Tablescape Thursday - Hubbies birtthday table.



Hiddy Ho Sweet Folks,
and
How are you this fine day?
Hope all is well with you and yours!!

Got another good nights sleep, so that makes
me a happy girl.  We worked outside last night,
such a great evening for it too.  I mowed on the
john deere while hubby did the weed eating and
edging,  we get done pretty quick when we do
that.   Raked up a jillion sycamore balls, they
were all over the front yard,  still have a few 
areas to do.  Maybe this evening!!

Well, thought it time for a fun day,  so thought
I would share hubbies birthday table with you.
I have to say I have a much harder time coming
 up with masculine tablecapes.  So was looking
around and thought,  well,  a Rooster is of the
masculine persuasion, so why not give it a try.


This will be my last table with any red at least
until Memorial day!!  lol
Thought the brown and rusty red were great
tho, for a masculine table,  plus our home is
still dressed in red,  but that is changing very
soon.  Thank Goodness,  I have to say the
red is starting to get to me now!!  lol 



Sorry this is a lil bit blurry. There are better pics coming,
Made some napkin rings in printmaster with Roosters on them, 
and tied them on with raffia.


Same pic with a posterized affect!



Had to find a way to tie this Rooster in,
What else???  A Happy Birthday Rooster!!


and of course, candles.....
had the perfect color of blue ones leftover
from Dee's beach themed table.


This is the other side of " Beaurequard.,
my fav pet Rooster!



Being used as the Centerpiece has really given
him a BIG head!!  lol




Got this cute Rooster picture from Sonny
over at 155 dream lane.  If you have never
visited her click here for a visit. 


This is another head shot of Beaureguard,
but from his other side,  and I put a
cut out photoshop affect on him.


Did you notice I mixed the silverware for a lil
change of pace!






Same pic as above only larger and with a filmgrain
photoshop affect!!


like using the candle cups as 
candleholders which sort of seem
to go with the whole Rooster theme!
Have to say I really enjoy doing themed
anything!!  lol



I have really loved using these lil salt and pepper
shaker in at least 4 places on the table cause 
it really cuts down on a lot of passing of things,
so thing it makes our dining experience more
pleasant.  Got them at Homegoods for about
$5.00 for 5 sets I think it was.
A great investment!!


Here is Beaureguard again thinking He is the
star of the show When really it is......


This great guy!!
Here he is with his old hen!!  lol
(Can you tell this was taken at christmas time???)
Hence the cute lil snowman in the background.



and here was the card I made him!!
I was looking for a different font to use
and happened to come across one called
"Beaureguard" !
I thought that quite funny!!  lol


Thanks for stopping in to our Hen House!!


I'm linking up to Susan over at between
naps on the porch.  If you want to view

Love, Blessings and Rooster Hugs,

I just loved the Rooster theme! I especially liked the rooster picture on your napkin ties! I have a surprise for your birthday that has to do with a "bird" of this feather!
I love you all very much!
