Rooster Party! Part the Second

Taking a break from prepping for this little gathering tomorrow evening.  Food is prepared, except for the guacamole which I will do tomorrow.

I decided early on that I wanted to add some sort of plants to the rooster.  Yesterday, I spent part of the day in a HUMONGOUS rainstorm splashing through the garden center (and ruining a pair of shoes) searching for just the right things; I had visions of blue daze and some bright yellow/orange flowers dancing in my head.  However, all of those were in huge pots and I needed plants in those little six-pack things.  Periwinkle was as good as I found, which I decided would be better than nothing.  Already having a package of teeny-weeny clay pots, I stuck the periwinkle in those; also added were two small sprigs of creeping jenny.  Those little pots are so cute!!

Caveat:  these are some of the worst pictures I've ever taken, but I was/am in a hurry!  Underneath the rooster I plopped a disposable aluminum tray to hold the plants and provide a 'nest' for everything.

Now, that ugly tray had to be hidden, so out came a package of 'fake' moss; I'll continue to play with it until all the aluminum is hidden.  Oh, look:  there's one of the many grocery bags that are taking up space in the dining room! Charming!!! :)  No time to crop!   More views:

And then, as an almost afterthought (because I forgot that I had them), I pulled out these great colorful linens that I will use somehow...somewhere!

Back to lunch, back to work!  Thanks for keeping up with this fun project!

  1. That red rooster is so handsome and cheerful. And the plants in tiny pots look so lovely.

  2. Thanks, Olga! Hoping they last for a couple of days!\

  3. Well you know I would love this post. LOVE your red roo and how proudly you have him/her displayed. Thanks for sharing with the newbie party...I believe this is for my next one, but I just happened to be bopping around.
