I am participating today in Tablescape Thursday at BETWEEN NAPS ON THE PORCH. Be sure to check out other great tablescapes there. I am also going to participate in Foodie Friday at Designs By Gollum. Stop by and see all the wonderful food dishes the ladies have created.
I bought this wonderful rooster plate the other day. We have a new neighbor and I thought I would bake brownies and take them over and introduce myself. I like to give them the plate to keep…so I only had one plate. Their new house has a farmhouse feel…so I thought this would be perfect. When I got home I realize I had all these items to make a great table setting “Rooster” style.
I have a set of great amber colored glassware and I found this little antique green glass on the book shelves in my study.
I like the idea of using bandanas as napkins. They can be inexpensive and found at most discount stores.
A closeup of the roosters…made of wood with a hand carved look. I have these placed in my kitchen above the cabinets. I don’t have a country style kitchen, but somehow they still add charm.
