Gone Plaid for Roosters (T)

I've gone plaid for roosters!

 My centerpiece is a combination of a faux planter of sunflowers (from Pier 1 last year)...

 ...and a MacKenzie  Childs courtly check enameled pedestal platter turned upside down.

I was pleasantly surprised that the pedestal and the flower pot matched in size perfectly!

 I continued with the plaid theme with my napkins drawing on some green found in the pedestal platter.

 Napkin rings from Pier 1 (several years ago) added to the cozy appeal of this table.

 Brunch anyone?

One of my favorite stemware pieces called Trellis (by Fitz & Floyd) seemed perfect for this table setting.

 I kept the dishware simple with a black edged plate (got them from Horchow several years back and they are labeled CMG made in Portugal) layered on top of the Pier 1 chargers and framed by bamboo silverware from Horchow.

 The Backyard Rooster (from April Cornell) features various roosters and a small pompom on each corner.  (They have an oblong on sale for a very reasonable price "here")

As you can see my backyard is in full bloom.  We are enjoying such a great summer up here. 

So that's a wrap with my
Gone Plaid for Roosters!

Love Your Creativity 


  1. I've said it before, Liz you set the most lovely tables! I love April Cornell tablecloths and have many in my linen chest. The pretty green plaid goes so well with the centerpiece. How nice the MK pieces fit into each other. I'm so glad you are enjoying a good summer. We are quite dry here with watering occurring daily. Hopefully we will get some rain from a storm that is threatening us this afternoon.

  2. Hi Liz,
    You never disappoint with your table settings. I love the chair napkin rings. How adorable. Have a great new week.

  3. Liz, Your table is set so sweetly and the views of the garden make it perfect. I think just sitting there and drinking coffee would be dreamy. I need to get busy and make a nice table here. It's been piled with meds , books and office print outs for months. LOL.
    Blessings to you, xoxo, Susie

  4. What a sweet table Liz. The April Cornell tablecloth with it’s cute roosters is lovely. I also have several in my stash. The black edged plates are unique. I love Horchow, especially on sale. Those chair napkin rings are darling. What a clever idea with the MKC cake stand turned upside down. The vase looks perfect. The glimpse of your beautiful gardens makes a beautiful backdrop. Happy Wednesday.

  5. What a happy and delightful table! I love your tablecloth and the centerpiece is such fun! Who wouldn't be thrilled to be asked to dine there?!

  11. Well, isn't this the cutest!! You are so clever to turn the MKC stand over and use it that way, I LOVE that Liz!! I am crazy over sunflowers this time of year and they look so fabulous with black and white and roosters!

  14. Dear Liz,
    You create the most welcoming Table Settings. They are dressy and sharp without being overdone and fussy. Love the centerpiece and oh these napkins and tablecloth too. Hope you are enjoying the late days of August!

  15. Your table settings are always so lovely, Liz! I love your plaid theme and the pretty decorative pieces you pair it with! Plaid has become so trendy these days and I find myself wanting to use it in everything I create - but of course in purple tones! Lol!
