A Tablescape for a Rooster Party Parade

by Michelle on August 26, 2009

This is a dual post combining Tablescape Thursday and the Show us Your Rooster Party! It should be fun albeit a bit of a long post so hold on!

When I set my table for the Rooster Party I wanted it to be bright and colorful and fun! So I just went through my cabinets setting aside the brightest colors I could find!

The bright striped napkins, $.10 each, came from the Goody Barn in Flint, MI, long out of business. The Goody Barn was the best place to shop and so much fun. You never knew what they were going to have from one week to the next. I could literally spend hours in the store and because it was about the size of a Walmart I never really saw everything they had and I doubt anyone did! There was no rhyme nor reason to their stock, washing machines could be next to office supplies and mixed in with the office supplies you might find toothpaste.

I just picked up this small woven hen a few weeks ago at a local flea market. It’s actually a music box and ironcially plays the theme from “Doctor Zhivago”! The weaving is very detailed even down to the little chicken feet!

I bought this shallow bowl years ago at TJMaxx. I usually serve our dressing it in at Thanksgiving.

My Revol Roaster! This is my favorite roaster and I use it all the time. Unfortunately this design is now discontinued!

My Mom gave me this set of little chicks. They usually hang out in my kitchen but can pop up just about any where I need a splash of color!

This is my Rooster Roaster and it’s the perfect size to roast a duck!

This is my big Rooster and he usually stays pretty close to the fireplace in the Dining Room. On occasion he has wandered out to the porch and patio but he does not stay for long.

And last but not least is my Kitchen Twine Dispenser with a Rooster on top! I use my kitchen twine all the time and picked up this dispenser at Homegoods a few years ago.

  • Mid-Atlantic Martha August 27, 2009 at 12:56 am

    I do admire all your roosters — love seeing them on everybody’s blog. Nothing like roosters in the kitchen. (or in the oven)

  • ellen b August 27, 2009 at 1:29 am

    What fun. I just realized I could have posted my rooster table setting for today and tomorrow :0)
    You’ve got some unique roosters!

  • Sue August 27, 2009 at 1:51 am

    I love your use of color…My whole house is nothing but bright colors in every room…So cheery and I love the Rooster twine holder…very neat. I became a follower because I need to come back and see why your blog is named Big Black Dog….only because I had a Big Black Dog named Buster and he was the love of my life…

  • The Tablescaper August 27, 2009 at 1:55 am

    Man, you have roosters in all sizes and shapes. Very fun and colorful.

    Sue, If you click on the “About Me” in my blog navigation bar right under the header picture, it explains why my blog is named Big Black Dog.

  • Christi @ A Southern Life August 27, 2009 at 2:27 am

    Love all your roosters, but, I’ll have to say, that twine cutter is the absolute best thing I’ve seen in a while. Fantastic!

  • Sharlotte August 27, 2009 at 2:30 am

  • susan August 27, 2009 at 2:37 am

    Love that rooster roaster (say that 3 times really fast :)! I bet you miss the Goody Barn. Thanks for visiting and you are right. My husband refers to the living room as the “wasted space” :)

  • KBeau August 27, 2009 at 2:54 am

    Very colorful table, and thanks for sharing your roosters. I do love roosters.

  • Lori E August 27, 2009 at 3:22 am

    Dr. Zhivago? You must be kidding me? How did that song come to be added to a wicker chicken? That is too funny.
    You have set a colorful table scape that any multicolored rooster would be proud to sit on. Dr. Zhivago or not.

  • Ria Mathew August 27, 2009 at 3:24 am

    Oh my goodness! Look at all those fab stuff that you have! If I ever get to be invisible, then you should know I stole that white rooster dish of yours πŸ˜‰

  • Dixie August 27, 2009 at 3:42 am

  • Cass @ That Old House August 29, 2009 at 2:11 pm

    what a bright and happy table! Love it — but I have to say that metal rooster who occasionally wanders out onto your porch stole my heart. I love him. He should be living here, I think. :-)

    I just signed on as one of your many Followers! Glad I found you. (And more pics of Metal Rooster Guy please.)

  • California Girl August 29, 2009 at 2:23 pm

    The roosters and chicks are great fun. Wish I had read the entry date in time. I have a new touch phone with fantastic camera and can now take photos and plug in to my computer instead of hoping my photographer husband will take one for me. I have a matched pair of blue roosters circa 1950. They were my mothers’. They are from China. I remember them from my childhood and I’ve never seen anything like them before or since. Ah well…next Rooster Party.

  • juls4real August 29, 2009 at 9:35 pm

    You have many pretty roosters. I like the fire place rooster because he has such flare.

    Thanks,
    Juls

  • Yellow Rose Arbor August 29, 2009 at 10:46 pm
