Rooster Tablescape


We surround ourselves with what we love. Much of the fun comes from using items that have meaning. This tablescape was inspired by a black and white table runner that I received as a gift this week from my dear friend Paula ;o) 



I found this baguette plate at a garage sale a few years ago for less than a dollar, and have been looking for a second one. The bottom of the plate says Bella Casa, Cheektowaga, NY. It fits nicely on the rooster salad plate.



The black and white rooster plates hopped in my cart at TJ Maxx the other day. I was exchanging an item from Christmas, and didn't have the receipt, so off to the dish department I went. 



The dinner plates have a wonderful scalloped design with tassels.



The layers consist of Pinzon chargers (bottom), MacKenzie-Childs Courtly Check, and Rooster plates.







The centerpiece hen is nesting in a MacKenzie-Childs strainer. My wish list has a rooster centerpiece on it, but for now, the hen will do.




I'm joining Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch. Thank you for stopping by!

  4. I would have liked to have those rooster plates hop in my basket too. The black and white is so striking and happy all the time. Love the checked plates and the runner is so full of motion. Joni

  8. How beautiful, Debbie. Your rooster plates are gorgeous. They look like the same dishes Kathleen has only in black and white instead of red. I love the little rooster in the MC colander ;)

  9. Darlin', this is absolutely to die for. I love every single thing on this adorable table. The little hen really caught my eye, too.:)

    You might need to check your link over at The Porch..I couldn't get it to work for me. Could be me, tho. :)

  11. Oh, I love all the different patterns that you used here. That's the beauty of black and white. The more patterns the better.

    And I love your rooster in the centerpiece. The little touch of red in there is perfect.

    This is a table worth replicating.

  13. Debbie, you setting is fantastic. I love black and white and this is done so perfectly. I am glad I haven't been to TJ Maxx recently. I would have wanted those plates too, especially the dinner plates. I love the checked pattern on them. They all look so great with your McKenzie Childs. Beautiful tablescape!

  14. Just lovely...I am so attracted to B&W and I love how you use your strainer...you have encourage me to pull mine out of the cupboard and display it (I have only used it for berries, so far). My new task is to paint 12 gold charger plates in B&W, to mimic M-C - I have a M-C Wish-List and they re not on the top, so this will hold me over!

  15. Love the Black and White theme. Very striking.

  16. Love the runner and the plates! They are the same as the red check ones I have. I didn't know they came in black. If I ever get out again, I will have to look. I had to go to 4 stores to get enough of the red. I wish the salad was paisley like the ones Marigene sent, which are also the same. But the red ones have a rooster...not fond of roosters! :)
    Great little table, Debbie!

  17. Debbie, this is just an adorable tablescape. From the roosters to the black and white MacKenzie Childs plates, it is all as cute as can be. Love your centerpiece, too. Amd the runner your friend gave you sets it off to perfection.

    XO,

    Sheila :-)

  19. Debbie,
    Although I'm not a fan of roosters, I enjoyed your tablescape! Love what Mackenzie~Childs does with everything! Your dinnerware and chargers are elegant! I, especially, adored your black and white table linens! One of my favorite combinations are black, white and green. You can be assured that I 'll visit again, soon!
    Fondly,
    Pat

  21. I do love black and white, and those rooster plates are great. Isn't it funny how things just leap into your cart when shopping at TJ Maxx? I have the same problem! ;-)

  22. The table runner looks excellent deb!

  23. Beautiful, I like them so much more than the red/white ones. I saw those at TJMaxx a couple weeks ago but they only had a few so I passed, afraid I wouldn't find enough to do a table...will probably regret not getting them.

  28. Oh I really LOVE those rooster plates - they are so charming with that fabulous border on the dinner plates. the MC plates are a great combination with the rooster plates. I received the exact same table runner from a very dear friend of mine! I thought I was reading the words from my blog when I read about your table runner. Great tablegscape. laurie

  29. Debbie, needless to say I'm crazy about this table setting. Hadn't seen this pattern in the black. Now I'm going to be driving myself crazy till I find myself a set of the black. Love this!!!
    I've already joined up as a follower and added you to my blog roll. I do think I'm going to be hanging out here from now on. I'll be coming back for return visits to these fabulous settings, especially if I can't find a set of my own. LOL

  30. I've missed a lot on your blog! You've been busy while I"ve been a slacker lol. LOVE LOVE LOVE the black rooster plates. Some red ones and some blue ones JUST like them hopped in my buggy a few months ago too. Black wasn't an option or it would be in my cabinet too!
