One reason I like baseball is that I can watch a baseball game and eat at the same time.  If I get up to get a snack, while watching most sports, I inevitably miss the touchdown or the basket.  While I’m stuffing my face, I hear everyone yelling and cheering, and I know that I missed another exciting play.  But baseball gives me plenty of time to stuff my face snack and still catch most of the action.  I’m sharing our snack supper table for Saturday night’s World Series game.

 I’ve had almost everything on this table too long to remember where I got most of it.  I did recently purchase those cute dessert forks from an on-line source, Zulily (which normally sells children's clothing).  The maker is Amici.  I also recently purchased the melamine silhouette Halloween plates from a Christmas store.  The maker is Glitterville   The witch shoe spreaders and the devil cake stand were gifts from a friend
Thank you so much for coming to visit me.  laurie

Love your spread! Gotta a question- where did you get your silverware or did you make it.

Your blog has so much information on it that I am going to follow you and learn much.

Laurie, you do the cutest tablescapes and I love your menu. Now a snack at our house is a bowl of popcorn or some cheese and crackers and that's it. You have the cutest Halloween things and you definitely make it all so inviting. Love everything. Hugs, Marty

You just have the cutest stuff, Laurie! You remind me of my mom. She can find stuff like that too. I love the footed cake plate the best of all, and "The Devil Made Me Eat It" cracked me up. I need that one.

And I really like the way you put the crackers in those pumpkin cups, too. My poor husband. I gave him a bowl of chips and asked him to watch in another room.

Thanks for sharing...
