Is there a lack of stimulating conversation at your dinner table???
Is the sound of the knives and forks the only music you hear?
If he says , “This is ok, but don’t make it again.” will you scream?
This may be the solution!
My friend Denise from the Holiday Forum on Garden Web came up with a challenge..a table based on a game..
This is a very busy week here, Memorial Day, family coming for the weekend , cooking, and helping with the community picnic here. But I couldn’t say no!
So I thought of something that wouldn’t take much time..
I used painters tape for the board, starfish and sand dollars for the game pieces..
Navy blue dinner, and beach chair plate from CTS..
Pale blue napkins from the year of the flood..
Light blue tumblers from CTS, sailboat s and p’s too
Since we are at the beach , we needed a place for the lifeguard to sit.
Little Nantucket baskets with some white petunias that are waiting to get planted…They can also be used as votive holders..1.00 end of summer sale at CTS..
Little covered basket for the bread..
Shell dish from CTS last week..1.69..Good for nuts, or olives or pickles or whatever!
Little glass fish and shell shape scatters..
So tonight at dinner, instead of watching Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune, or getting agita from hearing the bad news from Wall St and the economy…we can play Tic Tac Toe..I know Starfish already won..:)
Just a little fun challenge..I was going to do Apples to Apples..did you ever play that game? It is fun..but there is no board, just cards. so it didn’t lend itself to a table!
I am joining dear Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for Tabletop Tuesday. And Rhoda at Southern Hospitality for Thrifty Treasures. We don’t have good thrift shops here, but I think my CTS buys qualify as thrifty!
Thanks for visiting!
