Chickens Again

My Mom is still visiting and since she loves chickens and loves blue, I decided to do this very casual table when we had one of Mr. Pressed Pant's golf buddies here for dinner.  It was not girly foo-foo fussy but Mom and I had fun putting it together.  I started with these napkins from Old Time Pottery, bought with her in mind.  Here's a link to the chicken table I did last year when she visited.

I just took those colors of cream, navy and red and started setting the table.

These place mats were from Old Time Pottery, too, and the red flatware was from some other discount store.  I can't even remember which one.

Then I added this squarish blue dinner plate, also from Old Time Pottery, and the red scalloped salad plate from Ballard Design.

The red water goblets are vintage, and these wine stems are Juliska.  They were a gift from a reeeeeealy good friend!

The napkin was gathered into a point at the center.......

and held with a chicken wire napkin ring from Pottery Barn.

Also from Pottery Barn, these chickens held simple placecards.

I chose two of these red pots with scalloped edges and..........

filled them Kroger daisies and nandina berries from our yard.  These simple flowers seemed like farm-yard blooms.

Boy!  I should call this post "Ode to Old Time Pottery", as this rooster is from there, too.  I used him for a post about a breakfast table I did a few months ago.  You can see it here.

Here's how the center of the table looked with the rooster and two pots of daisies on a cream twill runner.

I have some chicken salt and pepper shakers, but I couldn't find them.  I don't have Alycia Nichols' (Table Twenty-Two) inventory system!!!!  So, I used these, as I thought they had a farmhouse look.

And this held peach pie, as our guest, Corey, was leaving Atlanta after about five month's of business here, and returning to California.  I wish I had thought about serving him grits, too!
