LE COQ D'ORANGEToday 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.
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
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!
