BBQ Summer Table

Welcome to the Table!
What fun setting up this summery bbq table
in my kitchen! 
 Stripes, checks and gingham are the perfect
mix of pattern play for summer days.

 The settings were a mix of black white red 
and pops of yellow!
 This Piggy Platter is perfect for
your burgers, toppings or anything
else you are serving on
your table.

 Hamburger salt and pepper are
the perfect touch for the table.
 The paper black and white stripe
table runner sets a nice
foundation for the silk geranium
and fern arrangement.
 I stocked some fun kitchen timers
this year at the store, this ketchup bottle
being one of them.  They are a fun whimsical
to add to your kitchen.
 We love our American Flag in the
kitchen all year long, but
summertime is one of our favorite times.
 At each place setting I set a bottle cap coaster
for the beer bottles.
 The set of four melamine plates
are perfect for bbq because they
are shatterproof and can be used inside
for slippery fingers and outdoors poolside.
 For your corn cob I found these tray
and pig holders on Amazon.

Hope you are enjoying your summer
stop by the store to pickup items
for your BBQ table soon!

Beeutiful Beehive Tablescape

 Thanks for stopping by.  Today's table is setup
for the bee lover in mind.
The table is grounded with this great bee skep
I found online a few years ago.
I found another similar one Walmart.

For our place setting we've used
the white and gold metal plate chargers,
a white milk glass dinner plate,
a yellow linen napkin with a embroidered bee
 and a gold bee napkin ring.
Vintage yellow glasses match the napkins
for a sunny table.

These cute bee and lavender paper cocktail napkins were 
placed around the table.
 Trivet tray Queen Bee plates
were placed around the table for
extra fun.
I can't wait to share all these items with
you when we reopen for business in
a few weeks.

Taco Bout Love Grandson Date Night

 Welcome to the table!
Where we are featuring a Valentine's Edition
of the Grandson Date Night~
Taco Bout Love!
 I used my everyday flatware along with a Love You
paper napkin and red paper plate from the store.
I thought this conversation heart paper
placemat was the perfect "talk" theme.
 Valentine's Day is not really three grandsons
cup of tea so I'm always trying to think of 
out of the box boy themes.
I saw these taco holders on Amazon & the idea 
came to me to make it tacos and dinsosaurs!
 Regular red roses did not see the 
right fit for this table so I picked up a bouquet
of bright colors to use as the 
 Then I sprinkled some plastic
multi colored dinosaurs around
the table for fun.

 Adding these adorable
Tacos are my Valentine cocktail
napkins, which fit the theme perfectly.

Here are the links to the dinosaurs:

Booutiful Breakfast II

We are back at the kitchen table 
for another Booutiful table idea!
This time I combined milkglass, orange and white
gingham paper placemats, buffalo plaid chargers
Halloween tea towels,
black paper plates & festive Halloween paper napkins.
 At each place setting there's a mix and match
set of flatware.
In addition I used Queen of Halloween
black and orange paper cocktail napkins
as a coaster for those juice spills that
happen at breakfast!
 To secure the napkins I placed
a skull napkin ring on each place setting.
And I put a ghost spreader 
in front of each place setting, which I thought would
be fun for buttering toast!

 I filled each milk glass compote with 
stripe and polka dot pumpkins.
I set those in front of my B O O sign.
 My ghost and cat pumpkin 
salt and pepper shakers always seem to fit
my Halloween tables.
 Here's a better picture of the B O O sign, 
which lights up at night.  
I only see Orange available online now,
but I linked it below.
 Thanks for stopping by today
hope you enjoyed the table!

family and friends this Halloween.

Booutiful Breakfast Table

With Halloween falling on a weekday this year
why not plan a special celebration
Halloween Booutiful breakfast?
The best thing is everything here
is paper so it's an 
easy weekday cleanup!
 Starting with plaid napkins I used as placemats
I found these orange and black plaid napkins 
on Amazon last year,
but we've several similar styles at the store.
 Next I used an old set of 
black cat and ghost salt and peppers
and paper buffalo check cups.
 Finally I layered black dinner plate,
an orange salad plate and a Boo napkin.
All of these are available at the store.
I found the flatware on Amazon for $20 for the set.
Here's the link:
 A few festive pumpkins down the center
and one at each place setting.
Thanks for stopping by~
be sure to visit us on Facebook for lots
 of recipes, tablescapes and ideas

Murder Mystery Girls Night Ideas

Earlier this week I shared a
tablescape for a Ghoulish Girls Night.
Red Herring Games Murder at Curst Mansion - murder mystery game for 12 players

Today I'm sharing ideas to plan your own
Murder Mystery Night.
This would be a great idea 
for Girls Night, but also
for a birthday party or family gathering.

Murder Mystery Party Games - A Taste for Wine and Murder, Host Your Own Murder Mystery Dinner for 8 Adult Players, Solve the Case with Crime Scene Clues, 18 Years and Up
When I began planning this earlier this summer
I thought I would have to develop an entire
theme dinner plan for the murder mystery.
However, once I began the research I 
discovered so many affordable
kits and games already available 
for purchase online.
I found several at Amazon.

In addition there are a lot of free
planning guides/scripts if
you search my Pinterest page.
Here's the link to several below:

Football Kickoff!

Are you ready for football season?
I know for many of us the kids football
has already started about a month ago,
but the official NFL and college games
start this weekend.
 In celebration I setup this football theme
table mixing vintage and new along with 
my favorite blue and white!
 Football coasters are under milk glass tumblers
along with football placemats and squeeze balls.
You can find the placemats & coasters at the store
the little footballs were from Amazon.
 I used our everyday plates and flatware
but added a nay linen tassel napkin.
 Finally I added a little yard line treat box
on the center of each plate.
The centerpiece was a bowlful of footballs
always a hit with the grandsons.
They can be found here on Amazon.

Thanks for joining me today I hope your favorite
team has an excellent season!
