Chicken Feed

My dear friend and co-worker "Sam" introduced me to the Tablescape blog! She has encouraged me and cheered me as I try to figure out this "blogging". And to further inspire me - she gifted me with some adorable chicken and rooster accessories! I immediately dashed to Big Lots for placemats - should I use the Sunflower? I think I like this black and white checked with the chickens
 (both placemats $1.50 each at Big Lots!)

I found a watering can centerpiece complete with sunflowers sitting on my shelf. And added the adorable Chicken and Rooster Salt and Peppers Sam found at the Dollar Tree! (Note to self: Why not plant some sunflower seeds?)  (2nd Note to self: Do you really like the look of the tail end of the chickens?)

I found a second watering can (a favor from niece Laura's wedding) and added the adorable rooster coffee mug that Sam found, also at Dollar Tree!
The gold napkin is from Big Lots (2 for $1) and I tied it with a piece of red raffia. The little paper mache eggs were on sale at Hobby Lobby, 3 for $1.00!
Would you like some breakfast - sunnyside up eggs, sizzling bacon and some toast bites? Don't forget the coffee (always tastes better in a pretty mug!)
 Thanks for visiting! I love looking at all your lovely tablescapes each week. Each one is so unique and inspiring. What a nifty bunch of people! I will be linking to Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch


  1. It does look like you have picked up the tablescaping bug very quickly with delightful results. Thanks for sharing the inspiration with us.

  2. Tablescaping is a little addictive. Such an easy way to decorate. I really like the check placemat and the red plate looks great with it. Nice idea by tying in the watering can also!

  3. I thought it was chicken -- and I guess it is -- it's eggs! Here on the prairie a "chicken feed" is fried chicken!!!

    What a great table and I do love your dishes! And your "chicken feed"

  4. What a cute breakfast setting! Glad you've joined the tablescaping gang! And thanks for commenting on my table!

  5. Oh yum! Do you happen to have an extra plate?

    I hope you'll stop by and see my video for a French Macaroon video. There are bloopers. :)

    I am also hosting a giveaway for a French Basketeer tote.

  6. Looks like a yummy breakfast you've prepared for us! Love those cute, cute placemats. Thanks for your visit.

  10. This table makes for a very good morning for all! So glad you are a new blogger with talent.

  11. This is such an adorable tablescape. I really liked the sunflower placemat you showed. I wonder if I'm coming down with the tablescaping bug too, I'm feeling a real need to run out to Big Lots and hunt up some cute placemats.


Thank you so much for stopping by to visit! I love your comments and suggestions and read them all.
