I have seen some of the most fun and gorgeous tablescapes on TABLESCAPE Thursday hosted by Between Naps on the Front Porch...and I finally had a creative early moment so I decided to at join this week. This will be my first, I hope of many fun Tablescape Thursdays!

This table is in my *eat in* kitchen area. I decorate in a *loose* French/English Country Style and have touches of Roosters everywhere. I also LOVE to mix and match my collections of plates and found goodies. So that is what I have done. My decor in this room is mainly reds, golds and colbalt blues.

My dear friend Ele made these adorable Salad Spoon/Fork set..I absolutely LOVE them and had to display them! This sponge wear bowl was a garage sale find many years ago.
Because I LOVE roses so much, I keep a large supply of beautiful napkins to use and adorn my tables.

I also found these fun Rooster plate at a garage sale, I think I got 4 for $2. I have then paired it with my Mikasa Plates and a royal blue bow...and then my glasses are thrift stores finds at .80 cents each.
I found this darling rooster salt/pepper shakers at a now close shop that I loved...the sponge wear butter dish was a find, but if my memory is correct, I paid full price for it..but I could'nt pass it up.

The rooster table cloth was actually snagged at Wall Mart on sale...I HAD to have it cause it matched my overall room.
Oh and I must point out that gorgeous pitcher. A few months back I hosted a group of gals from my Tuesday Morning Bible study. One of the gals brought juice in this and then told me to keep as her hostess gift to me. Lucky me!!!

I actually LOVE to keep my formal dining rooms table set. And do so usually seasonally, until I have guests and then like it is now, it needs that might just be my inspiration to do this next week in there.

Thanks for letting me share my *Eat-in Kitchen* table.

Have a blessed day! Lorena

It all looks so warm, cozy, and comfortable! Is there anything more romantic that roses?

I really am in love with that salad set! Your friend is very generous to make those for you! WOW! And the chicken plate is darling! I like roses, too, but I sure don't do well with them in this heat. Knockouts are about the simplest for me to grow, and we've had some issues with them. Sigh. Yours are SO pretty on your table!

Happy Tablescape Thursday...
