HAPPY TRAILS PARDNER

By now, most of you know that my sweetheart is a cowboy wannabe, so I’ve done yet another cowboy table – this time for Father’s Day. If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, you’ve probably seen most of this tablescape on my husband’s birthday posts.
So if’n yer wore out with my cowboy chow tables, all I can say is “Shore am mighty sorry bout that”.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

This is a very cute table and I would love something like this! Cute cowboy plates, were those restaurant plates? Very cool!!! Oh and the tie table is amazing!

Kathryn @ Bonafide Southern said...

Oh, I just love this! You always have the neatest stuff...and so much of it! :) I love those tiny little amber boots. They're precious, as is your entire table. Thanks for sharing and happy TT to you!

Jacqueline said...

Very cute table. Loved the plates and the- did you call them- jiggers? So cute. Fun Father's Day theme.

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

You are so clever Laurie!
I can't believe the things you come up with~ What guy of any age wouldn't love this table! Those cowboy plates are really neat and your boot is the perfect centerpiece~ I wish I could grow crepe myrtle up here~ I don't think they are zoned for us, probably couldn't survive our winters.
Hugs,
Cindy

LBeau is also a cowboy wannabe. He used to ride in rodeos all over northeast Arkansas when he was growing up. Got to see Susie's kitchen redo when I was in Little Rock helping out with Lucy. Looks pretty much the same, but she's got some new fixtures and wonderful new appliances.

Martha said...

What a clever table! I love the cowboy theme -- goes right along with our Echoes of the Trail Cowboy music and poetry fest we had last weekend!

Great great table!

Tricia@The Dull and the Dutiful said...

What a delightful table! I know your favorite cowboy will be thrilled! The cowboy-themed plates and napkins are wonderful, and I love the flowers in the boots! My nephew recently married in Austin, and the tables at the rehearsal dinner were decorated with boots of wildflowers -- so cool!

Karen said...

Absolutely fabulous tablescapes. I even had to Google the slice of life plates. I'll be studying those in a bit. And the blog picture your "sweet friend" asked for is adorable. Love the bunny and the tie!!!
Have a great day.

Sarah said...

Laurie, you have the best imagination for creating interesting and unique tables with a theme. This one is darling! Love all the cowboy plates and the boot centerpiece. The tie table is fantastic. I'm going to go back and read that post because I missed it last year. It was before my blogging time. LOL
Have a great weekend! ~ Sarah

Bill said...

Every detail of your table is wonderful, Laurie! The textures and colors are great, and the way you've kept things airy and uncluttered really captures a feeling of the wide open spaces!
Headed off to see your tie table from last year -- it looks like great fun too!

Warmest regards,
Bill

Mimi said...

Laurie, this is the cutest table I have seen in ages. I had to show it to the hubby, he loves it!

Mid-Atlantic Martha said...

How cute is this! I love the flowers in the boot -- I don't have a cowboy husband, but I do have a cowboy son-in-law! He would just love to park his boots under this fun table.

Mellodee said...

Not being the most creative person on the planet, my table-settings skills were limited to linens and flowers and the occasional napkin ring. I thought that the beautiful, clever, and creative "tablescapes" were only in magazines and would be very expensive to do at home. And then I started blogging!! What a naive assumption by the clueless! Now I realize that its almost a mission to find fun and thrifty items to use. I wish I'd figured that out years ago. These days nobody cooks around here,and we rarely have guests, so there's not much point.

But I love all the ones I see in Bloggerville, especially here!! You use such wonderful colors, great combos, unusual and attractive accessories. I am impressed every time you post. Thanks so much for sharing your tables with us!

p.s. I'm leaving the same message at "That Old House", 'cuz her tablescapes are nearly as clever as yours. You both are stars!

Cynthia said...

Howdy tablescaper! Love both of the tables you have posted today. Thanks for sharing and have a great day!

HollyC said...

Howdy! What a wonderful blog you have here! I'm so glad I found you! I thought that the cowboy table was the cutest thing ever...until I got down to the tie table! Presh! Thanks for sharing! ~Holly

Pinky said...

HI Laurie, I just love your cowboy table! The boot arrangement is great as well as the linens and the little jiggers! Great details! I noticed you asking us to send cards to Linda. I have done so, also sent her a litlle gift. She is such a sweetheart!!!!! I'll be back and am now heaeded over to see last years table post! XO, Pinky

GrannySue said...

I think the table is perfect. I'm off to see last year's table myself.

LUCKY 7 DESIGN said...

Laurie...I love the cowboy napkins. This is a really fun tablescape. My bff's daughter is having a cowboy themed bday party this year in July. Thanks for some inspiration..I of course volunteered to do the tablescapes for the party. Great tie table too....please enter me in the giveaway too.

Phyllis AROUND THE HOUSE said...

The Tablescaper said...

Love your table Laurie. I think it's your best yet!

I'm so glad you reposted last year's father's day. I hadn't seen it and love it!

I couldn't believe it but at Homegoods today, they had a whole tablescape set up for cowboys. It was like deja vu. Yours is cuter I think...but I had to tell you about it!

Laurie, I love your cowboy/cowgirl table! Those plates are so cute and I love your boot centerpiece! You are just so creative. I remember the Tie One On table from last year and still think it is amazing!
