Does your lovely roaster have a special name. I would love to have one but couldn't think what to put in a search engine other than china roaster? thank you, Margaret

    ReplyDelete
  58. Hi, Susan. I just happened upon your blog and found this post. First - I love all your dishes and table settings. Absolutely gorgeous! The pattern you bought at TJ Maxx is similar to something I just order from www.pierredeux.com. It's a charger called Rouen Faience. They look very similar altho not an exact match. I would guess your dishes are of a similar Provencal design. I need to get to TJ Maxx pronto!
