Summer Morn' Tablescape

The dishes are called Summer Morn’ by Taylorstone I paid $5 at a Flea market for the whole set that serves 6. I bought them because I thought the Rooster Theme would be a nice tablescape. My style is not usually Roosters but the dishes did catch my eye so I had to have them. I used the dishes and no other rooster accessories since I didn’t have any. I like that they are green & white because I can use them in the summer and then later to play up a fall theme. This tablescape I tried to play up the Summer Morn’ Theme by using lots of flowers and doing an early morning breakfast. I am serving Spiced Applesauce Bread using Zucchini Apple Sauce w/Green Grapes and Sunny Orange Delight for the drink.

I am using my green depression glasses. The candle centerpiece I got yesterday at a thrift store to use for this tablescape I paid $4 for it and $2 for the candles at the Dollar Tree. The wood rounds I got at a pioneer fieldtrip my family went to a couple years ago. We used a large 2 person saw, one round my son Brandon and I cut and the other my daughter Nastasja & son Shawn cut. The bottle is a recycled Starbucks coffee drink that I spray painted the lid a hammered metal color and then added green food coloring, water and oil. I like how it catches the sun. The cloth napkins I got about a month or so ago for $1 for 8. The flowers I got for free and the vases also. My husband and I had the same idea yesterday to pick some flowers along the road He was coming home from work and the kids and I from the library and shopping. I couldn't decide which looked best the flowers in the middle or at the ends of the table.
