SUNDAY FAVORITE

 Today I'm joining Chari at Happy to Design for 

Sunday Favorites!

I first posted this April 20, 2010

 

LE COQ D'ORANGE

Today is Thursday and time for all of us to play with our dishes and create a tablescape  We get to share these with everyone thanks to our wonderful Hostess Susan at Between Naps on the Porch.

My tablescape today was inspired by a wonderful giveaway I won from one of my favorite blogs THE THRIFTY GROOVE .  Diann is one of the best blogging friends you could ask for and always has such thrifty and fun finds.  March was her Blog Anniversary and she had several giveaways.  I was lucky enough to win these....

(This is the photo from Diann's blog)

I was in Texas when I won this and could hardly wait to get home and check out this fabulous gift.  She also sent me some other really cute, sweet and funny items.  Thanks Diann you are the best.
Here is my table set for Dinner for Two
These cute little Roosters were part of the gift
 I kept trying different plates
until I found just the right combination

These Chargers are so large and such wonderful colors
The pattern is called Orange Rooster 
I started with a green place mat to pick up the colors in the roosters tail and in the sunflower leaves
I added a vibrant yellow Harlequin plate
 Then I added a dark green Fiesta lunch plate
Finished it with a smaller scalloped edge creamy yellow plate
Then topped it with the off white Roosters that Diann included in the gift
 I used off white handled silverware
 A green water goblet and a amber wine glasses
In this photo I used yellow handled silverware 
I couldn't decide which I liked better so it looks like I left one yellow and one off white set on the table
I used soft yellow napkins in a clear glass napkin ring edged with gold
I found these cute Rooster Salt & Pepper shakers 
in my dish closet.  They were a Goodwill find, made in Japan
I like this table with lots of warm colors
Diann I love these Chargers and they just might end up on my wall
they are that pretty! 


Hope you enjoyed this encore tablescape! 
 
Always,
Linda

BECKY said...

Sooo pretty! Every time I see roosters or chickens, I think of you. That sounds like of silly, doesn't it?! But I mean it in the best possible way! :)

Deb said...

I found the perfect Rooster rug that matches those plates at C Company.

Becky said...

I love rooster's Linda and this tablesetting is just so beautiful! I love the colors, as well! I have those same green water goblets, along with a different style of the same glasses and also plates & bowls. I aquired them from my grandmother. I wish I knew the story behind them, but sadly... I don't. I use them quite often in my tablescapes.

Oh Linda Sweetie...
I remember this one. I am so tickled you won. I love the rooster plates and your place setting for two is both elegant and festive. I love the use of the little roosters on top of the plates. What an element of surprise.

Your glasses and silverware were the crowning touch. I loved this. I would so enjoy sitting at this table to dine. What conversation we could have.

Hope you have a wonderful Tuesday sweet friend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry
