A Country Table

I'm continuing on with Chicken Decorating from my previous post HERE.
I've just added two simple place settings.
Big blue checked napkins and my Franciscan 
English ironstone dishes
in the Denmark pattern.
The chicken-in-a-basket  S&P's
The star at the table is this pretty orchid
that I picked up this week from a roadside vendor.
It has beautiful blooms that should last
 a very long time.
Then it goes outside to join the others.



  1. I love your table, I love your chicken decorating, and I love your blog! So nice to find you. xo Helena

  2. Oh, and I forget I love your playlist too! How nice to hear Theme From a Summer Place… :-)

  3. Still loving the picket centerpiece.. And your blue and white dishes.. everything turned out so pretty.

  4. The pickets have been a real winner. They work with so many things! The blue of the Denmark with the glorious pink orchid is so special. I love it! Thank you for sharing your wonderful design. Cherry Kay

  5. If it's blue and white, I love it!

  6. Your blue and white stole my heart. Love the stemware... hugs ~lynne~

  7. I love how you used rosemary for a centerpiece. The chicks s & p are so cute. Love the blue and white also.....Christine

  8. Cute and pretty table. Lov the s&p chickies!

  9. Oh yeah love the blues,this is so charming.
    And your playlist too.

  10. Rita, that blue is divine. I scrolled down to browse through your other chick post. Love the colors, LOVE the picket base for the centerpiece and love the orchid. Do you have any luck with them after they're done blooming? I could never get mine to bloom again.

    My eye keeps focusing in on your table and chairs though. I have to get a new one for our kitchen and I'm thinking round glass top so that it looks more roomy but I want comfortable chairs with arms. Wonder if you have another post with your table. Gonna go browse your page now. ;)

  11. Beautiful table, Rita! I love blue and white, and that color of orchid really stands out!!!

  12. Very nicely done.

    The centrepice its great as its rosemary.

    Thank you for sharing
