Big Black Dog: A Tablescape for a Rooster Party Parade

August 26, 2009

A Tablescape for a Rooster Party Parade







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!


DSCF8590




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


DSCF8562




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


DSCF8572




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!


DSCF8561




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


DSCF8580




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.


DSCF8596




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.

Tablescape Thursday is graciously hosted by Susan of Between Naps on the Porch. Please visit Susan's site and see the wonderful tablescapes set out especially for you!

And the Rooster Party was the fabulous idea of Barb of Bella Vista. If you'd like to see more roosters on parade, click on over and have some fun.

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...

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.

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.
