Hi Laurie,
Love all your roosters. That red rooster tablecloth is fabulous. Your post is too cute (and funny). I guess it's time for me to round up my roosters too for the party. I have too many to photograph--I'm sure you do too! What is it about roosters that we love!?

Nana's Fun Stuff said...

Laurie ~ this was ssssoooo cute!!! I love all your roosters :) I have them in my kitchen too. Thanks for sharing this. It made me smile a lot!

Entertaining Women said...

My kind of family....I don't get up for ANYTHING that takes place at sunrise. Your tablescape is wonderfully whimsical. Thank you for sharing your charming design. Cherry Kay

Sue said...

Laurie, You certainly kept me entertained as I read your post! I love that soup tureen- it is absolutely beautiful. And the pitcher holding the sunflowers is so cut. I love how you have it elevated on top of the upturned compote dish. Everything just looks terrific all put together and I truly enjoyed going back and forth to look at everything.
Do we both have the same rooster statue on the pedestal? :-) Mine came from the Flower Factory this year.
Always enjoy my visit here, my friend. And I always appreciate all the nice things you have to say when you stop by to visit me.

Sharing with Sherri said...

Hi Laurie, Super cute post! Love all your darling lil roosters especially the one that hates to get his lid flipped:) Oooo I want some strawberry soup! does it come with ice cream?!

Thanks for stopping bye to say hello, I know I haven't been around much lately but things are going okay...
You know, like you said sometimes life can just get in the way when you rather be having fun blogging...

Take care, and have fun!
Hugs, Sherri:)

susan said...

Laurie-I think I am getting up as you are going to bed :) As usual, you put the "Laurie" into it! I love your table--especially the pitcher and the napkin rings. The top of the tureen does look the chicken has been cut in half! Try to stay cool---whewwww!

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Really cute Laurie! I'm lovin' those juice glasses! Also the napkin rings, but my favorite is the plate with the saying, that's just too cute-enjoy!

Sailing Simply said...

Oh now that is sooo cute! I loved your post almost as much as all your magnificent roosters. Beautiful collection!

What a cute rooster post. Brunch is good as I am not a early morning food person. Drinking coffee now, trying to get awake - repairman due in a bit.
Another hot day!

Robin@DecoratingTennisGirl said...

Cute and funny post!!! The table is beautiful!!!

Sarah said...

Laurie, I chuckled all the way through this one. You did a clever job of putting this together. Of course seeing all the different roosters who live in your home was totally delight for me! You have some great pieces. Love the tureens, the cute little plate about the Little Red Rooster and the Little Red Hen, and clever idea for a pedestal. I'm going to remember that one! ~ Sarah

Debbie Moore at Slice of Pie Entertaining and Cookbooks said...

Shelia said...

Hi Laurie! I knew I could count on you to have the most wonderful Roosters and you didn't let me down! I love everyone of them. Even the one that gets topless! :)
Love all of the Rooster conversations too!
Be a sweetie,

Your post is so funny, Laurie! You are just too clever. I love your roosters especially the one who is mad cause you keep lifting his upper body, lol. Your table is very pretty and I really enjoyed reading the lines....Christine

DogsMom said...

My family is so over roosters and hens since I have been dragging them out to photograph. More than half never even got posted as I gave up before I got to the tablescape.
After seeing your post, I am finding their charm again.

Hi Laurie!
I've had a cooking injury which has made it hard for me to type but I want you to know that I have enjoyed scrolling through your rooster post. I'm very visual and appreciate every unique rooster I'm seeing as I hop from blog to blog! Forgive me for not being able to be more personal. Cock a doodle do!

Cathy~Mille Fleur said...

Wow Laurie! What a wonderful collection! I love the table...you always have the best tablesettings!

I am wishing now I had posted more pics! I tried to keep it small but I am afraid it is toooooo small! Oh well!

As always I had a blast checking out your lovelies!

Enjoy!

Chari at Happy To Design said...

Hi sweet friend...

Ohhh...what a fabulous showcase of roosters, my friend! I loved each and every one of them! Laurie, your rooster-scape is sooo pretty...so fun and festive! Now, I'm trying to place those pretty red and gold quilted roosters...are they placemats? Love those!!! Love your Quimper pitcher too! Hmmm...I have to admit that I've never tried strawberry soup...but I do believe I'd give it a try...especially since the grand ol' fellow is willing to give up half of himself! Hehe! Loved all of your cute quips, my friend! You always make my heart smile!!! Thank you for sharing your beautiful table and all of your roosters with us today for the party...such a treat!!!

Love ya,
Chari

So many cute Roosters and I love your table setting!!

Vicci @theplaidbasket said...

What an entertaining post...LOVE IT and all your roosters as well! I am SOOO glad that our neighbors with chickens DON'T have a rooster to wake us at the crack of dawn...brunch time might be ok. Have you ever listened to chickens while laying eggs? OH my! Thanks for the great post. Vicci

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Laurie, what a cute and whimsical post. Love all your roosters and you reminded me that I have a tassel that I didn't include. You and I have the same pasta bowl. Mine was a gift from my mom. Everyone used to always give me rooster things.

It's gorgeous...is it old? Anyway...thank you again, sweet friend!!!

Love ya,
Chari

I just love the way you photo edited your rooster photos to make the speech bubbles. I would prefer to eat my morning meal more at brunch, but I still love roosters and hens! Thanks for the very beautiful photography. I enjoyed my visit.

This was fun ~ how do you deal with the rooster and chickens talking about you like that?
Your collection is divine! You would love a store we have here in the Ozarks ~ you could get some more for your collection, but then you would never get any sleep!
Have a blessed FAV Thgs. Sat. I'll be posting tomorrow. <3 Katie

I love your post, Laurie...and all your rooster dishes. Can't have roosters without sunflowers, they go so nicely together.

I LOVE the parties, and hate to miss, but one lone pillow...hmmmm...don't think it will make the cut! I love all of yours! The colors are wonderful and so fun and fresh! thanks for sharing this beautiful display! three pixie lane

Relyn said...

Hi. Laurie. Personally, I'm a brunch girl and my chickens rarely talk to me.

It's rooster day today! I had just read another blog featuring roosters and hens on her yard.

Interesting coincidence? I should get a rooster. LOL

Your roosters are something to crow about! Love the rooster pitcher with the sunflowers, it's so pretty!

Happy I found your blog~

Pat transplanted to MN said...

what a great collection of poultry! The topless one made me laugh out loud. Very entertaining...Your collections outdo mine in this area; I think I have only 5-6 rooster/hens. They just were not my thing, but yours are funny and they are popular now too.

Stephanie ~ Angelic Accents said...

Hi Laurie! Such a wonderful and varied collection of roosters you have! Love the cute captions, too! I'm so glad I stopped by here tonight!

Big TX hugs,
