Sunflowers, Roosters and Iced Tea Party

Welcome to the 22nd Tea Time Tuesday
Join me today for Iced Tea, Roosters, and Sunflowers
Some of my Favorite Things!
I have used a lot of different dishes and items to make this Tablescape mix/match
I love how it turned out.
There is a Party Going On at Barb’s August 6th 
You still have time to join in on the fun!
 My is in this view, it was a church pew, my husband cut down
View facing my sideboard I built from the reclaimed wood from my walls,( I now have sheet rock) and  the sideboard with my favorite Gentleman’s Blue milk paint, and stained the top and the shelf underneath, which has boxes of dishes stored.
The print on the left side is a French Bistro from Hobby Lobby
The wine chalk board on the right is from a garage sale
Centerpiece: Sunflowers, Lanterns, Metal Rooster,
 and Susan’s famous Target salt and pepper shaker white birds
Notice my  Flatware here
Through the door way is a little side porch, I am making a little sun room.
Close up of Centerpiece
View of Table facing my China Closet
The chairs are odd and end chairs from yard sales, I got my Mother’s Table without any chairs. I now have a lot going on different in my dining room. A set of six wooden chair all alike, but I not ready to give up my bench just yet. My grandchildren love to sit on it. Hope to show you soon the changes going on in my dining room of my 100 year old Craftsman’s Bungalow.

Sunflowers from Hobby Lobby, the metal rooster begging to be in a close up
My flatware is Renaissance Reproduction Pattern from Walmart
Close up of the sideboard centerpiece, I love my bee food cover found at a thrift store, 
wish I had a few more!
I just love the light from the lanterns!
My Red Toile Rooster Tablecloth bought at a yard sale
Buffet Centerpiece:
Chef holding a wooden sunflower I cut from wood and painted years ago
Sideboard Centerpiece:
Lanterns, bowls, metal black rooster, Chef Rooster to count the daily lay of our hens, 
with a sign I painted years ago.
View of the table, with my buffet I used an iron bottom with a wooden top which has drawers, I then added blue shelves from my old island, turned them upside down and added shelves for dishes.Underneath sets a bench I made from the reclaimed wood from our walls.
This piece I am thinking of taking out, replacing it with a huge buffet with doors on the bottom with lots of storage room, and shelves on the top for dishes. 
I then could clean off the sideboard bottom and the bench underneath.
What do you think? Do I need to replace it?
The lanterns have different colored glass panels, 
which give off a different shade of light from each sides
I just love using the lanterns with my black round woven place mats. Notice my blue bird
Notice I used different birds and sunflowers at each place setting
I need to collect some small Roosters, but I do love my Birds
Notice the water glass and Iced Tea Glass is Early American Prescut Crystal 
I have a set of twelve of the Iced Tea Glasses, these glasses are a Rare Find
In this view you can see my China Cabinet, which I have to replace the glass, 
I added too many dishes and some of the glass shelves got broken. 
Notice my lamps are also Early American Prescut Crystal
View of table facing family room, the chargers used are red with rooster chargers used on each end. 
I didn’t have enough rooster chargers so I mixed matched to get this 8 place setting
My Sunflower plates, from TJMax last year
Did I say I just adore Sunflowers and Roosters!
Place Setting with a brown bird, rooster charger, and black place mat. 
This hutch is a chest, with a shelf I built, then I did a crackled finish on it.
I use this as a beverage center
Beverage Center:
Aluminium Ice bucket, Early American Prescut Crystal Tea Pitcher
Sunflowers in an Early American Prescut Crystal Vase
Wire Rooster always holds soft peppermint
A white Teapot, just in case I want a cup of Hot Tea!
Notice the star on the Early American Prescut Crystal Pitcher
I hope you enjoyed my Party today, as much as I did making this Tablescape!

  1. I’m a big fan of sunflowers and love how you have combined them with the rooster theme. The large black lanterns are gorgeous and really go well with the yellow and red. The square plates are fabulous! Almost makes me ready for fall – but not quite!


  2. Such a charming Summery welcome!! The colors and all the special touches—the little birds and those gorgeous lanterns!!

    And so much of that furniture the work of your own hands—it’s just wonderful.

    This is just the loveliest setting—it must have taken you a lot of work to get this all imagined and then arranged. Whoever are your guests at this lovely table are very lucky people.

  3. Wonderful tablescape, Katherine. Love the sunflowers theme and roosters. I especially like your white hutch with the white dishware in it. You did a lovely job of it! Have a beautiful day.

Your table setting is gorgeous…as most things you do are! You have such an eye for loveliness! Your Tea Time meme makes me wish I really enjoyed drinking tea! So glad it is a success and I know you really enjoy it!!

    Hope you have a blessed week, Katherine. You’ve been close at heart!
    Big Hugs,
