Rooster Party

I've been looking forward to this rooster party! Just the words rooster party makes me laugh, it has to be fun! Go here to Barb's Bella Vista for lots more pretty, silly, cute, fun roosters!

Years ago I had a few roosters and hens, but gave them away. I didn't have any roosters for this party, but bought this inexpensive one just for the party! I also bought three inexpensive hens, and four little roosters from Dollar Tree.

I found this colorful rooster at TJ Maxx for only $5.99. This rooster thinks he is hot stuff since he is wearing red hot peppers! I really like the pretty colors, and he is strutting his stuff!

I did a tablescape with this colorful rooster.

A Mexican Fiesta!
I've had this ceramic sombrero chip and dip bowl for many years. I bought a piece of bright striped fabric for the table runner along with bright flowers from Dollar Tree. The two small glasses also came from a dollar store, one dollar each! A very inexpensive tablescape!

Oh, I forgot the cost of the food - the chips were buy one get one free,
and the salsa was free with the chips!

Doesn't he think he is something?
Strut your stuff!!


He is actually a candle holder!


The second set of roosters are from Dollar Tree
For one dollar I think these wooden look resin roosters are pretty cute!

I also made a tablescape with these four roosters.

This is a breakfast tablescape, as you can see with the toast rack holding cinnamon toast.

The centerpiece is fresh fruit on a wire cake plate

The china is my yellow Fiesta.

I think the Fiesta creamer has such a cute shape, looks like their pitcher in miniature.
The flatware was purchased at Walmart about ten years ago.
The plaid napkins are April Cornell, purchased at Marshall's for about five dollars.
The tablecloth is from Home Goods ($12.)

Some of the hens got word about the rooster party and starting clucking indignantly about not being invited. To appease them I made a tablescape for them!

I used red gingham napkins for placemats and
a red and black bandana under the hens centerpiece.

The white plates are from Dollar Tree and the black square plates from Target. This little white creamer is from TJ Maxx (or Ross?) I had the other mini white pitcher. This is a breakfast table and pancakes will be served. The pitchers will have maple syrup in them.

Okay, are you hens happy now?
I bought both of these hens from Marshall's and Hobby Lobby.
I like the small one because she is an odd shape! Her head is down.

I bought this chicken at Ross, mainly because it is so silly looking!
I still haven't decided if it is a hen or rooster! Because
it is sitting I'm saying it's a hen!

I did a table for one tablescape using , a
brown plate placed on top of the yellow Fiesta
on a yellow plaid placemat and
a plaid April Cornell napkin

I forgot I had this little feather rooster ornament, I found it in the cabinet!
It is hanging from the knob on one of the kitchen cabinets.



Which is your favorite rooster and hen?

This one?

Or this one?
Or these?

I think this one is my favorite!
I hope he doesn't wake me up too early with his cock-a-doodle-doo!!

After I had taken all the pictures of this tablescape I realized I had forgotten to use the flowers I bought at Dollar Tree just for this!

I had taken the food away, but did more pictures anyway!

I hope you enjoyed seeing my roosters and hens!

Have a happy day!
God Bless.

Hi again Katherine! What a great variety of Roosters you have! Fun times strutting around the blogosphere...

Katherine, they are all just wonderful. I can't pick a favorite because each of them are so well displayed with beautiful tablescapes, it makes them all seem so important and special. I really love all the tablescapes and the other items you used too. Love it all and such cute roosters. Hugs, Marty

You did very well, finding roosters at these great stores for great prices! I really like your black and red tablescape for the little hens...they deserve a place in the rooster scene, since they are so important to Mr. Rooster! And the chili pepper rooster is something! I love them all!

That is one colorful struttin' rooster. Very festive! The chips and salsa dish is great. I've always liked roosters even though I have very few.

O, and I always start at the BOTTOM of the list of players...:O)

I love all your roosters and I love all your tablescapes! You did a perfect job coordinating each scene! I loved it all!
I think my most favorite is the colorful candle holder, he's so festive looking!
Great job!
All the best,

PS ~ I'm not even going to tell you what my verification word is, but suffice it to say it's not a nice one! What's with blogger? This is the third time this has happened to me!

Personalized Sketches and Sentiments said...

...just getting started...& was at the top of the roster roster...but then thought I'd change it up and get to the bottom of things...

What amazing finds! Your first one is oh so vibrant and multi-talented (you know, being a candle holder too!)
I love your roosters...and your tablescapes! How fun! The scenery just instantly changes from (Mr. Chili) fiery & festive... ((Mr. Faux Wood) calm & cool ...(the 2 Ms. hens) country chic! Love it!

Blessings & Aloha!

I'm towards the bottom of the roost...hope to see you at my party :o)

A Hint of Home said...

I didn't know you had so many roosters. You must have had them in the hen house when I was there.
They all all so cute. The pepper one is so unusal and colorful.
I really like the small ones on the plates. Your tables always look great!

deborah said...

I love the black ones. and the one from ross with the skinny neck is a weird kind of awesome

Marilyn Miller said...

You have some fun, colorful roosters. I like roosters, but no room at the inn here.

Doris Sturm said...

Oh, yes, I enjoyed your roosters and hens very much. What lovely tablescapes. I must say the first, colorful rooster with the chili pepers is my favorite. He's just too cool, bright and colorful and the fact that he's a candle holder is even better (I love using candles)...I think bright colors always remind me of Mexican cuisine and I think he's just perfect.
But, those two hens are runner up sitting on that red bandanna and the table setting is so strong and bold looking. It's my second choice, but I liked them all.
Thank you so much for explaining them so nicely!
Have a great remainder of the party!

Ruby said...

What great tablescapes! I like the little black hens but the hot pepper rooster is fabulous.

Bunny, THE PARIS HOUSE said...

Hi Katherine!
Thank you for visiting my very belated blog post. My roosters were hiding from the summer heat!

I love the black speckled rooster...such an unusual shape. And of course, I love black, white and red. Do you think he would like to come play with my Navajo roosters?

Jane said...

Hi Katherine!
It's Jane again...I forgot to tell you how much I LOVED the black, red and white tablescape. It's beautiful, simple, and well put together. Great job!

The other 'scapes are lovely too!

Bill said...

Hi Katherine,
I think your "peppery" rooster is the hottest one at the party! As always, you did a wonderful job with your tablescape.

I have that same ceramic sombrero, and I always enjoy using it. Yours is perfect for this festive, colorful table!

Bye for now,
Bill

Tracy said...

Hi Katherine! I love your red, black and white rooster-scape, those black roosters look great on the red bandana pattern, but if I have to pick a favorite rooster, I'm picking the silly one, love the long neck!

Great rooster collection, I like the bright colored one but I think my favorite is the little one hanging. The breakfast tablescape is very pretty.

Celestina Marie said...

Hi Katherine, It is hard to pick a favorite. I think I love the first one with the chips and salsa, but I love them all and expecially the way you have showcased them with your table settings.

Also beautiful post above about Princess Di. Hard to believe so many years have gone by already. May she rest in peace.

So nice to meet you and thank you for stopping by. I have really enjoyed my visit to your lovely blog.
Have a great week.
