Green Polka Dotted Roosters And Cabbage


While cleaning out the linen armoire I came across this cute vintage square with embroidery and appliqued green polka dotted roosters on each corner. I am not sure where this one came from...possibly the local ARC Thrift Store, but I can't say for sure. Anyhoo...that was the inspiration for my table this week.


I am sure some of you are groaning when you see more green...just can't help myself, sorry. I added a napkin with smaller polka dots than what are on the roosters. I quartered it vertically and placed it between the salad plate and the underplate for the soup cup.


The stack starts with black woven chargers, then layers of green and white Bordallo Pineiro cabbage leaf plates and finally a cute little soup cup that looks like a mini head of cauliflower.


I, once again, pulled out my green handled Oxford Hall Fashion Wear flatware. It is the perfect shade to pair with the BP cabbage plates.


The Ivima 1895 Hobnail stemware is my go to when I use green dishes. They are such a gorgeous unsaturated shade of green.


The centerpiece for my luncheon table is a tureen in the shape of a cauliflower, which will hold, you guessed it...cheesy cauliflower soup!





Thanks for taking the time to visit today...hope you will return next time.

I will join fun parties at

Well don't you just love that rooster table cloth!!!! I think the green is the perfect color for winter - it cheers things up so well. I love all the cabbage and cauliflower dishes. Each time I say that a table is my favorite I find that the next one you show takes its place - I love this table!!!!

I never get tired of your green, Marigene! The vintage topper is so cheery and perfect for your table with the polka dot napkins and those wonderful hobnail goblets. The soup tureen is the best centerpiece to compliment your adorable soup cups. Now I'm wanting to make some cheesy cauliflower soup!

I LOVE this table Marigene! You're right - that color green is so wonderfully saturated, I would tire of it. What a way to brighten up January.

Your layered dishes are gorgeous! And your cauliflower soup cups and tureen are just perfect for this winter table! The tablecloth is the perfect inspiration piece. I have several tables this size (card table sized for those card parties of the 1950's, at least at my gramma's house). I never thought of centering it on the table. It looks beautiful and really shows off the detail!

Hi Marigene, Love the little linen cloth, and that it is square. Roo love here, great find. I think it really shows off the table setting. Great tureen and I’m sure the soup will taste so good with all this cold and dreary weather!

Oh, Marigene, I LOVE this table. It really couldn't be prettier! Green is my favorite color, so I'm probably partial, but your choices are outstanding: the darling rooster tablecloth, the dish stack is to die for, your polka dot napkins, your centerpiece and flatware----everything! Bravo!! Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

Cathy at Wives with Knives said...

What a fun table, Marigene. Your embroidered linen is perfect with the cabbage plates...one of my favorite patterns. Green and white reminds me of spring (which seems very far away at the moment).

Linda @ Life and Linda said...

Beautiful greens Marigene. The roosters are so fun. Gotta love those hobnail goblets. I could use some of that tasty soup right about now.

Candy S said...

You already know how much I adore the green hobnail glasses, but I will tell you again. I love your green hobnail glasses!!! The rooster table cover is totally adorable and perfect for this table. I love it!!!
