57th Tablescape - Farm & Flowers

Here is a "fun" tablescape!  My sister and her family are coming to visit for a few days from Alaska!  Since my nephew is 10 and my niece just a todler - I thought I would attempt a child friendly tablescape! 
 I started with a flowered, lacy "orange" tablecloth" and mixing it up a little, the two end settings will be for my niece and nephew with the adults occupying the center settings..

 The white chargers are Homer Laughlin; the braided gold chargers are Roscher & Co.
 The pig was acquired from my sister, Dawn, she picked it up for me and he usually has his place on the kitchen counter, but for my "Farm and Flowers" tablescape to welcome family & friends!
 Here is the finished tablescape!

 The two end settings are "chicken- themed"....

 These two settings are "cabbaged" themed!
 With chicken napkin rings

 Couldn't resist these little cabbage salt/pepper shakers - aren't they cute?

 and this side of the table is sunflowers......

 and we brought out a few roosters to decorate the buffet...

And now the candles are lite......
