Good evening, Ladies! Cathy from Cathy’s Cupboard Calamity suggested this theme for a challenge. She thought it would be fun to do a whimsical table using girlie things to have a night out party.
I had some plates I had hoped to use, but due to appointments, I didn’t have time to find them in the basement. Next time!
Ladies’ Night Out
Your work day is done
Forget all your troubles
It’s time for some fun!
We’re not doing games
I think we’ll just talk
Now this only rhymes
If you come from New York!
Who’s heard a good joke?
It has to be funny
Or tell us your bargains
That saved lots of money!
Spending time with your friends
Gabbing for hours and hours
Is as good for your spirits
As some beautiful flowers!
I’ll wine you and dine you
With good foods I’ll regale
But whatever I serve you
You know was on SALE!
Speaking of sales, 3 things are making their debut tonight.
The red stems are from Pier One,
Originally 7.00 I waited till they were marked down to 1.98 I got 12…good for Christmas, Valentine’s and Patriotic
The Tablecloth is a fabric shower curtain, $2.50 from Christmas Tree Shop
The green flatware by Cambridge was in the clearance at Cmas Tree Shops. Only one box, and with my coupon I got it for $4.00
At each place is a little flower pot post it pad, a take home. Since there were Hyacinths on it, it had to be for Sarah!
Green pitcher…gift from Alma
Green stems…Christmas Tree Shop ...White butter domes CTS
Orange plates…Dollar Tree Red salad WSonoma OUTLET
Green lily of the valley napkins, WSonoma OUTLET
Lace chargers, Ikea
Green soup bowls a gift from Karen, a friend from where I first started tablescaping on the Garden Web many years ago.
Centerpiece is an enamel pail filled with fresh lime green flowers. I stuck in a few faux red and orange poppies. HINT…take the faux flower off and use the stem of a real flower to place it in the arrangement.
Thanks so much for stopping by to look even if you couldn’t take the challenge tonight. I have a few more ideas for May, June, July and August. Let me know if you are interested. I’ve noticed tablescaping seems to have waned, blogs that used to get over 100 entries rarely get half that. It is a lot of work, I know! Some like it, some don’t!
Same rules apply. Stick to the theme, new post, link back to this party and blog name first. If you have word id, please disable it, people don’t like to bother with it to leave a comment. Please visit at least 5, if we have that many, lol, entries.
