Orange Rooster

This week I decided to use my favorite rooster dishes, the pattern is Orange Rooster. I bought them at TJMaxx several years ago (on sale for $2 each), but could only find 3 dinner plates. I finally found the 4th on e-Bay not long ago for $6.

I chose a green tablecloth and rattan chargers. The table is quite colorful with yellows, greens and lots of orange.




The soup bowl is perfect for a large green salad.

I debated on using green stemware, but in the end I had to use the orange stemware, of course. It is Noritake Perspective. They were found at small antique mall in Topeka last year.


The yellow and orange napkins are from World Market and I have had them for quite awhile. I bought them in all the colors they had...blue, green, red, black, orange and these yellow ones. They probably get used more than any other ones I own! The flatware is Oneida's Afterglow sterling.


The very simple place setting, just a dinner plate and bowl for salad.
 




The centerpiece consists of the few flowers that have survived from Mother's Day and a rooster pitcher. I tried to keep everything simple due to the busy pattern and colors of the dishes!




Thanks for visiting this week, hope you will come back next time.

I will be joining a few parties this week and hope you will join me:

Let's Dish at Cuisine Kathleen
Wednesdays Bunny Hop Party at Bunny Jeans Decor
Centerpiece Wednesday at The Style Sisters
Thrifty Things Friday at The Thrifty Groove
Seasonal Sunday at The Tablescaper
Thank you ladies for hosting each week!

So cute. I love how colorful this turned out. That stemware is great. I often find myself looking on Ebay on my phone when trying to decide if I want to buy dishes. Dianne

Yup...I would've gone with the orange stems, too! They look great with that dish pattern!!! I have searched the world over for the right orange stemware, and it seems YOU found it!!!! I saw some at Home Goods last weekend, but it was plastic. I'm looking for glass. The search continues....!!!

Marigene,
I'd say this tablescape is definitely something to crow about, dear friend! Those are such warm and inviting colors! Hm~m~m...a salad sounds fabulous this time of year! Chicken salad...perhaps? That green in your flowers is my favorite shade of green e v e r!
Fondly,
Pat

Hi Marigene!

LOVE the orange stemware. I thought they might be plastic as I have never seen orange before, just gold. What a great find!

Thanks for sharing this at the Bunny Hop Party!

Beautiful table, and so glad you found the plate on Ebay. They are the nicest rooster dishes I have seen. The orange stemware is gorgeous! My son called me from World Market in Florida since he knows we don't have one here, and asked me if I wanted anything. OMG, I told him one of everything!

Entertaining Women said...

I so seldom use orange, but when I do it always so effective....a really powerful color. The goblets are a treasure...hard to find. Your rooster dishes are such fun...I'm so glad that you found the fourth one! Thanks for inviting us for a peak. Cherry Kay

You know color is my middle name, so you know I love this! Those goblets really set off the orange in the bowls.

Barbara said...

So bright and cheery! You have the perfect stemware to go with those plates. I just love the colors. I think I will get braver about buying off numbers of things with the thought that I may be able to pick up an extra or two on eBay. Thanks for the idea! Have a wonderful weekend!

I thought you got rid of all your rooster things? Or maybe just the excess?
Very pretty, love the napkins and glassware!
Thanks for linking up your lovely creation to Let's Dish! :)

Robin said...

I don't think I've ever seen orange glassware like this. Looks great with your roosters to make for a very cheerful, colorful table. Isn't great when your flowers last that long?

I want to thank you for visiting my blog. I appreciate it. More importantly I want to tell you how much I loved your table. Roosters and chickens are just about my favorite. My kitchen decor is all rooster. I love your dishes. I've seen them and wanted them, but it wasn't meant to be! I love the orange stems, simply gorgeous. Really a great table.
