Tablescape Tuesday: Rise ‘n Shine!

“Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love,
    for in you I trust.
Make me know the way I should go,
    for to you I lift up my soul”
Psalm 143:8

 On Monday morning after a week-long vacation, it is so hard to “rise and shine”!    But work was calling and so was Tablescape Tuesday!  I decided to keep it simple – breakfast for two at our kitchen island!  As always, you are invited to join us!

 I softened the granite top with a rooster patterned table square!  A European charcuterie board provided the foundation for the centerpiece!  Water hyacinth placemats added texture!  Paisley napkins match the border on the table square!  The centerpiece consisted of a Fitz and Floyd rooster and hen along with fresh herbs from our garden!  I used thyme, lemon balm, rosemary, basil, and ornamental peppers.  The salt and pepper shakers are vintage! Pineapple orange juice in champagne flutes turns an ordinary breakfast into a festive one!    The rooster plates coordinate perfectly with the table square!  The large rooster and Italian pasta jar are always at home on the kitchen island!   “A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in a setting of silver”
Proverbs‬ ‭25‬:‭11‬

The Details:
Table square/napkins – custom-made many years ago with Waverly fabrics
Charcuterie board – Blackberry Farm
Dinner plate/cup and saucer – American Atelier
“baroque” pattern
Flutes – Tuesday Morning (several years ago)
Water Hyacinth Placemats – Tuesday Morning
Pasta Canister –

    Just lovely! What a welcoming way to start the day. I found your blog about a month ago and have enjoyed looking at all the beautiful spaces you have created!

    • Thanks so much, Shirley! The paisley napkins are quite old now, but I still enjoy pulling them out occasionally. The rooster print was used in my kitchen years ago as well as the paisley. Happy Tuesday!

  2. Jo Ann Barnett says:

    I am in love with your charcuterie board…as well as your roosters.I think every kitchen should have at least one rooster, and of course every rooster should have a hen.

  3. Your kitchen is so pretty, Pam! I love softening the bar with the cloth. I have a friend that covers her entire bar with a cloth that she had made especially for showers and engagement parties. She uses a solid brown and very formal flowers transforming the entire look.
    Your table for two is eye catching and your centerpiece pulls everything together. Love all the colors.
    Hope your week is restful. You have had a busy month. Haven’t had a chance to comment on your island adventure. Beautiful scenery. Glad all turned out well. The weather can change things quickly.

    What a beautiful breakfast display. You have such talent at putting table settings together. I have begun collecting settings for the holidays. Mixing and matching is definitely the most practical way to go. I will definitely check out some stores on your list.

    I commented on your Waterford tour of photos and decided to update and this on Tuesday and am enjoying your rooster plates and lovely linens. This is a really uplifting setting. The FNF rooster is beautiful and Dallas is where the corp started and we always went to their sales.
    Please, come take a peek of my Lemon Zest Tablescape post this week!
    Loved visiting!

    I love, love, love this! Breakfast for two in the kitchen is such a great way to start the week. The yellows really brighten the space up and are sure to send you out the door smiling. Thanks for sharing at Inspiration Thursday!

    Your kitchen is beautiful! Your island breakfast set-up is a wonderful idea. Your roosters and plates are beautiful, and your hen and rooster pair are my favorites. Welcome home! 🙂

  9. Jann Olson says:

    Very beautiful to start your day! I love the long board. Perfect for adding visual interest. I love the idea of picking herbs for décor. I use them in cooking, but don’t think to do that. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

    What a fabulously colorful table with your oranges and reds. My neighbor has a rooster next door, even though you aren’t to have them in the city, and she just loves him, although he is noisy all day, not just in the morning.
    This would make anyone want to rise and shine.

    Hello Pam
    I’m just popping in from Stephanie’s party.
    I adore this table setting, especially as I’m a francophile!
    The toile table cloth and roosters hit the spot with me – I love it all!
