I'd like to introduce you to this year's cloth, a California Hand Prints rooster on yellow.
What's not to love about this fabulous fellow? He's a wonderful 50's farm graphic, and it's so nice to find this cloth with the yellow background rather than the white.
I think he crows with happiness at the placesettings and serving pieces in HLCCA Retro Red Stripe Fiesta!
I used this both this cloth and these Bakelite rooster napkin rings for the first time when my mother visited earlier this month. The tablescape was just perfect for a hearty breakfast.
A Hall syrup pitcher and salt and pepper shakers work well with the red stripe. Some folks say the syrup is a little rooster-esque with that "deco comb" on the lid.
I also used Mexican glass water tumblers and Bakelite flatware on the table.
So how did I do, Elaine?
Update: I found a photo of this cloth new in the box for sale on ebay. The auction is still active if you'd like one for your tabletop!
Now we know that the name of this cloth is "Provincial Rooster Comb."
