Rooster Table

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 from my dear friend Paula.  

I have received so many lovely gifts from beautiful friends over the years, so I'm going to start featuring them on my blog from time to time. 

Once in a while, I check the stats on my blog. It tells me what is popular, and these rooster plates with Mackenzie-Childs chargers are very popular. The plates have a wonderful scalloped design with tassels.

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

The centerpiece hen is nesting in a MacKenzie-Childs strainer. 

My weeks have been very full, and I promise to share two wonderful dessert recipes very soon!

Thank you for stopping by!

    I am happy to say I have the red roosters...

  2. I love this and have those same dishes! I've seen them in red too! Gotta love those Roosters.
    Be a sweetie,

  3. I always love seeing your Courtly Check, my friend, and paired with the rooster plates, it's a match made in heaven. Your runner that your friend gave you looks so great with the dishes and with your centerpiece.
    I have forgotten to mention how much a adore your Spring header. It makes me want to head for the mountains! I can almost smell the flowers.
    Have a wonderful weekend and I hope it's warming up in your neck of the woods! xo

  4. Love the rooster plates! Of course I am addicted to plates of all sorts:)

  5. I agree,'s always most pleasurable to surround one's self with those items given in love. Your friend Paula gave you something really great to build from for this tablescape! I love black & white, and this is a beautiful look. I love the way you mixed the patterns from the charger up. It really adds a lot of interest to the table.

    I hope that which has been filling your weeks has all been good! Take care, and have a wonderful weekend!

  6. So very cute and your courtly check is always admired. Love the rooster plates and the rooster sitting in your bowl. Happy birthday Debbie. I hope you have something wonderful planned. xo

  9. The plates are pretty and I love the cute idea for the centerpiece:@)

  10. Debbie that is one lucky rooster to be sitting in a MC strainer! I love how classy your table is all in black and white and MC everywhere.
    Besides the gorgeous table, I am drooling over the Clambake and cupcakes on your sidebar!
    I had to laugh about Grandpa reading the comments because he did the next morning and loved all the attention!

  11. Those rooster plates do look beautiful on the MC chargers, Debbie! I love the rooster sitting in the colander too :)

  12. Beautiful, Debbie! I can never see an M-C without thinking of you :)

  13. Debbie, I saw this when you posted but didn't have the opportunity to comment. I have the same dishes in red and have looked for the black since seeing yours on a previous post. Finally found a set of bowls. I'm eager to set a table featuring them, so thanks for the inspiration. Cute runner. Have you seen the new McK-C toile and CC table linens?

  14. Amei conhecer o seu blog,achei maravilhoso.Visite-me:

  15. The rooster plates are perfect with the Courtly Check. This is a very cute table, and I like the rooster in the CC colander.

  16. Beautiful runner and table. It all goes so well together! I too have the plates in red, and a few in violet that Marigene sent me. I have never been able to find 2 more place settings to add to them.
