I was inspired to do a rooster table by this country creamer and two blooming Rembrandt dahlias on my deck.
Since the centerpiece would be rather rustic, I chose this blue bandanna tablecloth. Red chargers would work with the red dahlias I used in the centerpiece and I decided that Bob Timberlake's 'Ella's Rooster' plates would be used, since they had all the same colors. I pulled a couple of roosters down from above my cupboards to use with the floral centerpiece. I am very happy with the color coordination of the flowers ,the dishes and the roosters. I used four different colored bandannas for napkins.
This table was very quick and easy and will work great with the chicken I am planning for tonight's dinner.
This is a spin off blog from my main one where I showcase only the different tablescapes I do.
"Tablescaping" to me just means creatively setting a dinner table or arranging a side table. I especially like to do it in the summer, so I can incorporate my flowers. I collect both dishes and mid-century tablecloths. I have enough of each that I can have a lot of fun playing. I rarely set a table with all the same china, glassware, etc. I like to mix and match (there really is no fun involved in simply setting out an expensive matched set of "good" china, is there?) I love the challenge of designing a unique table with just a little cash and a lot of creativity.
