The Good Earth~ Ideas and Arm Twisting! I mean Encouragement!

I thought I would post a few tables I have done in the past with a theme that could fit Earth Day.  I have received  some emails  from some saying they had NO idea what to do!  Come ON! You can do it!  Anything under the sun qualifies, if it grows or lives on Earth, including the sea!

table 973

Garden themed...lots of flowers.

table 2585

Tropical theme, complete with little monkey name holders from PB.

table 2675

Little blue flower pots, floral cloth and watering cans.

table 2883

A little fishy or beachy?

table 4050

Beachy tic tac toe!

Bargains 546

Watermelons are earthy!  Vegetables are  too!

Augyst and dinner dance 334

Bees here, but butterflies, lady bugs, you get the idea!

Everything UNDER the sun!  You all have flowers of some kind, go with it!

Augyst and dinner dance 417

Or apples!

Bargains 528

Or Lemons!

Hoping to see you Wednesday night at 7 PM for Let's Dish Challenge, The Good Earth!  Of course there will be a little give away too!

Please start thinking of topics for next month's challenge.  I'd love to hear your ideas for May! 

Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Kathleen,I have an idea, actually a couple, my problem is no budget for props, no place to store the props if I do buy some, stores here do not carry items like I see in other parts of the country, guess we don't do vignettes or tablescapes that much here, I don't know. But I will be joining you! xo

  12. Oh my gosh Kathleen, this was so much fun! Where do you get all your adorable napkin rings? Those watering cans are simply adorable. I would love to joint these parties, but I'm not sure of the rules. Could you please tell me where to find them. Thanks for your help.

  13. All beautiful and creative but I love that first table, such a pretty tablecloth!

  14. I remember some of these wonderful tables, but not all of them!! LOVE the black & yellow bee one & I CERTAINLY remembered the watermelon one.

    How about a tribute to our Mother's for the month of May??? It could be a table with her dishes or just one single piece, such as a vase or a special candy dish? SOMETHING that she owned & that you treasure simply because it was hers, not because of its monetary value.

    Looking forward to Wed!!!
    Hugs,

    1. That is a good idea, Rett. It could even be a table dedicated to our moms, their favorite color or flower as the centerpiece.

  15. These are great! I admit I am really struggling with this one. I have a few ideas but am running short on time. Will you be keeping the link open until Thursday? I am working Wednesday but am off Thursday and need just a bit more time to put it all together in a post. Just wondering when your cut off time is on the linky? Thanks!

  18. Kathleen, I loved seeing all of these wonderful tables at one time. I don't remember the apple table, but the others are familiar to me. You are an amazing tablescaper! You always add such special details and usually something fun. Your scapes always inspire me. laurie

  20. I finished my post this evening. Been under the weather and didn't believe I could think of anything. Pearl Buck kept interrupting.LOL So, the post is in draft and I am ready to go. I like it...kind of a pretty one if I do say so myself.:-)

  21. You have no idea how much I want to do this. I even bought some inspiration dishware just for the occasion at the Restore. I'm afraid I might not get to it because of my obligation/busyness that I yakked about on the blog, but I'm still going to try!

    I know what I'm going to do. Just need to put it together.

    When will I learn to just say no?

  22. These are amazing tables Kathleen! Happy, pretty, and sweet!

  23. There's something about those yellow tables that really catches my eyes! I really love that bee-themed table and how the black dotted plates really sets off the yellow.

  28. Oh my, so much to see and every table is just gorgeous! I would be embarrassed to try and compete. Thanks so much for sharing...it's really difficult for me to choose a favorite. I adore dishes, linens and stemware and you have a wonderful variety!

  29. NOW I get it!!! I was thinking we had to get all Mother Nature/Hug A Tree/Euell Gibbons/Kumbaya about it! The examples you show here are doable. I may have to pull from the archives at this late date, too, but I'll be here. Shoot....I'm working on something right now that would be really cool for it, but there is a lot of "crafty" work involved that is bogging me down. (I HATE having to do crafty stuff, but sometimes I have to give in!!!) I don't think I could get 'er done, photograph it all, and work up a post in time. At any rate, I'll be here. See ya tomorrow! Oh....yours are all really cool, and I particularly like the beachy tic tac toe!!!

  32. LOVE everyone of these tablescapes. You are one of the most talented and creative blogger I know. Had not seen the watermelon one before. It just tickled me pink. But all of them are delightful Kathleen!!

  33. I just popped by to see if you got my email. I also posted about one of my favourite teacups today but am not sure if it will work with your party's theme. If you think it's linkable please let me know as I really want to join in with your meme!

    Best wishes always,
    Natasha.
