I've had this rooster centerpiece for quite a while. I first used it for a "hen party".
When I found these rooster salad plates at World Market, I knew I had a new way to use her.
I set the table for four in the dining room with no tablecloth or pads. My mom was with us and she loves chickens, so I knew I had to do this table sometime during her visit.
Starting with a bright yellow placemat from Kohl's, I decided to use yellow, red and orange with a touch of green.
These straw chargers were stacked with creamy plates from Target, then a tomato-red plate from Ballard, then the rooster salad plate.
I'm not sure, but I think this flatware came from Target, too. It's yellow and red with a touch of green and I remember that I bought it for Mexican tablescape.
These versitile napkins are from Kohl's Home collection and the straw rings came from World Market this past summer.
I just plopped some grocery store flowers into these sassy little metal holders. These came from the floral wholesaler and I love them, but they leak! I line them with a baggie.
Pottery Barn makes this candle holder and glass hurricane. These pillars sure do say "orange"!
Red is brought in with these vintage stems, and I used these glasses in straw sleeves for wine. They came from Tenille and Company in Atlanta.
Pottery Barn again!
Old, sturdy Imperial Glass salt and peppers from our wedding glassware. I have several pair of these and, boy I use them a lot.
I served wine made by our friend, Tuck Beckstoffer on a wicker coaster. If you haven't tried this wine, be sure to look for it. It's moderately priced and oh, so good!
We had such a nice night eating and talking and drinking and laughing! The four of us represented three generations, but the conversation was spirited and steady! We also had a good time cooking together and what do you think I served? CHICKEN!!!
