Country Cluckers

It's time for another Tablescape Thursday with Susan at Between Naps on the Porch. Where does the week go! Today I'm featuring a few things from my booth and a few things from my house that I thought would pull together well for a country theme tablescape.
Here's a long shot with our ol' yellow lab Thunder observing the setup. He matches well with the red and yellow theme of the table!

I used yellow dinner plates with a cotton red and yellow paisley place mat underneath.

I love these rooster napkin rings. They are wood with hand painted touches.

I like the way the red checked napkin pops against the yellow plate.

Here is my rooster salt and peppers that match the cookie jar I set in the center of the table.

This vintage rooster is filled with gerber daisies I saw at Whole Foods yesterday. I had already planned to use the red geraniums, but I couldn't resist the daisies too.

Here's my cookie jar. I like that he's a color combination and not just one or two colors like most roosters.

A birds eye view of the table.

So apparently we do not get to have a beverage with this meal because I forgot the glasses! I was going to use a set of chunky glass tumblers that were my grandma's, but I guess I got too busy snapping pictures and forgot - sorry!

Here we are a dusk.

A long shot from the doorway to the patio.

Remember these petunias from last week? I teased you Monday with a promise that they held a surprise. Well, last Wednesday night I sat out on my porch for an hour after dark waiting for the "surprise" which never happened.

Ta Da! After some technical difficulty I now have the photos to show you the surprise - they light up at dusk. I think they look so pretty.

I hope you enjoyed my country tablescape. Please join Susan to see more great ideas. Thanks for stopping by!
