Do you ever have one of those ideas that looks great in your mind, but when you execute it, it isn’t exactly what you expected?  That happens to me frequently.  Most recently, it happened last Saturday night.  I thought I was going to do a great Superbowl Sunday tablescape.  Reality didn’t set in until I started taking the photos.  I almost didn’t post this, but I like to keep it real at BH&CwL.  (I also didn’t have anything else to post.)  I’m partying with Cuisine Kathleen for Let’s Dish Wednesday and Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.

Don’t call the Tablescape Police.  I know my utensils are not placed correctly.  And what is that spoon doing in a corn holder?  Well, the idea was that I had the white lines on the football field going across the table.  (Anything for the theme.)

You have to use your imagination when you see my “goal posts”.  (When I was snapping pictures, I was laughing out loud, so some pictures may be a little shaky. At one point, I decided the white lines looked like I had unrolled toilet paper onto the table-it’s really ribbon between the napkin on one side and the corn holder with spoon on the other side.)  Hey! I could have called it the Toilet Bowl dinner - not very appetizing though)

Please come back and link up for my Valentine Party on February 11th!  The linkup will be here Sunday night after 7:00 p.m.

Thank you for coming to see my failed great tablescape.  Well, it was great – in my mind.  laurie

I'm linking to Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch.

Recently, when the Arkansas Razorbacks played in the Liberty Bowl, we had a faux tailgate supper. It was soooo cold that night that we were glad to be watching the game at home on television while eating a chili dog.

Who would have ever thought that an entire state would be proud of calling the hogs? Yes, we do call them, and yes, we are proud of it! PIG SOOOOOOIEEEEE, RAZORBACKS!

Now I would like to share a more formal tablescape.

I know, I know - my subliminal message isn't very subliminal. Click over to Between Naps on the Porch, where you'll find links to wonderful tablescapes. Thank you for coming to our faux tailgate supper. laurie
