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!

Are you enjoying the late summer 
as much as I am?  The days are definitely
getting shorter as we move towards fall!
 This table is a perfect casual setup for 
a sunflower theme bridal or baby shower
or luncheon for a special someone.
 I mixed vintage with new in a 
neutral brown color combination
with a few pops of yellow and coral.
 Vintage brown dripware hull pottery
dinner plates, teacups and servings pieces
along with vintage amber glasses 
went perfectly with the sunflower linen and paper
 I thought the coral hydrangea made a nice
nod to summer without being too loud.
 This little sugar pot has lost its creamer mate,
but he was to cute not to put out on a saucer.
 My Great Aunt always entertained with both
linen and paper napkins on the table.
She said the linen was for "show" and the
the paper was for lipstick & bbq!  
I have adopted her idea as well.
 The bronzed sunflower napkin rings
match the dinner plate,
which has a flower pattern around the border.
And the brown check paper table runner
makes a perfect base layer.
 I have two sets of bamboo flatware
light and dark brown.  Since it's still
summer I decided to use the light brown.
You can find the dark version still 
online at 
 Please join us on Facebook for lots
more sunflower tables, recipe and 
shower ideas this week!
Or in a few weeks our store will be open
at 11720 Old Shelbyville Road
Louisville KY 40243
and you can shop for all the items here
when you stop by for a visit!

Dog Days of Celebrating!

Welcome to the table where we are celebrating
all things dog gone good!
 Bright colors and playful patterns adorn this table
for a fun celebration.  I used my Lenox dinner plates
along with mix and match Sabre flatware,
adorable dog paper napkins and salad plates & 
vintage yellow glassware.
 I love the blue and white check
paper table runner with all the other colors of the table.
with red collar napkin rings
I found on Ebay ages ago.
 The cutest little dog place card
holders are waiting for your name at the table.
I got these a few years ago
at Boxwoods in Atlanta.
 A few mini stuffed puppies scattered on the table
are now making a favorite playtime
activity with our grandson Max.
I found them on Oriental Trading.
 A magnetic salt and pepper showing that 
cats and dogs can really be friends.
Purchased on Amazon Here.

A quick and simple centerpiece of
Gerber daisies make the final touch
to our fun table!
Wouldn't this be a great table
along with a hot dog bar
with tons of toppings.
Celebrate the blessings of family & friends
with easy and elegant ideas that are fun!
