French Country Inspired Tray Vignette

Memorial Day was on and off rain all day.  After we ate I felt like doing something so I put together a little tray vignette.

  Roosters, lemons and boxwood seem very French like to me!  This oversized white rooster has been difficult for me to find a permanent home for but today he's anchoring my vignette!

I wanted to add something else white so this little milk pitcher worked in nicely.  The napkin took the place of flowers!

Some of you that follow me may remember this little metal basket and the two cow plaques that lost their spot when I re-did the wall where the plate rack is now.  You can see a post with the basket "here" and the plate rack "here"  I thought this added a nice country appeal to the vignette.

This preserved boxwood is a little find from Pier 1 a while back.   The lace doily hitched a ride to my home via a tablecloth that got bundled up at my Mom's when I visited for Mother's Day- see that post "here".

I couldn't leave this on the table because it's too large for everyday use but I did relocate it and I'll share that soon!
