A French Rooster Table

Sometimes I get questions about how many dishes I have. Now I am very blessed to have a large variety of beautiful dishes. But you can make a beautiful table with your everyday dishes. 

Start with this beautiful April Cornell Tablecloth, it gives the impression of a French Country breakfast.

Add my everyday Mikasa French Country dishes

I included an accent plate with roosters on it…. 

And a cute rooster dish. I am going to pipe butter into it.


Add a simple pitcher with sunflowers 

And these very cute pewter farm animal napkin rings..

Water glasses 

Ivory flatware

My favorite ivory lace napkins under the black April Cornell napkins.


I pulled roosters from around the house. 

The table looks special with the everyday items.

I am joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch. She always has the prettiest tables and you will be inspired by the party!!

  1. I love your table. I am always on the lookout for new dishes to add to the foundation of white ones. When I find something pretty at Goodwill, the salad/dessert plates jump into my cart. They certainly add color and interest to my tables. Your roosters are the best!

  10. Pretty French Breakfast Tablescape!
    The roosters are the best accents for breakfast. I love your lovely rooster linens with the dark colors for they pop your white plates. This is something to crow about for you can really create a lovely table with everyday china!

    Thanks, Pam

  11. What a cute, cute post/table!! I love that you added the white napkin to the dark one--it really sets it off and adds another dimension. Love those little rooster covered dishes! ~Zuni
