Spring Chicken Tablescape and some recipe ideas

I promised a chicken inspired tablescape using the neat chicken planter I got in Myrtle Beach, and here it is!  I did seriously look for some chicken plates, LOL, but not to be.  Still, the spring green placemats look good with the green on the planter.

I do have some chicken napkin rings, so they came out for the spring green napkins.

The magnolia plates were a thrift store score. With the red and green and the pine cone, they could probably be used on a holiday table, but I think of spring with the lovely magnolia blooms in the middle.

Magnolia salad plates are stacked on white dinner plates. A magnolia saucer serves as a bread plate.

For the centerpiece, I placed a schefflera in the middle of my thrift store, giant cup, chicken planter. The plant was a gift from a friend, and I just set it inside the planter without loading it up with dirt and actually planting it. This way I can use it on the table without worrying about needing a saucer underneath. The plant is inside another planter that doesn’t have any holes in the bottom, so no worries about water leaking on the wood table. This side has a white chicken painted on the side. My grandmother’s white chickens are placed on one side.

These were also my grandmother’s, a chicken salt and pepper set.

I’ve had these little tiny chickens for many years. I think I originally ordered them from a catalog.  The back side of the planter has a painted brown chicken.

Very simple, this table is relaxed and easy, yet fun for everyday use.

Outside the window is lush spring green too.

Are you lucky enough to remember your grandmother’s cooking? I did a post on National Fried Chicken Day in 2015 as an homage to my grandmother and her wonderful, not to be duplicated fried chicken.
