It’s always difficult, I think, to come up with an attractive table setting after all of the splash and glitter of the tables set during the holiday season. It seems there is just one holiday after another once October hits, and then after Valentine’s Day it’s a bit of a letdown until St. Pat’s and Easter.
This table was inspired by a piece of scrapbook paper that I couldn’t resist during a recent trip to Michael’s. I think I envisioned cutting a chicken silhouette out of the paper and centering it on a complementary piece of cardstock, but then I figured, who’d see it once a plate was set down? So I pulled out my glass squares that I first used here and put the paper beneath them.
Thanks to other bloggers for the brilliant idea of using rugs, throws, matelassés, quilts, and afghans as table coverings, I pulled the afghan off of the couch and placed it diagonally on the table. It didn’t cover completely, but I liked the look and, really, isn’t it just so much fun perplexing men with this sort of thing?
Then I started looking for some chicken theme items and came up with this. It’s quite cozy on dreary winter days.
