Welcome to Tablescape Thursday

Good morning, dear friends, and welcome back to Tablescape Thursday! I am so happy to be tablescaping again. Outdoors there is plenty of sunshine, and the birds are happily singing. It is the perfect day to enjoy lunch outdoors.

The theme for today’s setting is all about roosters. It is no secret that I love to collect roosters. With their beautiful colors and farmhouse charm,  they are the perfect thing for French Country decorating. I picked a couple of my favorites to grace the table.

For the centerpiece, I stood one rooster upon a French box and placed the other one at the base of the box.

A French tablecloth with embroidered roosters and flowers make the perfect underpinning.



For the placesettings, I used green straw placemats, white Mikasa English Countryside plates, and salad plates from the Pioneer Woman collection. The glassware is American Fostoria. Bright yellow napkins with red flower napkin rings round out each setting.


Thank you so much for joining me today! I hope that you have a very happy and blessed day. Enjoy your weekend, sweet friends!!!

  5. Shannon, the alfresco setting is gorgeous! Would you mind sharing where you found the amazing tablecloth? The checked cushions and the roosters just say French Country. I believe Mr. Faudree would have been delighted to sit at your table! It is just perfect!

    • Pam, you are so sweet! The tablecloth came from an online shop called La Cigale. They carry only French table linens. I have bought several tablecloths, placemats, and napkins from them, and I have always been pleased with the quality. I hope this helps. Enjoy your day!!!

  6. This is so delightful Shannon! Roosters and Chicken always make me smile and the way you styled the yellow napkins with the big bright red flowers is perfect! What a beautiful setting in your garden! Love the chair cushions too!

  7. This is so dreamy and full of inspiration.
    From the main rooster perched up high,
    to the colorful tablecloth. I really could see
    having brunch in your garden.
    Can I ask where you found the table cloth?
    I have searched online and nothing comes close to yours.
