It's time for Tablescape Thursday and this week I'm sharing a table set for our SIL's birthday dinner. As you can tell, he's our family cowboy -- he even wore his cowboy hat at his wedding. With four grandgirls, it's fun to have an occasion to bring out some cowboy decor.....and if a couple of those grandgirls decide to be cowgirls....well we can certainly adapt.
Howdy Pardner....what brings you to these parts? Come on in and park your boots awhile.
We've got a cowboy spread so get ready to chow down.
Mighty fine to have you join us.
You take this here red plate.
Got it a few years back from the Marshall's....(not to be confused with the sheriffs.)
Every cowpoke gets a bandana ...we have us some manners around these parts....no sleeve wiping!
And jest for good measure....we get an extra plate...boy howdy....looks like a big throw down!
While we're a waitin'...we can check out the rodeo.
Looks like the chow is ready at the chuck wagon. I hear tell that the cook's wrestled up some crab cakes, boiled new potatoes, tossed salad, green beans, fresh cantaloupe, corn on the cob, corn bread, sweet tea and hot homemade blackberry cobbler with vanilla ice cream! Good enough for a hungry cowboy after working with the horses all day.
Whew...I think I've worked up a big thurst....how about you?
Gosh....sure hope we don't have to catch us some chickens for supper! And it looks like we won't be brewing up coffee in that ole' coffee pot -- but those daisies shore do look purdy.
Always seems to be a horse or two around here that needs shoeing.
Keep those horseshoes up....so the good luck don't all spill out!
I think daisies are the cowboy choice of flowers....don't you?
And this old cowpoke's ridden a horse or two -- check out those bow legs.
Checkered tablecloth layered under the cowboy cloth and black iron flatware. (must be the ranch brand)
A couple of overviews.
And our little cowpoke sings "Happy trails to you....until we meet again...." Ya'll come back now....and be sure to mosey on over to "Between Naps on the Porch" and check out all the tables that Susan has on display this week....even some for you city folks!
