First Day of Summer Brunch...

I'm linking this to Tablescape Thursday at Susan's Between Naps on the Porch. Check out all the other amazing tablescapes!

This tablescape greeted our "boys" for the first day of summer. I called it brunch, but actually we had to postpone it until Monday night. Work and duties before pleasure? Who made that rule? We ordered the rooster from Valerie Par Hill. Isn't he proud? And the dishes are a gift from a dear friend of mine. I found that awesome summer plaid tablecloth on Amazon



Our menu was Summer Sun Casserole (also known as Tater Tot Casserole made with smaller hashround discs.) We had a huge garden salad, wholewheat biscuits, and Backyard Brown Sugar Baked Beans... Mom is famous for her baked beans, which also, due to the amount of brown sugar she puts in, served as dessert!!! haha..
.
The boys were "game," but Mom insisted the old bird fly to the nearby corner during the meal. She must have been afraid he'd eat her salad!

This table looks great and colorful! It reminds me of my aunt who has both your dish pattern, and that exact same rooster. I love how you've paired it up with that great plaid tablecloth. Thanks for sharing and happy TT to you!

The red and yellow is so cheerful together. Very summery!

Bill said...

Great colors and very whimsical! ;)

I particularly like the third photo -- the narrow vertical one. Mr. Rooster's looking especially tall and proud in that one!

The rooster is really awesom and pretty. You catched its colors very well with the tablecloth, dishes and stemware. Pretty table.
Greetings, Johanna
