House TalkN is a fun lookiloo at houses, houses, houses. It will answer pressing questions like, "When folks build a McMansion on a small lot, what are they compensating for?" or "Was the real estate agent drunk when they staged this house?" or "Why don't the Smiths' ever leave their drapes open when I am on a harmless walk-by?"

Tablescape With A Twist...

I love to link par-taay at "Between Naps On The Porch" - she is the hostess with the mostest of "Tablescape Thursday".  (If you don't know what a link party is, click here to hear about my link party fears!)

My own tablescapes this week often consisted of paper plates and/or took place in our swagger wagon.  Before I was actually a parent, I would offer really helpful parenting tips like - "You should never eat in a car and your dinners should always be about grace and courtesy and family time"...oh, yes, I did!

This week,  I thought I would share a new kind of tablescape.

I was "working" (shut up, already.  Blogging is very hard work...oh, yes, it is!)  on a blog post about one of my favorite shops - Checkered Moon and thought that I would share some fun ways to shake up a tablescape!  Here are some fun finds and some eye candy for a Girls Night Out-ish tablescape!

I love the numbers- is that to keep track of drinks?

Book Club, anyone?

Napkins can be a great place to find life lessons.

Fun party favors!

Can you say "GLAM"?

  1. Must have those napkins for my next book club meeting. You make blog posts look easy.

  2. I just saw your posting on BNOTP. What a fun blog you have! I adore your happy hour images. So nice!! I am a new blogger and your newest follower. I hope you will follow back! Many blessings to you!

  3. I like those wine glasses! I've been thinking about etching a set of water glasses with numbers for a while now. All our glasses look the same, so I'm always forgetting which glass belongs to which person. And we end up going through so many dishes. Someday I'll get around to it!

  4. I love the details of your gorgeous little party... especially those little party favors!

  5. Fun things, indeed. Someone gave me a bag with the volunteer message on it, and every time someone asks me to do something my husband finds it and not so subtly waves it in front of me!

  6. Oh, wow....I WANT those numbered wine glasses!!! Those are SO cute!!! And, yes, blogging IS very hard work. I totally agree! My husband actually understands that now...especially when I have him to help me with setting up tables! :-)

  7. I love your post and I love to find fun napkins, too!!!! The only time we use paper at Linderhof!
