A Rooster Brunch

My friend Debjani and I wanted to do something together. But it was cold outside so I suggested for her to just come over and we can make jewelry and then do karaoke afterwards. I told her I will prepare brunch.

And so did I! I made a veggie egg casserole, Belgian waffles and served some cheese buns and hard boiled eggs.

I would like to link with Leigh for Thrifty Thursday at

Susan for Tablescape Thursday at

Michael aka Gollum, for Foodie Friday at

and Linda for Junkin Finds at

Be sure you visit these lovely and creative ladies for some inspiration and wonderful table ideas.

I already had the rooster tablecloth on the table so I just decided to add my rooster plates and accessories. See the cabinet on the wal? I bought it from Nancy (Nancy's Dish) and I love it but I did not get done filling it with dishes. I wanted to install lights in it but the lights that I like have to be ordered.

We bought the candle holder from Cozumel, Mexico.
Teapot set is by Fitz and Floyd. Love the bird finials. I am still looking for a creamer to complete the set so if anyone finds one, please let me know. I bought whatever I found available at TJ Maxx but they had no creamer.

The waffles were so good. I used Krusteaz mix which I brought from Florida because I cannot find it anywhere here. I think it is the best mix. I have a commercial Kitchen aide waffle maker similar to the ones they use in hotels but mine makes 2 waffles at the same time. I love it! I should have taken a picture but I forgot.

I thought this chicken wire basket should qualify for Thrifty Thursday. I bought it from a consignment shop for $8. It's sturdy and well made.

Do you see the white hen egg holder? The little chick in front of it is a salt shaker. Isn't it cute? This should qualify for thrifty too. I think I bought it for $3.99 from Ross. It holds 5 eggs.

John even surprised us and came home for lunch. He must have smelled the food, lol.

Vanna, do you recognize the sugar shaker? I bought it from the antique shop in Seattle when were shopping. It has a silver top but I cannot remember how much I paid for it. Not much or I would not have bought it.

And yes, we made jewelry afterwards and even got to sing for a short while. I made this pearl bracelet for my sister.

to match this necklace that I made and already sent to her. I thought it would be nice for her to have a matching bracelet too.

Thank you all for your visits and thanks to our gracious hostesses, Susan, Leigh, Michael and Linda.

I think this whole table is great and would love to pick the entire thing up and put it in my kitchen. It's all perfect, from the tablecloth on up.

I really love that teapot and set. Hope you DO find the creamer. I'll keep my eye out while I'm on "the hunt" for more kitchen things.

And I love the candle holder too.

What a beautiful necklace and bracelet. How sweet a gift for your sister. Love your roosters plates too and that casserole looks delicious!


lvroftiques said...

You two have the best time! And how beautiful is that brunch!! Christine you really are the QUEEN of the table! And it's not just a pretty picture either (which it is) it's totally functioning. So many times I see tablescapes that aren't at all realistic for an actual meal kwim? Just a bunch of impressive china stacked up. I DID recognize that shaker! Saw it and loved it right off! I think you paid something like $8? I remember it was a good price. Also I now know what I can send YOU! Got lots of Kursteaz here! *winks* Vanna

I will look at out TJ Maxx and see if we have a rooster creamer for you. I don't recall seeing any last week when I visited.
