Chickens and Sunflowers Tablescape

This week's table was set just for fun (and, truth be told - to use accent plates that we have had around for a long time.)

I love the flatware - "French Rooster" by Cuisinart from Amazon

Pat's sweet husband cut these placemat "liners" from a roll of chicken wire

I promise that these glasses are squeaky clean. Pat makes me clean and "polish" all the glassware before they go on the table. It's just really overcast today (and currently 58 degrees outside) and hard to get any decent pictures.

From the other end of the table
Where it came from:

  1. That's such a cheerful and bright tablescape. Love it!

  2. Such a cute table with your chicken plates. Beautiful centerpiece which add to the cherry table.

  3. This is so cute! I like the chicken wire lanterns and toppers for the placemats! Chicken wire is not fun to cut so I have to give kudos to her husband for cutting those! The chicken plates are cute and I like the sunflower centerpiece.

  4. Absolutely love this table and the chicken wire placemats. How clever.

  5. Those chicken plates are indeed fun and I love the chicken wire placemats and lantern with them.
